Chargers: Most season ticket prices won't increase for 2013 season

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego Chargers officials announced Friday season ticket prices will either remain unchanged or will be reduced for two-thirds of the seats at Qualcomm Stadium next season in an effort to drive up attendance and avoid local television blackouts.

The Chargers were 7-9 in 2012. Declining attendance at Qualcomm Stadium resulted in four games being blacked out on Southern California television screens because they failed to sellout by the 72 hours before kickoff deadline, per National Football League policy.

Season tickets for about 45,000 stadium seats will be sold at an unchanged or reduced price. Nearly 10,000 of those seats are in the View level and will be available for $39 to $50 per game, according to team officials.

However, season ticket prices for seats in prime areas were being raised $10 to $20 per game, depending on location, in line with similar seats in NFL stadiums nationwide, team officials said.

"We believe this new structure makes sense for all areas of the stadium, giving us a better opportunity to fill the stadium while also helping the Chargers remain a viable and competitive team," Chargers Senior Director of Ticket Sales and Services Todd Poulsen said.

General season tickets next season will range from $39 to $110 per game, compared with single-game prices between $52 to $130, which could save season ticket holders up to $200, officials said.

The Chargers are scheduled to face the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Cincinnati Bengals, Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs at home next season.
