The Patriots will not be raising ticket prices in 2009.
The team sent its renewal forms to season-ticket holders this week, and is keeping prices at the same level as they were in 2008. In the letter to season-ticket holders, chairman/CEO Robert Kraft and team president Jonathan Kraft wrote:
"On behalf of the entire New England Patriots organization, we want you to know how much we all appreciate the support you have given this franchise over the years. Our season ticket holders continue to provide our foundation and you should take great pride in all that the team has accomplished in recent years. Without the dedicated support of our fans, we could not have built the championship tradition that we now celebrate in New England. ...
"In 2008, our family enjoyed its 15th season of ownership. While we are proud of the many championships that we have celebrated together, it is most gratifying to know that we have been able to sustain our success since 1994. Since then, we have won more Super Bowl championships, more conference titles and more overall games than any other team in the NFL. In addition, our fans have celebrated 11 consecutive home playoff victories since 1994, a stark contrast from the 0-1 home playoff record in the first 34 years of the franchise. Even though the 2008 season did not end the way we had all hoped, we certainly felt that the team improved each week and was playing its best at the end of the season."
Last season, ticket prices ranged from $49 for Standing Room to $169 for Lowel Level Sideline seats. Other prices -- which again, will remain unchanged for 2009 -- are as follows:
Lower Level Corner/End Zone and Mezzanine Level Corner/End Zone: $117
Upper Level Sideline and Upper Level Corner (Rows 1-7): $89
Upper Level Corner (Rows 8-26): $65
