Oh, make no mistake, the Packers are still raising ticket prices.

But by adopting a tiered system which segregates worthless preseason games from regular season games people actually want to see, they’re at least recognizing the law of supply and demand.

According to Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Packers price hike for this year is bigger for the regular season, while preseason games are significantly cheaper.

Preseason game tickets will now be between $45 and $62. Regular-season tickets are between $95 and $122. Last year, all tickets used to be between $80 and $105. The average price increase taken in total is 5 percent.

Recognizing that no one really wants to see the preseason games is probably smart, and the cut-rate prices might entice someone to show up at the stadium and enjoy some officially licensed sausage and beer, which probably isn’t going to be any cheaper in August than it will be in December.
