The Mets announced today that they have lowered the ticket prices for 2011 by an average of 14 percent from this past year. Season and ticket plan holders will receive an extra 10 percent discount. However, the cheapest ticket will be $12, as opposed to $11 in 2010.
It’s a good thing, too, as the Mets’ performance has not been worth the price of the tickets, especially the more expensive ones. The Mets’ home attendance in 2010 was 2.55 million people, an average of 32,401 per game. That’s down from 3.15 million, an average of 38,941 per game, in 2009. The Wilpons are no doubt hoping lowering the ticket prices will get more people in the gates.
Below is the official release from the Mets with the breakdown of what is going to be cheaper, as well as the brochure in .pdf format of the season ticket holder renewal options, 2011 game schedule and individual game ticket prices.
