Devils Launch Online Campaign To Keep Rangers Fans Out Of Prudential Center
Published May 16, 2012
GETTING A LIFT: In N.Y., Ken Belson noted the Devils "may be on shaky ice financially, but they are getting a lift from their deep playoff run." The extra income "should give the team a lift in the coming months as it continues to restructure its debt and search for investors" to buy the 47% stake in the team controlled by Devils co-Owner Michael Gilfillan. Fans who attend playoff games "don’t necessarily spend more than fans during the regular season." But the team "makes more from tickets, concessions and merchandise sales because Prudential Center in Newark almost always sells out for playoff games" (NYTIMES.com, 5/10).
