Giants players have gotten more expensive. Giants tickets have not.
The team notified season-ticket holders earlier this month via letter and email that the cost to see the games at MetLife Stadium will not go up for 2016. The Giants have not made the playoffs in four straight seasons and have had three straight losing records.
A Giants spokesman said 2015 was the only season in which ticket prices were raised across the board since the team moved into MetLife Stadium in 2010.
The letter, signed by co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch, reads in part: “We are looking forward to the 2016 season, the first for head coach Ben McAdoo. He has assembled a quality coaching staff, and our players are eager to get to work when the offseason program commences on April 11.”
The Giants this month have spent what could wind up being over $200 million in free-agency contracts to overhaul their defense. They re-signed defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul and added defensive end Olivier Vernon, defensive tackle Damon Harrison, cornerback Janoris Jenkins and linebacker Keenan Robinson.
Besides division games against Dallas, Washington and Philadelphia, the 2016 home slate for the Giants will include games against Chicago, Detroit, New Orleans, Baltimore and Cincinnati. The dates and times of those games are expected to be announced next month. There will also be two home preseason games.
The cost of parking for Giants games will also remain unchanged from last year at $30 per event.
