Rams slightly raising season-ticket prices

Rams season-ticket holders received an e-mail notice this week informing them of a slight increase in season-ticket prices for the 2013 season. As an example of the price increase, a seat that cost $82 a game last season now costs $88.

There is a discount program for those who renew by Feb. 22, with an increase of only $2 per game for two-thirds of the Edward Jones Dome for those who pay early. Coming off a 2-14 season in 2011, there was no season-ticket price increase in 2012, and ticket prices were reduced in some end zone and upper deck seats. (Jim Thomas)
