PREDATORS' LEIPOLD SAYS TEAM HAS MET ALL LEAGUE REQUIREMENTS
Published April 2, 1998
Predators Owner Craig Leipold said the team has sold over 500,000 game-day tickets for next season and that it would reach the luxury suite and club seat sale requirement, set by the NHL, by yesterday's midnight deadline, according to Jeff Legwold of the Nashville TENNESSEAN. The Predator's had to sell 75% of the arena's club seats and luxury suites, and they sold 51 of the 66 single suites available and 1,379 of the 1,839 club seats. The team has also sold out all of the advertising space on the dasher boards around the rink. Leipold added that the NHL had already completed 90% of its audit of the team's sales figures and other sponsorship deals last week (Jeff Legwold, Nashville TENNESSEAN, 4/1).
