Rays cut prices on Red Sox games

11.14.12 at 9:19 am ET

Apparently, the Red Sox brand took a hit, at least in one corner of the country.

The Tampa Bay Rays scale ticket prices based on anticipated demand. They assign four pricing categories to games — from highest to lowest, Diamond, Platinum, Gold and Silver. According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, eight of the nine Red Sox games at the Tropicana Dome next year have been reclassified from the two most expensive classifications of ticket prices (Diamond and Platinum) to a less expensive category.

In 2012, Red Sox games in Tampa Bay averaged 19,123 fans per game — just below the Rays’ average of 19,255 fans per home game. In 2011, Sox games at the Tropicana Dome featured an average attendance of 23,538, a considerable bump above the season-long average of 18,879 fans per game in Tampa Bay.
