In 2017, the Green Bay packers went 7-9 and missed the postseason for the first time since 2008. Just in case you thought it was a fluke, the team went on to get a 6-9-1 record in 2018 and miss the playoffs for the second-straight season.
Despite back to back seasons of bad football, the franchise elected to raise ticket prices, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.
The Packers announced the annual ticket-price increase. Here’s what will change for this season, according to the team’s announcement: Regular-season tickets will increase between $1 and $6 per game, depending on location, with more than half of the tickets increasing $2 or less per game. “This pricing increase continues our practice of keeping our prices just below the middle of NFL pricing, while recognizing the value of the gameday experience at Lambeau Field and providing shared revenue to our fellow NFL teams,” Packers president Mark Murphy said.
The team parted ways with head coach Mike McCarthy during the 2018 season and hired new head coach Matt LaFleur to lead the team back to the promised land while QB Aaron Rodgers is still at the top of his game.
Being below average is certainly not the norm for a franchise that has only missed the playoffs 6 times since 1992.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
