Flyers Season Ticket Prices Are Increasing

The Flyers are a better team now than they were a few months ago. The Wells Fargo Center is also undergoing a $250 million renovation.

Does that warrant a ticket price increase?

I guess it does. That new 4k kinetic scoreboard ain’t gonna pay for itself!

Scanning social media, it looks like there were various levels of increase across the board:

Via a season ticket holder, these are the new STH prices included in a Flyers email. Here’s the lower level, after the jump:

And here are the new prices for the upper level:

I’d need to see the previous year’s prices for an accurate comparison here. If you have ’em, send ’em to kevin@crossingbroad.com and I’ll add it to the story.

For what it’s worth, the Flyers are re-branding their season ticket experience as something called “Inside Edge,” which is described as such:

“Inside Edge is the reimagined Flyers season ticket membership for the 2019-2020 season. With exclusive access, discounts, guarantees, and experiences, Flyers season ticket members get to reap the benefits meant only for insiders.”

Some notes on what that includes:

  • “Starting with the 2019-20 season, full season Inside Edge members will receive 20% off concessions, retail, parking, and Xfinity Live! purchases.”
  • “Members will receive the best seats, prices, and playoff tickets. Members will also have access to member-only concessions lanes at Wells Fargo Center and exclusive concert and special event presales.”
  • “For the first time, members will also be able to exchange their tickets online when they can’t make a game. Add this benefit to a dedicated service rep, one-of-a-kind member gifts, and fan-friendly payment options.”
  • “Best of all, members will have unparalleled access to the team you love through a series of carefully-crafted events that get up close with players, coaches, front office staff and Gritty!”

Gritty. He might be worth the price of admission alone.

Did your ticket prices go up? Holla.

Edit:

Couple of emails to the inbox. I’ve got one STH telling me their tickets went from “$8,815 per season to $11,190 or $260 for a pair per game.” They mentioned that the timing is rough because they just picked up a partial Phillies plan (aka the Bryce Harper effect).

Another person says their tickets were $100 each this year, but are increasing to $130 next season. They “cancelled their tickets instantly.”

  1. Higher prices to see the muckers and grinders like Scotty Laughton, Michael Raffl and our newest addition…Ryan Hartman!

  2. Behind the net…shoot 2X going from $100 to $130 per game. That’s $1,290 per season ticket 30% I don’t give a damn about inside edge or whatever marketing sham of new benefits.

    1. Same thing here. $60 more per game for 2 seats?!?! Family got the tickets originally in 1969. Were first row at Spectrum but got bumped back when the appropriately named FU Center opened….. Now stuck selling tickets on StubHub for $40 a ticket on Monday or Tuesday night games…Needless to say, making the call this week to cancel….

      1. Same thing with me. Games I can’t go to I couldn’t make my $200 back. Now to try and recoup an extra $60? That’s impossible. We have season tickets to watch the games not worry about all those other benefits. What a kick in the nuts.

  3. The Flyers’ new VP of (revenue) did the study to see how much prices could be increased. And here is the reswult. Next!

  4. My son is 9 and has been to multiple Sixers and Phillies games…even a Eagles preseason. But he hasn’t seen a hockey game because $150 bucks for 2 nose-bleed tickets, parking, and food is crazy. Like Smithers said: “its a policy that ensures a healthy mix of the rich and the ignorant”

    1. As if the Phillies and Sixers games are reasonable LOLOLOL go on third party sight a day or two before a game and you will get those same tickets for a third of the price …that’s why they have the third party sights, supply and demand sets the price. If you were that interested in taking him, you’d do a little research.

    2. I took six people to a Flyers game two Thursdays ago against LA …second level, row six …cost a total of $122 for all six seats!!

  5. Sixers tickets went up $1.500 as well and they only won one playoffs series in 8 years. Embide missed more games than he has played in for his career and you still have a very unstable coaching staff that will never win a damn thing.

  6. My price did not change. However, the new seats suck. They are incredibly narrow and have no padding.

  7. Don’t get the whole season ticket thing unless you resell most at a profit. Who has time to attend every single home game.

