SENATORS ANNOUNCE TICKET PRICES FOR NEW ARENA
Published March 1, 1995
The average price for Senators tickets will drop once the team moves into its new arena next January, the team announced yesterday. Ottawa fans will pay from C$15 to C$97 a ticket to see a game after the team moves from its current Civic Centre home to the 18,500-seat Palladium. While the high end tickets will be costlier at the new facility and the low-end tickets cheeper, average prices will drop. The average ticket price for seats in the new facility will be C$43.56, compared to the C$48.62 average fans will pay for next season's games in the 10,500-seat Civic Centre. This year, the Senators' average ticket price is C$46.20. Only 430 seats at the Palladium will be available for C$15; after that, the next lowest price will be C$23.99 a ticket. Senators' Owner Rod Bryden points out that the team's prices at the new facility are lower than 16 of the 26 NHL teams' prices this season. Bryden stressed that Senators tickets include a C$2 surcharge to repay the Ontario Government for building access to the new arena. Bryden: "Our objective is to deliver a wining NHL hockey team in a world-class facility, at a price our fans feel is fair and that they can afford" (Michael Prentice, OTTAWA CITIZEN, 3/1).
