One game will be added to the Seattle Sounders season-ticket package and prices are going up an average of about 4 percent, according to a series of tweets from the Alliance Council.
1) 2014 ST prices going up an overall average of just 4%. Some are more, some (cheapest Supporter section for example) just 50 cents.— Alliance Council (@AllianceCouncil) September 6, 2013
2) 2014 package will be 18 games. (17 MLS)+ (1 friendly, SAME PRICE as league game, probably a smaller club- ie, not Barca/ManU type)— Alliance Council (@AllianceCouncil) September 6, 2013
While this is a bit of a divergence from years past when the team either opted to go with a big-name friendly (2009, 2011 and 2012) or avoid the extra game all together (this year). But it's also a far cry from 2010, when the team scheduled three friendlies against less marquee opponents (Boca Juniors, Celtic and CD Guadalajara). There was no word as to whether or not season-ticket holders would be allowed to opt out of the friendly they were in 2011 and 2012.
The pricing structure that has inaugural season ticket holders paying less than those that bought them later will also remain.
