Pistons Introduce Various Ticket Promotions To Boost Attendance

The Pistons are "looking to boost" their typical game attendance with this season's "ticket promotions and packages," according to Rob Beard of the DETROIT NEWS. The Pistons are "augmenting their offerings with more affordable promotions and offers" ahead of their home opener against the Hawks on Oct. 24. For that game, the team will have a "'Wallside Windows BOGO' two-for-one ticket package with some $18 seats in the upper level averaging $9 each." That package also will be "available for four additional games." Another new ticket package is the "Motor City Pass, which has seating in the gondola for up to eight games in a calendar month for $89." That is the "first subscription service the Pistons have offered, allowing fans to select games around their monthly schedule or budget and cancel at any time." There are only about 200 seats "available for each game" with the Motor City Pass, and the "only game excluded" is when the Lakers visit on March 22. The third new package is the "Sprite Family Four Pack, which provides four tickets, four hot dogs and four soft drinks starting at $99." It will be "available for all games." Despite making the playoffs last season with their best record since '16, the Pistons' ticket sales "didn't reflect that improvement." The team ranked 24th in the league in home attendance and averaged 16,486 tickets sold in 41 games at Little Caesars Arena, a drop of about 5-6% from '17-18 (DETROIT NEWS, 10/17).
