The Red Sox announced today they were keeping 81.5 percent of all Fenway Park ticket prices the same for 2007, raising the rates only in premium seating areas.

According to the Red Sox, a total of 30,155 tickets per game will be priced the same as 2006. The range includes pavilion box ($90), loge box ($85), right field roof box ($45), right field roof seats ($45), infield grandstand ($45), outfield grandstand ($27), bleachers ($23), upper bleachers ($12), and general standing room ($20). The prices will increase in the following areas: dugout seats, the EMC Club, the State Street Pavilion, and field box seats. The club will also keep its special offer of $7 for tickets for active military personnel.

The pricing of other seating categories, such as the Green Monster seats and right field roof deck tables, will be determined in the future.

“We want fans and families to know that we hear you,” Red Sox president Larry Lucchino said in a statement released to the media. “We are determined to keep Fenway Park accessible to the regular fans, the moms and dads, the grandparents and kids that look forward to continuing traditions that are generations long.

“Our challenge is to protect those lower prices for fans and families on a tight budget while still improving revenue. We still must compete with those with much deeper pockets, and we still must continue to make improvements to Fenway Park.

“We are fortunate that our loyal fans have demonstrated that there is a market for the high-end seats, and those fans are helping us keep tickets as low as $12."

The Red Sox have sold out 307 straight games at Fenway Park, the second-longest streak in major league history.
