Browns will not raise ticket prices for 2013; cell service issues to be rectified

Cleveland Browns season ticket prices will remain flat for the 2013 home schedule, the team announced today.

This marks the fifth straight year in which the price of Browns season tickets has not increased, representing the second-longest current streak in the NFL. In addition, with the current pricing structure, the average cost of a Browns ticket is the second-lowest cost in the NFL. Since the opening of FirstEnergy Stadium in 1999, there have been select sections which did not require a PSL for season ticket purchases. That has now been expanded to comprise all locations 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,” said Browns CEO Joe Banner. “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.”

In addition to the lack of an increase on ticket prices, the Browns have also announced a “significant upgrade” to their game day experience, including an improvement in the lack of cellular network service inside of the venue.

“This year we are going to work on improving all aspects of our game day experience, including cell phone service, which will undergo a significant upgrade starting in 2013,” Browns President Alec Scheiner added. “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.”

    Whoa whoa… you can buy season tickets without a PSL in sections other than the Dawg Pound?!?

    1. the second-lowest, not second least expensive

    2. sections THAT did not require, not which (Joe got it right!)

    3. I’m going to pretend that the fourth paragraph never happened.

    4. To close on a positive note, that was a superbly correct use of the chronically maltreated word “comprise.”

    For what we’ve witnessed over the past 13 years, they really should be lowering prices.
