Sure seems like ticket prices will jump at any new location (if there is one). Go to Aldershot and on-street parking options drop tremendously as well. What $ increase in your normal game day costs are you prepared to accept?
I’ve given a comparison to help. Note: THIS POLL IS FOR SINGLE SEAT BUYERS.

Yellow/Purple (no alc) $28
By my guess, the average game day experience will increase atleast 30% of 2011 prices.....$30 for parking, $10 beers, $9 hot dogs, sushi plates-not to mention basic seat increases. Centrefield tickets will probably top the $85 mark and who could blame them? A brand spanking shiny new stadium with parking!
I don't know of any theatres, stadiums that allow you to bring in food or water. I can't think of any hospitals that will provide free parking. So this that in mind, it's all about the business of selling you entertainment. I have eliminated drinking at the games several years ago becuase I drive an hour to attend the games. My license is more important than getting a buzz on at the game. As far a prices - I beleive the CFL is has great value for the entertainment dollar. I have 2 seats in Box J - for years. I still consider the trip and all the food and solf drinks part of the game. Good thing I'm not a Leaf fan who would like to be able to watch the game from a reasonable seating location.
