Struggling Flyers raise ticket price for 2012-13
Season-ticket holders aren’t happy. Not only have the Flyers won onlytwo of their last eight home games, but next year it will be moreexpensive to watch them.
With the NHL playoffs around the corner, the Flyers’ buzz is growing. The trade deadline is looming and everyone wants the latest scoop.
But season-ticket holders aren’t happy. Not only have the Flyers won only two of their last eight home games, but next year it will be more expensive to watch them.
Season-ticket holders were informed that prices will go up next season — $2 in the upper level, $3, $4 or $7 in the lower level. The average ticket price increased by $6 for the 2011-12 season, which had been the Flyers’ first ticket hike in five years.
“I was expecting an increase last year; I was not expecting it to be that large,” said Scott Pringle, 27, of Berkeley Heights, N.J. who is in his fourth season as a season ticket holder. “I’m really surprised and shocked that there’s another increase. I was paying $36 two years ago and now it’s gonna be $45 next season.”
