In an email to 2016 season ticket holders on Monday, the Buffalo Bills announced they would not be increasing ticket prices for the 2017 season. The team last raised prices in 2016 and 2014.
"On behalf of the entire Buffalo Bills organization, thank you for your valued support as a Season Ticket Member," says the email. “We recognize how fortunate we are to have the best fans in the NFL. We are pleased to announce that season ticket prices will remain flat for the 2017 season."
The last time the Bills hired a new head coach, they set a franchise record for season ticket sales thanks in part to the Pegulas’ purchase of the team and the excitement surrounding Rex Ryan. With the understated Sean McDermott now in the fold, it would be difficult to see the season ticket numbers reach such lofty heights unless the team makes a big move for a quarterback this offseason.
Buffalo’s season ticket prices remain among the lowest in the league. According to The Buffalo News, the average price of a regular seat for a Bills game was $68.18 in 2016, which ranked in the bottom five of the NFL.
