PORTLAND -- The Portland Timbers announced Tuesday the team will not increase season ticket prices for the 2013 season.

Despite our affordable ticket prices and significant demand, the club will not be raising season ticket prices for the second straight year, Timbers president Merritt Paulson said. This season has been frustrating for all of us and our decision to once again keep prices steady is in the best interest of our long-term relationship with our fans.

Season ticket prices remained unchanged for 80 percent of tickets following the team s inaugural 2011 MLS season.

The Timbers have sold out each of their regular-season home games since joining the MLS and have more than 7,500 fans on their season ticket waiting list. The team started with a base of 14,750 season tickets and added 2,000 more seats after the 2011 season.

According to the team, 20-game ticket packages for 2013 will start as low as $4.95 per game for Value Terrace seats ($99 per season), and nearly 60 percent of Timbers season tickets are available for $22 or less per game.
