The Jets announced Friday that most ticket prices will remain flat for 2013, but that a total of about 5,000 seats will see lower prices for season ticket holders on the 300 level and in club sections.

"After taking a look at the entire bowl, we decided to adjust certain prices to improve the value for fans, especially for season ticket holders," team president Neil Glat said in a story posted on the team's website.

The most dramatic price change resulted from a conversion of some Coaches Club seats to something called "Lower Prime Club," resulting in a drop in price from $700 to $255 per game. Some seats in the Coaches Club, which provides access to the all-you-can eat lounge underneath that section, have proven to be a tough sell since MetLife Stadium opened.

The majority of price-reduced seats for season ticket holders will come in the form of about 3,000 upper level seats whose cost will drop from $75 to $50.
