I posted this on the business board's STH thread (numbers are approximate based on numbers of rows per section):
Quote:
Flyers going up about 12 percent in lower level, and 15 percent in upper level.
Max increase in lower level is 20 percent for center ice. Max increase in upper level is 87 percent for part of Row 12.
Upper level will now have a different price for every row. First two rows going up an average of 25 percent. Cheap seats (last 4 rows on ends) going up an average of 74 percent.
At least it was under this:

Knicks season tickets will jump an average 49 percent and the Rangers’ will go up by 23 percent.
“We hope there’s no sticker shock,” said Scott O’Neil, the president of MSG Sports. “We think it’s fair.”
A 23 percent increase to see a middling Rags team is much worse than what Flyers fans are facing. I'm not happy about the increases, but Flyers fans are not alone in seeing princes jump ... a lot.
