NHL Panthers Forgo Parking Fees, Incorporate Into Tix Prices

The NHL Panthers have given up their “controversial plan to charge pedestrians to walk onto [BankAtlantic Center] property,” though it will now “cost more to attend a game because the price of parking will be factored into the price of a single-game ticket,” according to George Richards of the MIAMI HERALD. There will continue to be a charge for parking for non-hockey events at the arena. During the ’05-06 season, the team charged $15 per car to park at BankAtlantic Center for Panthers games, and in March it told season-ticket holders it was planning “to charge pedestrians $5 to walk onto arena property from nearby Sawgrass Mills.” The Panthers instead released a new pricing plan for single-game tickets, which will be offered “in two tiers, with premium games costing more than second-tier games.” Single-game tickets for “A” games will increase by $12 this season, and “B” games will go up by $7. A $17 ticket in the 400 level will be offered for all games, which is “$3 less than the cheapest advance ticket offered last year.” The $8 tickets released on game days are expected to “be offered as well,” with a yet-to-be-determined price (MIAMI HERALD, 7/18).
