Elsewhere in the District, the Nationals charged an average of $30.63 this past season, giving them the seventh-highest ticket prices in major league baseball even after decreasing the average ticket price by 7 percent. But the team last month announced it would not raise ticket prices on season tickets for 2010 and said Monday that new season-ticket holders who buy tickets before the end of this year will receive as much as $7 worth of free food or merchandise for each game. The Nationals also boast the least expensive ticket of all major teams in Washington, with some upper deck seats selling for $5.
The NFL’s Redskins, meanwhile, entered this season with the 10th-highest ticket prices in football, with an average ticket costing $79.13, about $5 more than the league average.
