The Rangers also announced that dynamic ticket pricing will be utilized in all individual seating categories for both non-Premier and Premier games in 2014. In partnership with Qcue, the leading provider of demand-based pricing software for live entertainment events, the Rangers will use Qcue's software analysis to set and adjust ticket prices higher or lower for each game in real-time based on market demand and factors such as pitching matchups, team performance, opponent, weather, and day of week. The club introduced dynamic ticket pricing in the Upper Reserved and Batters Eye Club seating categories in 2013.
More than half of the 30 Major League teams have implemented different versions of demand-based pricing in the last several years with a number of clubs utilizing the system for its entire seating inventory. Qcue, based in Austin, Texas, works with a number of MLB, NBA, and NHL teams on demand-based pricing. Dynamic ticket pricing will apply for all tickets except Children's tickets in the Upper Reserved and Grandstand Reserved categories.
For 2014, the club has reduced the individual gate price from 2013 on approximately 94% of the seats at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington with over 34,000 seats having a price decrease of between 4 and 19 percent. The Rangers have also decreased the number of Premier Games from 36 in 2013 to 28 in 2014.
