For Wild fans, success will have a price.

The NHL team this season advanced to the playoffs for the first time since 2003, falling to Anaheim in five games in the first round. On Friday, the Wild announced its 2007-08 season ticket prices, which will include increases of more than 10 percent in all lower- and upper-level sections. Club-level ticket prices will not change.

Lower-level tickets will range from $82 on the sides (up $8 from 2006-07), $71 in the corners (up $7) and $60 on the ends (up $6).

In the upper level, tickets will be $35 on the sides (up $5) and $16 on the ends (up $3.50).

Club-level prices are frozen through the 2008-09 season at $85 and $75.

In a news release, the Wild said it has 16,500 season ticket holders and an additional 7,500 on a waiting list for season tickets. People on the waiting list file $200 per-seat deposits, and season ticket holders will receive renewal information next week. Single-game ticket prices will be announced later.

The Wild has announced sellouts for all 274 home games in its history, averaging 18,543 per game at Xcel Energy Center, which has an official capacity of 18,064.
