Instead of seeing black and gold for the first time since the end of the Olympic break, Bruins fans were seeing red after team owner Jeremy Jacobs announced to season ticket-holders the prices for the 2014-15 season.
During the 2013-14 season, the price of loge seat tickets ranged from $70 to $132 per game and balcony seats went from $32 to $91 per game. According to a release from the team, loge seats will now cost between $88 and $145 next season and balcony seats will cost between $45 and $98 per game.
Bruins fans took to Twitter to show their anger with the price hikes.
People think Bruins tickets are expensive now? Jacobs just increased season ticket holders prices, some by as much as $13 a game #Crook

It’s a very sad realization that I probably will be priced out of my Bruins season tickets within the next 5 years if the team stays good.

Bruins seeing as my tickets went from about 1900 to 2655 for one 8th row balcony seat next season..my acceptance of “dips” in effort is NIL.
