The Denver Nuggets today announced ticket prices for the 2008-09 season.    The Nuggets will continue to be near the middle of the NBA in average ticket price ($61.50), despite playing in a privately-funded arena with a capacity in the bottom half of the league.  This is just the 10th time the Nuggets have adjusted ticket prices since 1988 and over 500 seats remain unchanged.

“This price adjustment is needed to continue to provide a competitive product at a fair price in the ultra-tough Western Conference,” said Paul Andrews, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Kroenke Sports Enterprises.  “We will remain near the middle of the pack in the NBA and this will help us as we strive towards our goal of winning an NBA championship.”

The Nuggets are one of only six teams in the NBA to qualify for the playoffs in each of the last four seasons and have a roster featuring two NBA All-Star starters (Carmelo Anthony and Allen Iverson) and the reigning NBA Defensive Player of the Year (Marcus Camby).

One third of seats in the Pepsi Center will be priced at $22 or less, including the $10 seats which remained flat.  The Nuggets will also continue to offer popular ticket promotions such as Denver Post Family Nights (4 tickets, 4 Pepsis, 4 Digiorno’s Pizzas and a $10 ESPN Zone card for $59), Coors Light Guys Night Out (2 tickets, 2 Coors Light beers, 2 guys night out t-shirts) and Pepsi Youth Nights (kids 14-and-under free with a paid adult on select games) and Rocky’s Den (day of game seats for only $5 in this area).

Season ticket holders who renew will receive a price lock on their seats for the 2008 NBA Playoffs, from the First Round to the Conference Finals.  New season ticket buyers who purchase before April 1, 2008 will receive a great seat location and the price lock for the playoffs as well.
