In a letter that will reach fans next week, the Ravens are notifying season-ticket holders that the prices of their seats will increase for the 2007 season.

Club seats will increase by $25 per game ($250 for the season for the eight regular-season games and two preseason games), lower-level seats by $20 and upper-level seats by $10.

The average ticket will cost $82.14, up from last season's price of $66.14.

In the letter, the Ravens say they need their average ticket price to be in the top half of the NFL to stay competitive. Last season, the Ravens ranked 18th out of 32 teams.

In explaining the increase, the team said it spent $25 million over the salary cap to retain players such as Todd Heap, Ed Reed and Bart Scott in addition to signing Steve McNair, Trevor Pryce, Derrick Mason and Samari Rolle.

Ticket prices next season will range from $45 to $110 for upper- and lower-level seats, and $155 to $335 for club level.

The Ravens, who typically raise their ticket prices every two years, announced that they will keep the figures the same for the 2008 season.
