Canadiens raise ticket prices
Teams embrace 'we lose, you pay' model
Following in the trend of Canadian teams that miss the playoffs yet raise ticket prices, the Montreal Canadiens joined the Toronto Maple Leafs in an unholy union today with this fun bit of news:
If you have season tickets to Canadiens games at the Bell Centre, you’re going to be paying more money for them next season, despite the fact the team failed to make the playoffs this year.Dave Stubbs (and I'm guessing he handles all of the ticket-sales stories) has even more over at Habs Inside/Out, including the fact that some fans will see their season's tickets rise by more than 17 per cent due to the reclassification of some seats.
The Canadiens have increased their ticket prices from about 3 to 5 per cent across the board for the 2007-08 season.
Not that the $8,100 package was reasonable to begin with.
