Lions cut ticket prices for second straight season

The Detroit Lions are reducing some season-ticket prices for the second straight year.

Ticket packages for the 2010 season go on sale Wednesday, and the Lions said they will lower season prices for about 19,000 seats at Ford Field after ranking 31st out of 32 teams in NFL attendance for 2009.

The reductions range from about $80 per season ticket for about 13,000 seats in the 100- and 200-level sections to as much as $140 for an estimated 2,900 seats in the 300-level upper seating sections. About 3,000 club seats also will have lower prices, The Detroit News reported.

Prices for "all-you-can-eat" seats will remain unchanged.

The team made similar changes for about 8,000 seats at Ford Field last fall, but economic conditions and a 2-14 record on the heels of an 0-16 season contributed to an average attendance of 49,395 fans.
