Sabres' Season-Ticket Renewal Rate Drops To Still-Solid 97% Heading Into Next Season
The Sabres have "had a small drop in season ticket renewals" for the '13-14 season, according to Mike Harrington of the BUFFALO NEWS. The team yesterday announced that 97% of their season subscribers "renewed their seats, which is a small drop" from the 99% that stood pat heading into the '12-13 lockout-shortened season." The team has "increased the cap of season ticket-holders from 15,400 to 16,000, which means it will have less work to do to get to the 19,070 capacity each night in First Niagara Center." This is the "third straight year the cap has been increased." The new 600 season seats "came from members of the Blue & Gold club waiting list, which now has more than 2,500 names." The Sabres also announced that mini-packs will go on sale Sept. 5, allowing fans to purchase from 5-40 games at up to 10% percent off box office prices (BUFFALONEWS.com, 8/15).
