Timbers announce no increases in Season Ticket prices for 2013 Season

PORTLAND, Ore. — The Portland Timbers today announced that there will be no pricing increases for any of the club’s season ticket plans for the 2013 MLS season. Today’s announcement marks the second consecutive year the team has not raised prices for the vast majority of season tickets at JELD-WEN Field, as the club did not raise prices on more than 80 percent of season tickets prior to its second MLS season in 2012.

Paulson talks about the decision

"Despite our affordable ticket prices and significant demand, the club will not be raising season ticket prices for the second straight year,” Timbers president Merritt Paulson said. “This season has been frustrating for all of us and our decision to once again keep prices steady is in the best interest of our long-term relationship with our fans."

The Timbers, who have a season ticket base of 14,750 seats, expanded their season ticket availability by more than 2,000 seats to meet increased demand for the 2012 season and realized a renewal rate of more than 97 percent leading into their second MLS season. Currently, the Timbers, who have sold out each of their 30 regular-season home games since joining MLS in 2011, have more than 7,500 fans on their Season Ticket Waiting List.

The Timbers average season ticket price is comparably in the lower half of MLS season ticket prices.

The team once again will feature a 20-game ticket package for 2013, and season tickets again will start as low as $4.95 per game for Value Terrace seats ($99 per season). Nearly 60 percent of Timbers season tickets are available for $22 or less per game while almost 40 percent of seats are priced $20 or less.
