In an attempt to save the franchise, the Syracuse Chiefs have announced a cut in ticket prices next season in an effort to attract more customers to NBT Stadium.

The Chiefs ended their recent season a half million dollars in the hole and many long time leaders of the team were forced out.

The Chiefs will drop their general admission ticket price to five dollars, that's a three dollar cut. Children and seniors will be able to see a game for just four dollars and members of the military will get in the door for free.

Management at the team say they have conducted a survey to see what other teams charge that are of similar size to Syracuse and that's how they came up with the new price structure.

The price for reserved seating and skyboxes will also drop under the new plan. Chiefs General Manager Jason Smorol says the team wants to entice families to come to the ballpark next season and there was a perception that tickets prices were too high.
