The San Francisco 49ers are going to be raising ticket prices again next year in spite of another lousy year and the prospect of another losing season. But they are will be raising the prices of only the best seats at Candlestick Park to stick it to the long time season ticket holders.
I can only think of one reason the 49ers would jack up the fans again this year after raising prices the last several years as they lost more and more games and that is to get rid of many of the season ticket holders so they can either make them available to the corporate stiffs financing the new stadium or to get more money for those tickets when the season ticket holder drops them.
San Francisco 49er season ticket holders get a discount for buying the full season. But if you buy individual games those ticket prices for similar seats will cost you a whole lot more. And the 49ers can get 20% more per ticket from individual ticket sales compared to a season ticket holders price.
It’s hard to believe a team that has performed so poorly would raise ticket prices again. But the San Francisco 49ers look like they are trying to get the current 49er fans to pay for the new 49ers stadium they wish to build in Santa Clara. And with the way the 49ers are playing today even that is not likely to happen.
