Beginning July 1, a new fee will be implemented to all professional sports tickets sold in the state.

Oklahomans can expect this hike to affect prices on tickets for teams like the Oklahoma City Thunder, Energy FC, and Dodgers, as well as the Tulsa Oilers, Roughnecks FC, and Drillers.

House Bill 2361 was signed into law earlier this year to help fill the state's almost $900 million dollar budget shortfall. This fee is projected to generate around $2.6 million dollars a year.

A $1 fee will be added to tickets priced less than $50, and a $2 fee will be added to tickets above $50.
