The Lions have reduced prices on 19,000 of their season tickets which are now on sale. The pricing for the remaining season tickets will remain the same as last year.
It’s a smart move by the Lions, and in reality, the only one they could wisely make. Their team is coming off a 2-14 season and, as you may recall, is 2-30 over the last two seasons. It’s a team that seems on the rise, but it’s going to take time to rebuild it the right way.
Even diehard fans could have trouble coming up with ticket money due to the high unemployment rate and the lousy Detroit-area economy.
“We are very appreciative of the extraordinary support of our fans,’’ said Tom Lewand, Lions president. “Their passion for this team is among the best of any professional sports franchise. Over the past two seasons we have offered several ticket options with the hope that more Lions’ fans will have the opportunity to attend games at Ford Field. We believe this is another positive and more affordable option for our fans.’’
The seats with reduced prices include 3,000 club seats and 16,000 in the lower and upper levels. Savings range from $80 to $140 per season ticket.
