The San Francisco 49ers announced season ticket and single game prices for the 2008 football season. This year, the team will expand on its tiered price structure by adding new $71 and $98 price options, giving fans a total of six choices ranging from $25 to $98. Seats for single games will range from $35 to $113, and group tickets will remain at the 2007 price of $35 per-ticket. The team's prices will remain among the lowest in the National Football League.
As part of the process of expanding from four to six price options, seats in a number of sections will be reorganized in different price categories. As a result, the average season ticket price will increase from $64 to $71. Team-by-team pricing for the 2008 season is not yet available, but the 49ers new average season ticket price is expected to rank among the six lowest in the NFL. The team's new average price is still $13 below the $84 League-wide average ticket price during the 2007 season.
"In today's world of sports and entertainment, there is no better value for your investment than NFL Football," said Andy Dolich, Chief Operating Officer of the 49ers. "We are committed to offering our fans a variety of price options to fit their budgets. Despite operating in one of the most expensive markets in the NFL, our average ticket price will still be more affordable than the League average."
The 2008 season promises to be exciting for fans, with new offensive coordinator Mike Martz joining head coach Mike Nolan and a talented team led by star running back Frank Gore and Associated Press Defensive Rookie of the Year Patrick Willis. Fans can catch the games live as the 49ers battle the New England Patriots, Washington Redskins, Detroit Lions, New York Jets, Philadelphia Eagles, and NFC West rivals, the Arizona Cardinals, St. Louis Rams and Seattle Seahawks.
