Supply, meet demand: for the third straight year the Mets are going to reduce season ticket prices. This in the face of attendance dropping off seven percent in 2011:
Next year, no full 81-game season-ticket holder will pay more than this year, and more than 80 percent of them will have their ticket prices fall at least 5 percent. Tickets in about half the ballpark will be $25.
Also, the Mets, like so many other teams have already done, are going begin a dynamic pricing program in which marquee games are priced higher than bad games. No word on how they’ll account for the fact that the Mets are going to be playing in all of the games.
