For the first time in a few years, it's going to cost a little more to go to Eagles games.
The Eagles have raised ticket prices by an average of $7 per game for the 2017 season, the team said. The increase ranges from $5 to $15 per ticket. The average ticket price will go from $99 to $106.
This is the first time the team has raised ticket prices since 2014.
The rise in ticket prices has been met with understandable indignation from fans after the Eagles went 7-9 in 2016. They haven't been to the playoffs since 2013 and haven't won a playoff game since 2008.
The team said it communicated the rise in ticket prices to season ticket holders last week. Here's a copy of a letter to a season ticket holder, via PhillyInfluencer.com:
Thank you for your support as an Eagles Season Ticket Member. Your passion and enthusiasm energizes Lincoln Financial Field every game day, and it is awesome!
Your Season Ticket account renewal information is now available online. Please note that season ticket prices have increased for the first time since 2014. As always, you have the option to pay in full, make two separate payments or enroll in the four-payment plan via your online Account Manager. If you choose to either pay in two installments or enroll in the four-payment plan, you must do so by March 15, 2017. Your account must be paid in full by June 15, 2017.
We will be using variable pricing, again, for the 2017 season. Individual game price categories will be announced at a later date. Please note that variable pricing does not affect the overall price of your season ticket package.
While the Eagles finished 2016 with a losing record with a first-year head coach, they started out hot at 3-0 before an eventual collapse. There are still many pieces to add but the team believes it has found its franchise quarterback in Carson Wentz.
