Oklahoma City Thunder season ticket prices for 2009-2010 will remain the same, according to Brian Byrnes, the team’s vice president of tickets and services.
Fans in all sections have until April 10 to renew their season tickets. Details on fans wanting to change season ticket options, and the procedure for fans on the waiting list, will be made available in upcoming days. Byrnes said all season ticket holders will be notified of the 2009-10 season ticket policy within the next week. According to a story in the Sports Business Journal, only three of the NBA’s 30 teams will raise season-ticket prices for 2009-10. Nineteen teams are expected to remain the same. Seven teams are projected to decrease prices. One team has not yet decided on pricing. Ticket revenue generally accounts for up to 50 percent of a team’s annual budget. Boston and Phoenix, two teams with a waiting list like the Thunder, have announced they’ll keep the same price. The Indiana Pacers are reducing prices. Portland has announced it will increase prices next season.
