When the Buffalo Sabres announced that they had bought the Rochester Americans one of the things they announced was that all season tickets were going to be $10 only for any ticket in the building. Â Sounds like that’s paying off in numbers.
Ted Black stated today at the press conference that the Amerks have already exceeded last seasons number of season tickets by 20%. Â He also said that the Amerks lead the American Hockey League in new FULL season ticket holder sales. Â To get to these numbers they’ve been averaging about 100 new sales a week.
An exciting team from day one on the ice playing exciting hockey should lead to consistent crowds this city hasn’t seen in the past decade. Â The buzz about Amerks hockey continues to build.
If we make it to every game in the first season I wonder if we’ll make the “Pegula List” for perfect attendance? Â Do we graduate and get a diploma if the team gets a Calder Cup? Â Silly questions.. sounds like a silly promotion too!
