This is what he said......


"Let me say, in the process of building the new Arrowhead we are right now rescaling the ticket prices. Specific to the 2008 season, I can tell you there will be a tremendous number of people who will be pleased either because there will be no ticket price increase or an actual reduction in price."


“This is part of the plan we’ve had since we came up with the design. Before you ask, there will be no price increase in parking at all for 2008. We’ve tried to be receptive and if you go back and look at our history, when we have had an under performing year we have not raised ticket prices.”

So he didn't promise anything.

Heh. If you read that carefully, he says without saying it that for the non-tremendous number of unlucky people, their tickets are going up.

I can tell you that the "lower" upper level seats stayed the same.

They now call it Red Select, and tickets are $78.

Looks like the rest of the upper level was reduced in price.

Haha. Carl raises prices on people he knows he can snooker because they won't give up their seats.

I don't remember lower seats in the upper level being $83 either.

Meanwhile, the corners of the upper level that were empty all year went down to $44.

Gotta keep that place full.

They're not. They're $78.

The $83 figure is if you bought from the Box Office, which you can't readily do for those seats anyway.

So, a $3.50 increase per game, per ticket.

Kansas City Chiefs Announce Rescaled Ticket Pricing for 2008
Jan 04, 2008, 3:20:04 PM

Over 20,000 Seats Decrease in Price

The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Friday that a significant rescaling of Arrowhead stadium ticket prices will take place for the 2008 season. The new pricing structure includes a decrease in ticket prices for the majority of upper-level seating.

The Chiefs also announced a moderate increase in ticket prices for prime seating location, however, the average overall ticket price for the 2008 season will remain flat. There will be no increase in parking prices.

The most inexpensive seat in the stadium will be $39 per game when purchased as a season ticket, compared to $49 in 2007. The number of seats available in this price category will increase to nearly 5,000 seats, compared to last year’s 1,700 seats. Additionally, season ticket holders in the upper reserve area will notice a ticket decrease to $59 per game.

In total for 2008, over 20,000 seats at Arrowhead will go on sale for a lower price than last year. The Chiefs’ decision to build this new pricing model was in response to fan feedback, and sets the stage for the future in the New Arrowhead, which will be completed in 2010.

The Chiefs – as part of a program instituted last season – will continue to provide season ticket holders with more favorable pricing than fans who choose to buy single-game tickets. The team also formally announced several fan-friendly programs that will be in force for the 2008 season. For seating chart and pricing see www.kcchiefs.com/tickets/seating.

Pre-Sale Opportunities
There are plenty of other perks that come with being a season ticket holder. In 2008, those advantages include pre-sale opportunities for the second annual MU/KU Border Showdown on November 29th, the Big 12 Championship Game on December 6th, and the return of the Northwest Missouri State vs. Pittsburg State Fall Classic on October 4th.

Fans Give Back
The Kansas City Chiefs and Ticketmaster are teaming up with Chiefs fans to give back to the community through the donation of tickets to the team’s home games. By donating pre-purchased Chiefs tickets or by purchasing them for the purpose of donating them, ticket holders have an opportunity to pass them along to underprivileged youth from Big Brothers/Big Sisters or to a member of our Armed Forces. The specific charity will issue a receipt for the value of the tickets for tax purposes. For those who receive donated tickets, the Chiefs and the stadium’s concessionaires – including Centerplate and Levy Restaurants – will provide a complimentary small soda and hot dog. Find out more at www.kcchiefs.com/fansgiveback.

Chiefs TicketExchange
Season Ticket Holders who can’t make the game no longer have to lose out on their investment. Ticketmaster and the Chiefs announced a new service that allows fans to purchase premium Chiefs tickets directly from season ticket holders. Buying at Chiefs TicketExchange is secure and easy. Find out more at www.kcchiefs.com/ticketexchange.

Fans First
The Chiefs have created a formal customer relations department for 2008 and beyond. Headed by Director of Customer Relations Anita Bailey, this department will “audit” the game day experience with secret shopping programs, supervise regular communication with season ticket holders, conduct fan surveys and run the newly created “fans first” booths to handle game day needs for Chiefs fans. Find out more at www.kcchiefs.com/arrowhead/policies.

Season Ticket Holder 2008 “Perfect Attendance” Award
The Chiefs will honor all season ticket holders who utilize their tickets for all 2008 home games with a Perfect Attendance Award. The award will be in the form of a commemorative ball cap remembering Chiefs founder Lamar Hunt. The cap will not be sold in fan stands and will be a limited edition available only to season ticket holders in 2008.

Renovation Kick-off
This year also marks the opening days of the transition to the New Arrowhead, which by 2010 will offer new features and amenities that will be available to everyone, no matter where they sit. Wide-open concourses on all three levels will allow fans quicker and easier access to concessions and seating areas. Plans call for twice as many concession areas. More space means more food, beverage, and merchandise choices. A Hall of Honor worthy of the team’s history will paint a complete picture of the franchise’s proud past for all who visit the New Arrowhead. The new game day experience also will include an upgrade of the in-stadium sound and video systems. Also, a significant increase in the number of restrooms will get fans back to their seats and enjoying the game as quickly as possible. Find out more at www.newarrowhead.com.

Up 10 bucks a seat to 94 dollars a pop.

And of course, the silent cocksucker, Clark Hunt, passed off on this increase.


So, we'll spend 50 million less than the Panthers, win fewer games, and then increase prices.

I guess they figured they couldn't break their cock off in us 10 times this year, and would have to upcharge us for 9 games

I'm on record as saying the third year would be a defining point of Herm's stay here. While some could technically argue that it's his first year of having complete control, I at least know we're gonna see young players ACTUALLY PLAY.

My understanding is that we're paying for 10 no matter what.

If for some reason the schedule is released and we've lost a home game, the organization will credit our account.

Keep in mind, the schedule won't be released until after we've paid 3/4 of our invoice.
