So the Mariners sent out a release today saying that season ticket prices will stay the same. After last year’s fiasco where season ticket prices went up and season ticket holders weren’t notified. It was a sizable public relations snafu for the Mariners in an offseason full of them, culminating with the Howard Lincoln’s letter to the Seattle City Council.

So this year, the season ticket prices aren’t going up. There is still the variable ticket pricing for when so-called premium teams like the Yankees, Red Sox and Blue Jays (Canada) and most interleague teams.  Of course that’s a whole other issue and rant for another time. Because of that, partial season ticket plans such as Weekend, Business, Half-Season and 16-Game will decrease or increase slightly, based on the games included in the plan. Partial season ticket plan holders will continue to receive discounts of up to 20% off the cost of single game tickets.

From the press release …

Season Ticket Plans and Prices at a Glance

Under “variable” pricing for season tickets, games are divided into four categories based on several factors including opponent, day of the week, month of season and special event. The 2014 schedule, which was released earlier this week by the Mariners, is divided into the following variable pricing categories:

  • Single (eight games)
  • Double (25 games)
  • Triple (39 games)
  • Home Run (nine games)
  • Full Season Plans (All 81 Home Games)
  • No change in the total plan price for 2014 Full Season ticket holders.
  • Discounts of 19%-33% off the cost of single game tickets.

Weekend Plans (Friday-Sunday Games plus Opening Night – 40 Games)

Because fewer higher value Triple and Home Run games fall on weekends during the 2014 season, prices will have decreases ranging from $17 (-2%) to as much as $57 (-3.4%) per plan.

  • Discounts of 5%-20% off the cost of single game tickets.
  • Half Season Plans (Every Other Home Game – 40 Games)
  • Depending on games included in the plan, the prices of each plan will either decrease up to $18 (-0.9%) or increase up to $13 (+0.7%).
  • Discounts of 5%-20% off the cost of single game tickets.

Business Plans (Monday-Thursday Games – 41 Games)

Because more Triple and Home Run games fall on weekday games during the 2014 season, Business Plans will have increases ranging from $17 (+2.1%) to as much as $57 per plan (+3.5%).

  • Discounts from 5%-20% off the cost of single game tickets.
  • Partial season ticket holders have options available to switch to other plans that better fit their schedules or budgets while still maintaining their season ticket holder priority status.

Mariners season ticket holders enjoy a variety of exclusive benefits in addition to discounts off single game ticket prices. Other benefits include:
