In all, the Mets are figuring on a 500,000 increase in attendance. Using the same factors from above, and adding an extra 4% for ticket price increases, it would appear as though the Mets could reasonably expected to earn another $21 million in ticket sales. Adding in increased money for sponsorships and money for concessions — even after adjusting for revenue sharing — it’s easy to see how the Mets can be expected to gain $25 million next season. The Mets front office, Sandy Alderson and his staff especially, have done a very good job rebuilding and making the Mets competitive, and at least for the time-being the Mets owners do deserve some credit for putting their increased revenues back on the field.
