Panthers One of a Few Teams Altering Their Season Ticket Plans

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that the Panthers are one team that is altering their season ticket plans to account for the current NFL lockout.

The New York Giants and Jets, Carolina Panthers and Buffalo Bills made changes to their season-ticket plans this year to account for the lockout, with the Giants taking the biggest step by not requiring renewals until the labor stoppage ends. According to a survey of all 32 teams by The Associated Press, 17 teams are not changing ticket prices, nine are raising them, four are decreasing them and two are both raising and decreasing, depending on seat location. May 1 normally is the due date for full payment by Giants season-ticket holders. Not this year, barring a settlement of the dispute between owners and players. “We felt comfortable with it, and we shouldn’t be singled out,” co-owner John Mara said. “Each team has its own individual circumstances. We’ve asked an awful lot out of our fans in the last few years over the stadium.” The Giants and Jets shared the $1.6 billion cost of New Meadowlands Stadium, which opened last season.
