German Hockey League (DEL) club Eisbären Berlin "has set a new club record for season ticket sales," according to the SID. The defending champion "has sold 4,424 season tickets ahead of Friday's season start." The "previous best of 4,126 was set during the previous year." After a "dispute regarding price hikes and a short-term boycott during the '12-13 season, the Eisbären are hoping again to receive complete support from their fans." Club GM Peter John Lee said, "We have, in close collaboration with our fans, implemented necessary price increases. After this very emotional process in April, we are now looking forward that our fans, which are a very important part of the Eisbären family, support us more than before" (SID, 9/11).
