In Sale Of Non-Premium Tickets
STARS: The DALLAS BUSINESS JOURNAL's Katherine Cromer Brock reports the Stars "may be on pace to best the organization's record of new season ticket sales." The Stars are seeing a 92% season-ticket renewal rate, and the team has sold "more than 1,000 new season seats for the upcoming season, and are on pace to best the all-time record of 1,600 new season seats, set in the summer of 2005." Stars President Jeff Cogen when he assumed the position in November "announced a 37[%] reduction in the cost of 4,000 upper-level seat season tickets" for the '08-09 season. Cogen: "We reduced the price to try and create new fans, and obviously it ensured renewals." Cogen said that he "expects season ticket sales to be a thousand higher than last year's 12,500 mark" (DALLAS BUSINESS JOURNAL, 8/1 issue).
NOTES: Pacers co-Owner Herb Simon said that season-ticket sales for the team are "worse than they were at this point last year." The Pacers last season averaged 12,221 fans per game, worst in the NBA (INDIANAPOLIS STAR, 8/6)....The AFL Philadelphia Soul next season "will roll out a $59 season ticket plan" in honor of the team's 59-56 win over the San Jose SabreCats in Arena Bowl XXII (PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 8/7).
