Lions freeze ticket prices

Take solace, Lions fans. At least you won't be paying more to see the worst team in the NFL next year.

Bob Raymond, vice president of business operations at Ford Field, said today the Lions will freeze ticket prices, significantly reduce the price of club seats and lower the cost of about 4,400 seats for the 2009 season. How much prices will go down and for what sections is still under consideration.

Raymond said the downturn in the economy and the Lions' 0-15 record were factors in the decision. The Lions had five blackouts in eight home games this year and had 10,500 unsold tickets for last week's home finale against New Orleans. Entering the year, they had sold out 48 straight games at Ford Field.

"We obviously took both factors into consideration," Raymond. "The economy being No. 1, but let's face it the team performance is also a factor in this. And our fans have made us aware of this and we have to address that."
