11/16/09: Columbus Crew Already Up in 2010 Season Ticket Renewals, Same With Rest of MLS

According to Street & Smith's Sports Business Journal, The Columbus Crew was one of the few teams to report an increase in ticket prices for 2010. The club increased season-ticket packages 6 percent on average, or $1 a ticket. Despite that, the team is ahead in renewals compared with 2009 largely due to its on-field success and an enhanced customer service department, President Mark McCullers said.

In total, the renewals so far look like this, according to SBJ:
Chicago Fire 50%
Chivas USA 50%
Colorado Rapids 70%
Columbus Crew 50%
D.C. United 50%
FC Dallas NA
Houston Dynamo 50%
Kansas City Wizards NA
Los Angeles Galaxy 60%
New England Revolution 30%
New York Red Bulls 85%
Philadelphia Union **
Real Salt Lake 50%
San Jose Earthquakes NA
Seattle Sounders FC 90%
Toronto FC 95%

My thoughts: I still haven't renewed. If my ticket reps are reading I'm still a college graduate student. So might want to throw me back down to the college student rate, and we'll talk. :-)


  1. I used to get the 9-pack--it's no longer available, now the half-season (2/3 season) pack includes 10 games (out of 15 regular season games). That and getting tickets for my soon 3-year old made it a bit more expensive.

  2. I am probably going to renew now that moreno is gone
