Clippers to raise season-ticket prices

For the first time in six years the Clippers will increase the cost of season tickets for the 2012-13 NBA season.

Next year's season tickets will increase in cost by an average of 15 percent and more than half -- over 9,000 seats -- will increase by 11 percent or less.

“We studied this pricing strategy thoroughly, and we have developed a plan mindful of its impact on our fan base, while enabling us to compete at the NBA's highest level,” Clippers’ President Andy Roeser said in a statement, adding, "In the midst of a franchise-record sellout streak, we think the best is yet to come.”

Clippers season-ticket sales have been at capacity for the entire 2011-12 season for the first time in team history.

Season-ticket holders were shipped renewal packs earlier this week, including information for purchasing potential Clippers playoff tickets at the end of this season.
