Flyers VP Marketing and & Communication Shawn Tilger said that the 352 seats the Flyers have identified for the program are “some of the last to sell." The seats will cost $66, up from $47.50 last season without food and drink, and will cover the cost of hot dogs, popcorn, chips and salsa and soda. The 76ers are selling 932 all-you-can-eat upper deck seats in the venue’s north end, priced at $27 for season-ticket holders, $28 for groups, and $31 for individuals. All seats in the section for Nuggets-76ers on March 19, which features the return of G Allen Iverson, will be $30 (SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, 9/3 issue).
