Celtics jack up tix prices

May 22, 1997

The Celtics yesterday revealed part of their financing plan for Rick Pitino's $ 7 million salary, announcing an average 6.2 percent increase in ticket prices.

Owner Paul Gaston said at Pitino's press conference that he'd be leaving the $ 10 tickets alone but would look at the other fees charged to watch the C's. What that look yielded was an increase scaled more toward the higher-end seats.

The $ 125 front-row tickets went up 25 percent to $ 150, while the former $ 70 and $ 60 seats underwent 10 percent hikes. Some of the $ 50 tickets also went up 10 percent, while others stayed the same.

Season tickets go on sale today, with renewals to be mailed this week.
