Ticket prices for individual Washington Mystics games will increase next season while costs of full and partial season ticket plans will remain the same.

Seats in the blue section of the lower bowl and club level of MCI Center that ranged from $10 to $25 last season for individual games will be $12 to $37.50 next season, team spokeswoman Julie Demeo said yesterday. Season ticket holders will pay $10 to $25 a game, the same price as last season, for seats in those sections.

Seats in the upper deck for individual games as well as season ticket packages remain unchanged at $8. In addition, the price of about 150 courtside seats--available only to season ticket holders--will remain the same, $65 a game. Season ticket packages consist of 16 regular season games.

The Mystics have about 6,500 season ticket holders, most of whom received renewal notices this week from Washington Sports and Entertainment Chairman Abe Pollin. In his letter, Pollin wrote: "We value your loyalty. That's why only our plan holders will be eligible for last season's prices."

The Mystics, who were 12-20 last season, averaged 15,306 fans a game, leading the WNBA in attendance for the second consecutive year.
