Following the lead of several other professional teams, the Lakers announced today that they will not raise the price of tickets for next season. “With the current state of the economy, we feel that increasing ticket prices would add to the financial burden that most families and individuals are suffering at this time,” said Jeanie Buss, the Lakers’ executive vice president of business operations and daughter of team owner Jerry Buss.
“We are determined not only to continue fielding a team that enjoys a high level of success, but also to keeping our games affordable for our loyal fans, who are the heart and soul of the team,” she continued in a statement released by the team. “Although we are freezing prices for the upcoming season, rest assured that we will continue to do whatever is necessary to bring another NBA championship back to Los Angeles.”
Prices will remain frozen at $90, $115, $155, $220 and $260 for seats in the lower bowl of Staples Center and $10, $35 and $45 for seats in the upper deck.
