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. 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%. He also said that the Amerks lead the American Hockey League in new FULL season ticket holder sales. 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. 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? Do we graduate and get a diploma if the team gets a Calder Cup? Silly questions.. sounds like a silly promotion too!
