The Red Sox are raising ticket prices for the third straight year. 

The team announced an average ticket price hike of 2.5 percent for 2018, which is slightly above the average annual of 1.7 percent per year since 2009. Overall, the club has upped ticket prices in six of the last 10 years.

Prices for tickets in 10 sections, including the Field Box, Bud Deck Barstools, and bleachers, will cost between $1 to $5 extra next season. The $5 hikes are in the upper bleachers ($20-$25), right field terrace ($55-$60) and Bud Deck Barstool ($80-$85). 

The Red Sox are also using a tier pricing system, meaning tickets will be more expensive for certain marquee contests and dates. Top-tier dates, such as Opening Day, summer weekends and Yankees games, will cost more than the average ticket.

In addition, the Red Sox will offer special reduced pricing for students, clergy, veterans, and active duty members of the military. High school and college students can also purchase tickets for $9.
