There will be no price increase on Orioles season-ticket plans for next season, according to a club source.
Season-ticket holders will receive emails today informing them of ticket opportunities for next month’s FanFest event and also telling them that season-ticket invoices will be mailed out next week.
Last offseason, the team sent the invoices in February. The delay was in part because the team waited on its decision to raise ticket prices until the 11th hour of an offseason that included record spending, as the team retained big-ticket free agents Chris Davis and Darren O’Day.
Season-ticket holders saw an average price increase of $5 per game last season, with the increase ranging from $3 to $10 per ticket based on the plan and selected games.
Despite the Orioles contending for a playoff spot they eventually earned, attendance slumped last season. The team's average home attendance (26,819) was down nearly nine percent from 2015 and ranked 20th in the league.
The Orioles will again offer plans of 13, 29 and 81 games. The club has not yet finalized details on single-game tickets.
Season-ticket holders receive complimentary tickets to FanFest, which will be held Jan. 28 at the Baltimore Convention Center. FanFest tickets go on sale to the general public today and are $12 for adults and $6 for children ages 3-14 and seniors 60 or over. Children ages 2 and under are free.
Autograph session tickets will go on sale Jan. 18.
