Tennessee Titans increase ticket prices in 2009

(The Tennessean) -- Coming off a second consecutive playoff season, the Titans are raising ticket prices for the third straight year, a team official confirmed Friday.

The increase ranges from $2 to $3, making season tickets between $43 and $83 per game. It's the eighth time in the last 10 years the team has raised prices.

The average season-ticket price is expected to remain among the lowest in the NFL. Last season the Titans ranked 29th out of 32 teams. Not all teams have set their prices for 2009.

Upper-deck and end zone seats will increase by $2, while sideline seats will increase by $3.

"After a lot of deliberation we decided on a very modest increase, knowing the economic climate that is facing our season ticket holders,'' said Don MacLachlan, executive vice president of administration and facilities for the Titans. "We have always had some of the lowest prices in the NFL and wanted to make sure we stayed in the very lowest pricing echelon of the league.''

Season ticket invoices will be mailed out in mid-February. The NFL schedule will be announced in April. Single-game tickets, which will go on sale in early July, will have similar price increases.

The Titans have sold out every game (104) since moving into the downtown stadium in 1999.
