Claiming the move will help the team fall in line with what other NFL teams are doing, the San Francisco 49ers have increased ticket prices for close to half of the 70,000-plus seats in Candlestick Park for next season, a few by more than three-times the 2009 price. The cost of those tickets, which are for fewer than 100 premium seats, will jump from $71 per ticket to $295, the San Jose Mercury News reports. Some other premium tickets are rising by about 50 percent. The team has shown some promise on the field but largely has been mediocre in recent years, and it has lowered or froze prices for several thousand seats for next season.
