Big news from the team today, the story is now up on our site.
Some reporters including myself got to speak with Gary Wright, the club’s senior vice president of business operations, about the ticket situation today, and here is what we learned:
On the announcement itself:
“That’s a tribue to the fans that have not only come back fantatically with great renewals, but there’s so many out there that want to be a part of this great celebration…It is a celebration. It’s a game that the energy of the game is created by the fans. Those that have gone have been able to feel that energy, participate in that energy, and you’re part of the whole experience. From the March to the Match to the final whistle.”
Wright said capping capacity at close to 36,000 — including upper-bowl loge seating but not the Hawks Nest — is the natural fit. The Hawks Nest will not be uncovered because of the sponsorship of Xbox. “Xbox is very important to us. They’ve been a great partner,” Wright said.
“We’ll still have some single individual game tickets,” Wright said. “We have commitments to the visiting team, we have commitments to our own team. We’ll be around the same configuration as the playoffs. The number can always vary from game to game.”