  8. I only go to gsmes for the flyers for freeeeeee. They are the 4 out of 4 for 4 . Lol lol lol lol. Hockey is gay.

  9. Scram the scam! Sixers Sales people will tell you how great they are and they havent even beaten a great team in years. When they do beat a good team that teams star player is out for that game. If you do not opt in for the following season for season tickets they give you a higher rate for playoffs tickets the year that you paid for the season tickets. They will try and sell you on Meek Mill ringing the liberty bell. They are the biggest scam Organization in all sports. Go on Stub Hub and get a ticket they get a percentage of that ticket as well. A 80 ticket goes for 35 too 55 on a weeknight. If they dont sell tickets they have they put them on Hub and hurts the season ticket holder paying 80 a ticket. Brett Brown face of the organization at all times and lies to the Philly fanbase at all times. They say they have a waiting list for season tickets but i highly doubt they do. Seats are empty in parts of the Farfo on some games.

  10. They get their biggest tax break in decades and this is what they do. Its always some talentless hack making these decisions, someone who hasnt had a hard days work in over 30 years. Well fuck you, some of us actually earn our money and value it.

  11. People have been bitching about ticket prices since stormin Norman Braman. Ain’t never gonna change friends

  12. COME SEE ALL THE NEW RENOVATIONS…..JUST IGNORE ALL THE EMPTY SEATS AROUND YOU! FLYERS GAMES HAVEN’T BEEN SOLD OUT IN YEARS. THAT IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE BASED ON (3) FACTORS: 1) TEAM PERFORMANCE; 2) SUPPLY & DEMAND; 3) TICKET PRICE.
    1) CLEARLY THE TEAM HAS UNDERPERFORMED AND IS NOT GOING TO MAKE THE PLAYOFFS (IN A LEAGUE WHERE 16 TEAMS DO!)
    2) THE FLYERS HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN TAKING BACK SEATS FROM SEASON TICKET HOLDERS IN THE PAST 24 HOURS, SAYING THEY REOSLD TOO MANY GAMES ON STUBHUB
    3) THE FLYERS HAVE INCREASED PRICES PRETTY MUCH ACROSS THE BORAD, FOR THE 2ND STRAIGHT SEASON, AND AT A GREATER INCREASE THAN ANY SEASON IN TEAM HISTORY
    SO, TAKE A TEAM THAT ALREADY HAS TROUBLE FILLING THE BUILDING….ADD IN ANOTHER DISAPPOINTING SEASON….PLUS SIGNIFICANTLY RAISING TICKET PRICES…..PLUS TAKING BACK SEATS FROM SOME FANS STILL WILLING TO BUY THEM…..
    LOOKS LIKE THE FRONT OFFICE IS PERFORMING EVEN WORSE THAN THE PLAYERS!
    LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I GIVE YOU VALERIE CAMILLO (WHO COULDN’T EVEN GET NATIONALS GAMES TO CONSISTENTLY SELLOUT WHEN THEY WERE WINNING DIVISIONS AND MAKING THE PLAYOFFS). GREAT HIRE, DAVE SCOTT!

  13. 51st year ticket holder. 8th row blue line. They sent me an invoice with an 88% increase (from $127 to $240). Includes Center Club Access. I can’t make many games and can only get about 60% value on Stub Hub. I’m sure no-one on Stub Hub will pay the additional for Center Club Access. I have no interest in it either. I hope they will let me relocate. Haven’t been able to connect with the ticket office yet – they are too busy.

    1. Tom, I was told they will let you relocated. But with all the increases across the board sounds like you are going to be paying what you are now but in a less desirable location.

  14. Many folks in the Center Six that got hit with the 100% price increase won’t see any value in that elite club. At their choosing, many of them will be relocated to other seats. The 30% end rink increase is strategic in that it essentially forces the end rink STH folks out of the way (upstairs or out altogether) in order to accommodate those who have no interest in that stupid new elite club. All the while they’ll fill the elite club and generate an additional $10 Million in ticket revenue. I didn’t always agree with Ed but I doubt he would have ever done this to the long time faithful fans.

    1. Agreed. But how/why do the Flyers expect to be able to generate that much revenue by doubling the ticket cost in locations that they cannot even sellout at the current pricing, especially given that most people seem to not be in favor of the all-inclusive club?
