The Buffalo Sabres have announced that there will be an increase in season ticket prices for the 2010-2011 season. The increase is expected to be about five percent, forcing prices to increase one to four dollars per game.
Seats in Section 300’s Level IV will now be $22 per game, upping the total to $902 for the season. The 200 club is now 88 per game, bringing the total to $3,608.
Out of the 17,690 seats in HSBC Arena, 16,500 of them belong to season ticket holders. Many fans are currently on a waiting list to purchase their own season tickets. Buffalo sold out 30 of 41 home games this past season.
As last year, season ticket holders will receive a 2.5% rebate on their Sabrebucks card. They will also be able to purchase parking at a reduced price.
Season ticker holders should expect to receive their renewal packages in the mail during the next two weeks. A 10% deposit is due on June 18th in order to secure the seat location. Fans will also have the option of using refund money from the playoffs towards the season tickets.
