After failing to draw 2 million or more fans to U.S. Cellular Field this season – and after six straight years of declining attendance – the White Sox are taking action.
We’ll have more details in tomorrow’s paper, but the Sox are slashing ticket prices for most season ticket holders in 2013. As for single game tickets next season, most prices have yet to be announced.
Here are some highlights for season ticket packages:
-More than 87 percent of all full season tickets for the 2013 season are either dropping in price or staying the same. The Sox say more than 54 percent of the full season tickets are dropping an average of 26 percent.
-Full season tickets will be available for as low as $810 per seat and split season plans for as low as $297 per seat, both in upper reserved.
-As for single tickets, corner seats in the lower deck will be available for $20 per game and upper deck corner seats will be available for $7 all season (excluding only Opening Day and the two Cubs games in May).
There are nearly 5,000 lower and upper corner seats at the Cell.
-Parking is going to be $20 next season, down from $25 and $23.
-The White Sox will announce pricing for 7- and 14-game ticket plans later this off-season.
