SEASON TIX FOR LAME-DUCK JETS NOT A HOT ITEM IN WINNIPEG
Published August 31, 1995
The Jets, almost certain to move out of Winnipeg after this season, have seen their season-ticket base drop from 5,700 to 4,200, according to the CANADIAN PRESS. The team hopes that attendance will not drop to dismal levels this season, and some experts say it won't. Sports psychologist Cal Botterill predicts season tickets will remain low, but response for certain games will be high (Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 8/31). In Winnipeg, Stevens Wild reports a heated mayoral race is generating questions whether the city should have abandoned the Jets effort earlier in order to save the taxpayers from funding an estimated C$20-$30M in team losses this year (WINNIPEG FREE PRESS, 8/31).
