Bills introduce variable pricing for home games
In the National Football League, every single week is important to the outcome of a season. As far as pricing and the ability to sell games, sometimes not every contest is created equally to the adoring fan base. Through that logical reasoning, the Buffalo Bills have introduced the savvy idea to use a tiered system for individual game tickets in 2014.
The eight home contests are split up into ‘gold,’ ‘silver,’ and ‘bronze’ games, having the cost coincide with the differing levels of distinction for the trio of metals.
The ‘gold’ level games only feature two contests, the home opener on September 14 against Miami, and the October 12 tilt against New England. Individual game tickets for those contests range from $68 to $130.
Four games have been designated on the ‘silver’ level, featuring three contests against teams that fans can’t see in Buffalo all too often and one against a division rival. Those games include September 21 against San Diego, October 19 versus Minnesota, November 23 against the New York Jets and the final home game of the season, December 14 versus Green Bay. The individual ticket prices for ‘silver’ games range from $58 to $112.
November 9 against Kansas City and November 30 versus Cleveland will be the lone ‘bronze’ games offered to fans. Those contests will be available for anywhere from $48 to $99 for individual seats.
