DETROIT (WXYZ) - The Detroit Lions have instituted a variable pricing system for their tickets, raising ticket prices overall.
The variable pricing system means that prices for tickets will vary depending on the impact of the games. More important games, such as Thanksgiving or primetime game, will have higher prices than games that aren't considered as important.
The team said season ticket holders will see an increase of 8.2% to their overall ticket package, but will see a 70% decrease in tickets for the preseason games.
This increase will take the average ticket price per game to $83.36 a ticket, which is still under the $85 NFL average for season tickets.
The increase will take the Lions from 29th to no higher than 25th in average ticket price in the NFL.
The 2014 Detroit Lions home schedule has them facing the Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins and New York Giants.
