    Well, if you consider that it's Chivas, sure. But otherwise... cheap, haha.

    Note 5: According to TFC fans on Twitter, new season tickets for TFC this season cost $342 Canadian. Most season ticket holders renewed at 2007 levels. Those prices are less than $200 Canadian.

    So, we actually have the lowest season ticket price in a supporters section? With the exchange rate they're using, and with the 19 games in the package, it works out to basically US$9 per game.

    ^ In fairness though, for YEARS we were unjustly over-paying for season tickets. Think of this season's price reduction as some sort of financial kharma.

    They should do a concessions comparison as well.

    Beers in Montreal and Columbus were way cheaper then at BMO... food was to IIRC

    Cool

    I'm happy to pay for my season ticket cost if we find a way to win our first home game. . . . . .
    that said . . . .

    34 games league games
    17 home games
    average 1 goal per home game
    $190 season ticket
    that's $11.18 CAD each goal, if they score in every home game, that I will celebrate in the stands with you lot.

    THAT'S A BLOODY GOOD DEAL

    sucks to be DC United fans. Dam. They got screwed, shit team last year.
    New England, probably one of the worst stadiums to see a game, they need to move, over priced for what it is in new England. Team was ok tho last year.
    Portland has best atmosphere in the league, they got a sick stadium and a good team. Its worth the money.
    Chivas no fans, shit team, I wouldn't pay that even tho it is the lowest in the league.
    Salt Lake is a good deal, good team, decent stadium and fans.

    Toronto FC we got a good deal this year. But we started at $200, went up to $300 and then to over $400 at one point, and that was following year after year of never making the playoffs, and not only making the playoffs we also set so many league records like worst start to a season, fewest goals, longest goalless streak. I mean we were brutal. Yet prices just kept going up and up. We are due low prices!

    ^ I know the phrase has gotten tossed around these forums a lot, but TFC truly came close to killing that golden goose didn't they?

    And what blows me away the most is how incredibly unapologetic they were about it. The team was absolute shit and we'd have Tom Anselmi, Paul Beirne and their cohorts basically just shrugging their shoulders and saying if we don't want to pay those high prices, someone else would (btw: there was never anyone else). To this day it makes my blood boil just thinking of these arrogant directors and executives who thought all they needed to do was put eleven guys in red shirts on the field and that would satisfy everyone.

    TFC is giving us a good deal this season. For a change. But I know deep in my heart that the minute we start winning on any consistent basis, they are jacking those ticket prices up just like all the times before. Call me a cynic, but as long as MLSE runs this club, we're never going to have ticket prices which accurately reflect the value of entertainment on offer.

    According to the article Chivas STHs get 2 free jerseys just for renewing. Must be nice not to have to support the sponsor (which I can't do) in addition to the team to get the perks.
