The Tennessee Titans have increased ticket prices across the board for the first time in three seasons after their improvement on the field in 2016.
Different percentages of price increases were applied to the ticket prices, depending upon where the seats were located. Two years ago, a portion of the team’s season ticketholders experienced a price increase, but the last across-the-board increase came after the 2013 season.
Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk posted a letter on the team’s website and also sent the letter by mail to the team’s season ticketholders along with their 2017 invoice.
In addressing the increase, the owner’s letter said:
“You will note in the renewal information you received that there will be an increase in the price of your season tickets this season. We have not presented a price increase the past two years and many of you have not seen an increase in three years. However, I realize that enduring an increase at any time is not easy. I trust that you can see the progress we have made as a franchise and recognize the commitment we are making to succeed with you. Over the past year, I have had the pleasure to meet many of you and I can feel your passion for our team. We are working to build a consistent playoff contender to represent you, Nashville, the state of Tennessee and the Mid-South region.”
In regards to the increase, for instances, tickets in Section 102 jumped $50 to $780 for the season, a 6.85 percent increase. It marked the first time for an increase in that section since the end of the 2013 season.
