Cheapest Nets Tickets Rise 67%?

Atlantic Yards Reports notes that the price of the cheapest seats will be rising next year from $15 up to $25, and $20 seats will go for $30.

The site’s Norman Oder went on:

Remember, for years arena backers and builders promised at least 2,000 $15 seats “for” Brooklyn. In May 2004, Borough President Marty Markowitz, told the New York City Council, “It must be enjoyed by Brooklyn’s working families.”

“We have 2,000 seats priced at 15 dollars and under,” Brett Yormark, the Nets/arena CEO, told RealGM 6/15/12. “It’s been our goal from day one to have affordable seating and pricing for anyone that wants to experience Brooklyn Nets basketball.”

Oder did add, “Nets tickets are a bargain compared to Knicks tickets at Madison Square Garden.”
