Houston Texans Will Not Increase Ticket Prices For 2014 Season

If you're looking for a silver lining to a 2-14 season, I suppose this qualifies.

2-14 leads to a status quo in at least one area.

Your Houston Texans went 2-14 in 2013, losing fourteen (14!) games in a row after starting out 2-0. Considering the high hopes Texans fans had for the team after consecutive AFC South titles, that's beyond abysmal. Never let it be said that 2013 was a total loss for Texans fans, however, as the organization has (smartly) decided not to raise ticket prices in 2014. From John McClain:

Despite hiring coach Bill O’Brien and having the first pick in each round of the May draft, the Texans elected not to increase ticket prices for the first time since 2011 when they were coming off a 6-10 season.

The Texans, who have sold out every game at Reliant Stadium since their inception in 2002, will have an average ticket price of $86.39 for the second consecutive season. Last year, that average price ranked 12th in the NFL.

The Texans could have easily raised ticket prices, and fans would have still paid to see them. Such is the demand for NFL football. Yet it's still nice to see that the team realizes a price increase after a 2-14 campaign wouldn't have been the best way to play it. Kudos, McNair & Co.
