Preds Raising Ticket Prices, Introducing Variable Pricing
Published September 6, 2006
BRUINS: In Boston, Kevin Paul Dupont reported Bruins season-ticket holders found that the “front-row loge seats took a big bump, from $90 to $150 per game,” up 66.7%. The same seats will be sold for $175 per game at the box office, and the “cost for a pair of seats along the glass for a full-season” is $12,610. The Bruins will “freeze the $150 price for three seasons, and ticket-holders also will receive memberships at Legends, the Vault’s third-floor bar/eatery” (BOSTON GLOBE, 9/3). In this week’s SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, Terry Lefton reports the Bruins this week are launching a new campaign, via SME Branding, N.Y., with the tag “Hub of Hockey.” The campaign, which aims at “branding and selling tickets,” includes print, radio, outdoor, online and TV (SBJ, 9/4 issue).
