Michigan football program announces 'moderate' raise in ticket prices for 2012 season
The Michigan football program announced in a news release Friday what it calls a "moderate" increase in ticket prices for the 2012 season.
The six-game home slate will go for $390, an average of $65 per game. That's an increase of $5 per game from 2011.
Single-game options are available as well. Michigan designates the Oct. 20 game against Michigan State as premium and will charge $95. Matchups against Air Force, Massachusetts, Illinois, Northwestern and Iowa will cost $75.
Last year, marquee games against Notre Dame, Nebraska and Ohio State were $85, and everything else $70.
“We benchmarked our ticket prices against our peers and other comparable football venues and we have concluded that these prices will bring us closer to current industry standards,” Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon said in the release.
Season-ticket information will be sent out in early April. Partial ticket packages and individual tickets hit the market in July.
Michigan previously revealed student season ticket prices also will rise. They now cost $32.50 per game, plus a one-time fee of $10. That's a $2.50 bump per game from last season.
