OILERS MEET NHL MANDATE, WILL RECEIVE SMALL MARKET SUBSIDY
Published June 1, 1998
The NHL Oilers said yesterday that they had sold 13,121 season tickets, enabling them to meet the 13,000-ticket requirement mandated by the NHL in order to qualify for the US$2.5M small-market subsidy, according to Andrew Chung of the EDMONTON JOURNAL. This was the "third consecutive year [that] season-ticket sales have come down to the wire" (EDMONTON JOURNAL, 6/1). Oilers VP/Business Administration Doug Piper said that the team surpassed the requirement "without the help of a large corporation buying up a block of seats." Piper: "We did see quite a few newcomers and a lot of people sharing" (Jerry Ward, EDMONTON SUN, 6/1).
