Price freeze

For the second straight season, the Green Bay Packers will not raise ticket prices. The team said Tuesday that prices will remain the same for most fans as the renovation to Lambeau Field continues.<p>

The Packers also decided not to raise prices after charging season ticket holders user fees totaling $2,000 per seat - $1,400 for Green Bay package season ticket holders and $600 for Milwaukee packages - prior to the start of last season. The user fees are part of the private sector share of the $295 million stadium renovation plan.

"I might add that we, as an organization, continue to be sensitive to the financial concerns of our fans while striving to remain competitive within the ever-changing economics of professional football.

"In so doing, we have tried to stay somewhere in the middle of the pack from the ticket-pricing perspective," Harlan said, adding that the Packers have not raised ticket prices since the 2000 season. Based on the gross average ticket prices for the 2001 season, the Packers ranked 16th among the NFL's 31 teams.

The Packers have been working with club seat holders regarding relocation and new pricing of their tickets. The new club seats and luxury boxes are expected to be ready in time for the start of the 2002 season. Season invoices are to be mailed to all ticketholders by the end of March.

"As far as the stadium renovation project is concerned, we are delighted with the progress that has been made to date. We are right on schedule, in part because of largely favorable weather, and very pleased with what we see emerging at the corner of Lombardi Avenue and South Oneida Street."
