EXPOS FANS ANGRY OVER NEXT YEAR'S SEASON-TICKET POLICY
Published October 25, 1994
Despite the uncertainty concerning the start of the '95 season, the Expos have commenced their ticket marketing campaign for next season. The team recently sent letters to season-ticket holders in which they warned subscribers to "pay half the cost of a season ticket by November 15" in order to "avoid unpleasant surprises." Many fans felt the letter implied that if their deposit was not in by November 15, then their ticket could be taken away and given to someone else looking to upgrade. Mitch Melnick, a sports talk-show host on CIQC Radio in Montreal said that area fans are upset: "There's no way they should treat people like that" (Danny Gallagher, Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 10/25). TORONTO: Blue Jays Stadium and Ticket Operations Dir George Holm said that the Blue Jays plan to take a "wait-and-see attitude" before marketing '95 season tickets. Holm: "We see no point in putting tickets on sale." Holm added that if an agreement is not met by December 1, that the team will probably decide then whether to proceed with a ticket campaign or continue to wait (GLOBE & MAIL, 10/25).
