EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -- The Los Angeles Lakers won't raise ticket prices next season.
Jeanie Buss, the team's executive vice president of business operations, said Monday that the team wants to keep prices affordable in a struggling economy.
"We feel that increasing ticket prices for the upcoming season would add to the financial burden that most families and individuals are suffering at this time," she said. "We are determined not only to continue fielding a team that enjoys a high level of success on the court, but also to keeping our games affordable for our loyal fans, who are the heart and soul of the team."
Ticket prices will remain at $90, $115, $155, $220 and $260 for lower-bowl seats and $10, $35 and $45 for upper-bowl seats at Staples Center next season.
