The New England Patriots are going to institute the variable pricing plan for their seats for the 2014 season. The Detroit Lions were the first team to announce the implementation of the seating system this coming season and the Patriots will join them in the approach.

In the new system, the seat prices will vary based on the demand of the game. The preseason tickets will likely be cheaper and games against the Jacksonville Jaguars or other bad teams will likely come at a cheaper rate as well. Games against big name teams that draw a huge crowd will cost a little more.

The pricing makes sense. People don’t want to pay full prices for preseason games and some people don’t want to watch games against teams that are terrible. If the demand is high, then the prices will be higher. It just makes sense.

Season ticket holders will not be affected in the variable price changes. Their ticket package will still cost the same.

Do you all like the new system that teams are putting in place?
