The spring pro football league announced ticket prices on Thursday for the regular season games of the New Jersey Generals and Pittsburgh Maulers, who will both play their home games starting in April at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium at the Hall of Fame Village in Canton.

Tickets start at $10 per game for end zone seats. Season ticket packages are as low as $30.

The Generals will play the Maulers at noon April 23 at Tom Benson. A rematch is scheduled for 1 p.m. June 17 at the Canton site.

Ticket prices were also announced for the other six franchises participating in the second season of the USFL, a follow-up to the original spring football startup of the 1980s. Canton is among four host stadiums for USFL games this year.

Last season, all USFL games were played at a single stadium in Birmingham, Alabama. Along with a return to Birmingham, the other two game sites this year are in Detroit and Memphis, Tennessee.

Season ticket packages for end zone tickets in Canton cost only $30 for access to all 11 USFL games, most involving the Pittsburgh Maulers and the New Jersey Generals.

Sideline tickets for individual games at Tom Benson cost $25; midfield seating is $40 per game.

Midfield season tickets for games in Canton cost $120 and sideline season tickets are $90.

Ticket prices are similar for games at the stadiums in Detroit, Alabama and Memphis.

Other USFL franchises are the Michigan Panthers, Houston Gamblers, Birmingham Stallions, New Orleans Breakers and Philadelphia Stars.

“The USFL is the best value in professional sports,” said Daryl Johnston, USFL executive vice president of football operations. “We know how important our USFL football family is, and we know our fans feel the same way about their families. That’s why it’s so important for the USFL to make it affordable for families and friends to be able to enjoy our exciting games together in a fun atmosphere at all four USFL host stadiums.”

Brett Zalaski, the USFL’s head of ticket sales and services, described Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium and the other sites, including Ford Field in Detroit (where the NFL’s Detroit Lions play), as “world-class venues.”

“Fans will have unlimited ticket flexibility to exchange them, transfer them, or sell them,” Zalaski said in a prepared statement. “It’s truly a fan-first offering that makes for a great experience.”
