ROMAN SENATE-STYLE TREATMENT FOR SENATORS FANS
Published March 28, 1995
The Senators will begin taking season ticket orders today for their new Palladium, set to open in mid-season of '96. The team promotion lends to an atmosphere "more like an upscale bank than a ticket office," according to Michael Prentice in this morning's OTTAWA CITIZEN. Fans, by appointment only, will go through the lounge, "viewing seating plans and models of the Palladium to help" them decide where to sit in the new venue. They will then meet with a ticket representative in a private room to discuss purchasing plans. For the first few days, 40 fans per day will be invited to buy tickets based on their priority registration number. The team now has about 8,000 season-ticket holders, but hopes to have more than 13,000 for the 18,500-seat arena (Michael Prentice, OTTAWA CITIZEN, 3/28). LYNX SALES SLOW: The baseball strike seems to have hurt the Ottawa Lynx, the Expos Triple-A club. The team has sold only about 3,500 season tickets, compared with 4,800 for last season (OTTAWA CITIZEN, 3/28).
