Red Sox Will Raise 2019 Ticket Prices By 2.5% After Winning Championship

It's probably not a big shock to anyone, but the Red Sox will be raising their ticket prices an average of 2.5% in 2019. After winning their fourth World Series Championship in 15 years, the NOG (New Ownership Group) probably feels pretty comfortable with the hike. Regular season home game prices will range from $21.14 to $161.14—compared with a $19.81 to $155 range last season. The team is also introducing a new "Diamond" tier of six "desirable" games that will feature price hikes that average 10 percent. To be fair, these hikes are pretty much in-line with past increases—2014: 4.8%; 2015: Freeze; 2016: 1.4%; 2017: 2.9%; 2018: 2.5%. Still, the cost for a family of four to go to just one Red Sox game in 2019 could cost upwards of $1,000—when you include seats, food and drink, parking and souvenirs.
