COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Columbus Blue Jackets today introduced several six-game ticket packages for the 2008-09 National Hockey League season. The ticket packs offer a unique bundle of games selected either for its opponents (Original Six Pack, Central Division Pack), days of the week (Saturday Pack, Business Pack) or marquee match-ups (Premier Pack). Each six-pack starts at $150 and allows purchasers to save up to $90 off the price of single-game tickets. As an added benefit, fans will receive the same seat locations for each game of their chosen series.
"These six-game ticket packs were created to meet the needs of our fans that enjoy coming to several games a year, but are unable to commit financially or timewise to attending up to 41 home games," said Larry Hoepfner, Columbus Blue Jackets Senior Vice President of Business Operations.
