Lakers Raise Ticket Prices
The Lakers said Monday they had increased prices in eight of their nine season-ticket pricing plans, an average of 4% to 5% overall.
Courtside seats were increased from $2,100 a game to $2,200, a 4.8% change.
Seats in six lower-level sections between the baskets -- 101, 102, 110, 111, 112 and 119 -- were raised from $210 to $220 a game, also a 4.8% increase.
The league-mandated $10 seats were the only ticket prices left unchanged. The Lakers offer 500 such seats at Staples Center, the league minimum.
The Lakers were 45-37 during the regular season and lost to the Phoenix Suns in a first-round playoff series that went the full seven games.
Last season, the Lakers increased ticket prices in two of the nine pricing plans: Courtside seats and the lower-level sections between the baskets were each raised 5%.
Season-ticket holders renewed at a 92% rate last year, down 5% from the previous year.
