When you are Super Bowl Champions, there are several benefits to that title, and perhaps one of the bigger from a business perspective is the ability to raise ticket prices and the Baltimore Ravens will be doing just that next season.
Considering the entire professional sports world, Ravens fans are actually pretty lucky in that this is the first time in four years that Baltimore will raise their ticket prices and only the sixth time since M&T Bank Stadium opened in 1998, which is pretty low compared to a lot of professional sports teams out there.
The Ravens are raising ticket prices for non club or suite level tickets an average of 10% for this upcoming season. Club and suite level tickets will see a smaller increase. The team cited player cost as the reason for the price increase, but have already stated that ticket prices will remain the same for the 2014 season, thus meaning no back to back year increases for ticket prices.
Season ticket holders for this past season will receive their renewal letters this week and will get a full explanation of the ticket price increase. Game tickets for non suite or club level seats will now range from $64 to $140 and the Ravens are also increasing their price for game-day parking from $35 per car to $40 per car.
Baltimore did state that this was a planned increase and had nothing to do with winning the Super Bowl, but although they would probably not admit it, winning the Super Bowl will certainly help ease the pain for fans.
