Packers raising ticket prices for 2012 season

GREEN BAY (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers are raising prices for the 2012 season, announcing an increase of between $3 and $5 per ticket.

Tickets in Lambeau Field's end-zone sections will increase by $3, to $72 per game. Tickets from the 20-yard line to the end zone will increase by $4 to $80, and tickets between the 20s will increase by $5 to $92. Suite tickets also will increase by $5 to $92.

Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy says ticket revenue is an important part of the team's ability to remain competitive with the rest of the NFL.

Murphy also said the Lambeau Field expansion project will be done in time for the 2013 season. It includes a new sound system, two new video boards and 6,700 additional seats.
