Season ticket prices have been standardized and an adjustment has been made to the Annual Seat Contribution (ASC), formerly seat options, by section. Season ticket prices have been lowered in almost every section in the stadium to a flat rate of $189 per seat. This means that the adjustment to the ASC amount may afford season ticket holders the opportunity to realize a larger tax deduction on their overall ticket purchase. Fans are encouraged to consult their tax advisor.

Fans will see price decreases in 13 sections in the stadium, ranging from $40 to $120 savings per seat. Pricing in six sections remains unchanged while 16 sections will see a modest $10 increase per seat. Four sections now have split pricing for lower and upper rows, resulting in an increase for the lower rows but a decrease for the upper rows.
