The Blackhawks will raise ticket prices next season.

The Chicago Blackhawks are raising ticket prices for next season. The prices increases go throughout the arena, and average an uptick of eight percent. The cheapest 300-level seats move from $24 to $28, the most expensive seats in the United Center (Private Bank Platinum Seats) now move from $320 to $335.

The Chicago Tribune adds more context:

The 8 percent average increase pales in comparison to the 2008 jump of an average of 16 percent — some price tiers as much as 85 percent—which was the first time the organization had raised prices since the 1997-98 season. In 2010, the increase clocked in at an average of 20 percent and this season it rose 8 percent. Similar to this season, the Hawks say season plans for 2012-13 receive a discount up to 48 percent from face prices of single-game tickets.
