Will it help attendance?

NFL: San Diego Chargers at Cleveland Browns Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

After dropping 15 games, the Cleveland Browns have dropped ticket prices for the 2017 season.

The club announced the decision yesterday, revealing that prices will be slashed for 40% of the team’s season tickets.

The move is aimed at the average middle to lower class fan who sits in the upper deck. Ninety percent of seats in the upper bowl will see a decrease in price of $5-15, depending on the game. The upper sections of the stadium rarely filled up more than halfway in the latter stages of the season.

Nearly all of the seats in the lower bowl will remain the same price, with only some premium seats in various clubs in the stadium declining in price.

“We are incredibly grateful for the passion and support we receive from our fans and felt it was appropriate to adjust our ticket pricing at this time,” vice president of communications Peter John-Baptiste stated in the team’s release. “We have decreased a significant percentage of ticket prices because it was the right thing to do for our fans.”

The Browns will likely rank 31st or 32nd in ticket price in the league, matching the team’s performance in recent years.

If you’re a diehard fan and looking to get in on the ground level cheap, now is the time, I suppose.
