Price hike could leave football fans in cold after '09

Increased prices planned by the Giants for the new stadium they are partnering to build has some fans worried about losing their season tickets.

The team is asking fans to pay thousands of dollars more for the right to buy season tickets at the stadium, which will also host New York Jets games and is scheduled to open in 2010.

The team recently sent out letters telling fans they will have to pay up to $20,000 for a season ticket as personal seat licenses are instituted.

Alan Moskin, 82, has been a season-ticket holder for the past 50 years. He attended his first Giants game in 1941 but says the 2009 season could be his last.

"It is going to be hard for me to get the money," he says.
