The Boston Red Sox announced Monday ticket prices will remain the same for the 2015 season.
The club added that while theÂ average prices for all 81 home games will stay at the 2014 level, some adjustments have been made to the variable pricing structure that was introduced after the 2013 season. Additionally, the $9 standing room tickets for high school and college students will return in 2015.
âGiven the challenges we experienced on the field this year, and the steadfast support of Red Sox Nation through those challenges, we are holding the line overall,â Red Sox President/CEO Larry Lucchino said. âWe are adjusting some of the variable pricing categories to better correspond to demand and to improve the ability of families to visit Fenway Park.â
Half of the 64 games in which prices will change will go up and half will go down, according to the Red Sox, while tickets to 17 of the games willÂ remain unchanged.
âWe are grateful for the loyalty and sustained support of our fans, and we are determined to reward their faith with another competitive team that will play October Baseball,â Lucchino said.Â âMake no mistake, our commitment to winning, and our hunger for another World Series championship, are as strong as ever.
âOver the last two years, we will have dropped the prices, for example, of Infield Grandstand seats by $17 for certain games.Â That helps us improve the affordability and accessibility of Fenway Park for families and children. That improvement is important to us.â
Infield grandstand tickets that were $55 in 2013, fell to $43 on those 16 games in 2014, and in 2015, they will fall further to $38 on those 16 games.
The tickets to the 16 games in greatest demand and the 16 games in lowest demand will be adjusted by an average of $5.Â Bleachers and standing room prices will stay the same in those categories. Games most affected by the increase include Opening Day and Yankees games; games which will have the most dramatic decrease include most weeknights in the spring and fall.
