SENATORS TICKET POLICY A HIT WITH CORPORATE CLIENTS
Published March 29, 1995
Controversy erupted yesterday over the initial sale for Senators' tickets for seats in the new Palladium when the team admitted the existence of a corporate client list that will get the chance to buy ahead of many long time season-ticket holders. Senators Senior VP Brian Ashe acknowledged the two lists, but he said the corporate list would be merged with the main list of fans who pledged $25 "long before Ottawa was awarded" an NHL team. Starting today, the Senators are treating the main list and corporate list "equally," serving one from each, until the corporate list of about 300 customers is finished. Ashe said they tried to use "the fairest approach," but noted the team "depends heavily" on corporate clients who buy ads and Palladium Club memberships (Michael Prentice, OTTAWA CITIZEN, 3/29).
