GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers are increasing ticket prices.
Price increases range from $2 to $5 depending on the location in Lambeau Field. End-zone seats increase $2 to $74. Tickets from the 20-yard line to the end zone increase $5 to $85. Seats between the 20-yard lines will go up $5 to $97.
Prices for the new South End seats are $82 and $89.
Packers president Mark Murphy says the increases keep ticket prices about average for the NFL.
Murphy says the revenue is important to keeping the Packers competitive in the league. Also, Murphy says the team wants to be fair to visiting teams in terms of shared revenue. One-third of all ticket revenue goes to the visiting team.
Invoices are being sent to season-ticket holders this week.
In November 2006, nearly 60 percent of Wisconsin voters supported an amendment banning gay marriage.
Before Wisconsin lawmakers could consider a bill to allow gay marriage, voters would have to pass an amendment undoing the 2006 amendment language. But before that the Legislature would have to pass the amendment in two consecutive sessions.
