MLS Impact Seeing Boost In Season-Ticket Sales, Hope To Reach 10,000 By Opener
The MLS Impact have "already matched season ticket sales from a year ago and hope to reach at least 9,000" before their home opener on March 22, according to the CP. The Impact yesterday said that it has "sold 8,300 season tickets," with an 81% renewal rate from last season. Season-ticket prices range from C$339 to C$1,230. Impact Exec VP Richard Legendre in a statement said, "We are confident that we will be able to reach a new plateau of 9,000 season tickets for 2014, but we still have the 10,000 number in sight." The club is putting "a marketing focus on the first three home games," which will be played at Olympic Stadium before they move outdoors to Saputo Stadium on April 26. The Impact also plans "an extensive advertising and marketing campaign, and to increase public appearances" of players (CP, 2/12).
