The Browns will not increase season-ticket prices for 2013, the team announced Monday.
This is the fifth consecutive year in which season-ticket prices have been maintained, and the average cost of a Browns ticket is the second least expensive in the NFL, according to a press release distributed by team.
Since 1999, there have been select sections at FirstEnergy Stadium that did not require a PSL for season-ticket purchases. That policy now exists in all sections in which season tickets are still available.
“Our fans have exhibited tremendous loyalty over the years and we want to continue to reward that loyalty through affordability and by putting a team on the field of which they can be proud,” Browns CEO Joe Banner said in a statement. “To maintain that affordability, it was important that we keep the status quo on ticket prices for the fifth consecutive year and also extend the sections of the stadium that do not require a PSL.”
Renewal notices for current Browns season-ticket holders will be sent starting this week via e-mail and home delivery. Payment plan options are being offered for all season-ticket holders.
Only existing PSL holders will have a chance to purchase additional season tickets without a PSL fee but with full PSL benefits for any additional seat they buy. PSL account holders can take advantage of the opportunity for any number of seats not to exceed their current allotment of season tickets through April 1.
“This year we are going to work on improving all aspects of our game day experience, including cellphone service, which will undergo a significant upgrade starting in 2013,” Browns President Alec Scheiner said in a statement. “We hope to create an environment that will be enjoyable for all of our fans and difficult for our opponents. We are fully committed to having a team that will be successful on a consistent basis, and providing our fans with a compelling game day experience.”
Season tickets start at $190 for the 10-game home package, which includes two preseason games, and deposits are now being accepted.
