CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns are raising ticket prices for some season tickets in 2019, according to a news release.

This is the second time in 11 years that the team is raising prices. They were raised before the 2008 and 2015 seasons.

“After thoroughly evaluating stadium pricing, attendance and various factors across the league, we decided to adjust ticket pricing in certain sections of FirstEnergy Stadium in 2019,' Senior Vice President of Communications Peter John-Baptiste stated in the release. "We greatly appreciate the passion and support from Browns season ticket members and fans, and when we considered implementing a new pricing structure, one of our most important priorities was ensuring all fans have affordable options to attend home games. We also expect that our average ticket price will remain one of the four-lowest in the league following an approximately seven percent increase this year."

The majority of price increases are impacting the lower bowl, upper prime, end zone mezzanine and select premium club seats. They are increasing those sections based on season ticket percentages, attendance rates, demand, sight lines and other factors.

Prices for 43 percent of Browns season tickets will not change or will decrease in 2019.

More than 68 percent of the seats in the upper bowl will remain the same. Seats in the four sections closest to the 50-yard line on each side of the stadium will increase by $5.

According to the Browns, the team is expected to rank in the bottom four in average per game ticket price.

Last season, the Browns finished with their best record in the AFC North since 2002.
