Falcons set 2014 price increase on suites, club seats

Even though the next NFL regular season has yet to begin, the Falcons already have set the price for suite and club seats for 2014.

The team received approval Tuesday from the Georgia World Congress Center Authority to raise the price of new club seats between 3 percent and 5 percent for 2014 while increasing the cost of club-seat renewals 3 percent.

A total of 56 suites — almost 50 percent of inventory — are up for renewal for 2014, said Jim Smith, the team’s chief marketing officer. More than 1,950 club seats and super-suite seats also will be available.

Prices for suites will rise 3 percent in 2014 while prices for new super suites or super-suite renewals also will increase 3 percent.

The Authority oversees operations of the Georgia Dome.

Smith said the Falcons set a record for season-ticket sales this year because they priced early, and the team wants to keep that momentum going.

“One of the things we learned this past year was the sooner we got a head start … is when we get the majority of our sales,” he said. “We were missing a great opportunity to connect with customers and give them the opportunity to plan their budgets further out if we approach them during the season.”
