RAPTORS NEW TICKET CAMPAIGN IN TIP TOP SHAPE
Published December 6, 1994
The Raptors announced a season-ticket sales campaign in conjunction with the TORONTO SUN and Tip Top Tailors. Raptors VP Isiah Thomas called it an "aggressive package that will make Raptors tickets affordable for everybody." The Hoops Club package makes 500-level SkyDome season tickets available for $225, including a team cap and invitations to a practice and clinic. Fans can take a coupon from THE SUN and purchase tickets at one of 66 Tip Top Tailors outlets in southern Ontario for only $200. The team hopes to sell 2,000 of the seats in the next few weeks to reach their NBA-mandated quota of 12,500 season-ticket sales by December 31. The team is presently 4,500 sales short of its goal (Rob Malich, TORONTO SUN, 12/6). OPEN HOUSE TONIGHT: The Raptors will hold an open house at SkyDome today, hosted by Thomas. The facility will be configured for basketball and the Raptors games. Fans can see the layout of the court, "size up their seats, and buy them." Buyers become eligible for a trip to the All-Star game in Phoenix (Rob Malich, TORONTO SUN, 12/6).
