GRIZZLIES TRY TO RE-UP FANS BEFORE NBA GOES INTO HIBERNATION
Published June 4, 1998
The Grizzlies "are holding the line" on the cost of renewed and new full or partial season-ticket packages, but "there's a catch," according to a report in the VANCOUVER SUN. In order to buy at last year's prices and "avoid" a C$1- and C$2-per game increases in price which will also affect single game tickets, fans "must commit before" July 3, which is "just two days" after the NBA's "expected lockout" would begin. After that date, prices in six out of seven ticket levels will rise by either C$1 or C$2 a game. Grizzlies officials said that they "are uncertain" about what impact a lockout would have on sales, but Kevin Gass, the team's VP/Communications, said the verbal response to renewal notices has been "very positive." Gass, on a possible lockout: "[T]here's never been a missed game in the NBA due to a labor situation. We're going to assume optimistically that it won't happen" (VANCOUVER SUN, 6/4).
