The Columbus Blue Jackets announced on Friday that the hockey club has surpassed a 90 percent rate of season ticket renewals for the 2006-07 National Hockey League season. In addition, the team has collected deposits for nearly 150 new season ticket accounts.
“We are very pleased and appreciative of the tremendous enthusiasm and support shown by our season ticket holders towards the Blue Jackets,” said David Paitson, Columbus Blue Jackets Vice President of Ticketing. “It is also rewarding to see that our fan base continues to grow as evidence by the number of new season ticket deposits we've collected so far this spring.”
In 205 home games since joining the NHL in 2000, the Blue Jackets have averaged 17,501 fans per game which is 96.5 percent of capacity (18,136) at Nationwide Arena. There have been 115 sellouts over five seasons.
The team will host its annual Select-A-Seat Open House for season ticket holders on Wednesday, June 7 and Thursday, June 8 at Nationwide Arena. During that time, current season ticket holders will have the opportunity to scout all available seats should they choose to change their locations.
Prospective new season ticket holders are invited to the public Open House on Thursday, June 8 from 6 – 8:30 p.m. during which time they will be able to reserve any seats unclaimed by existing season seat holders. For more information on PSL season tickets, call (614) 246-PUCK or (800) NHL-COLS.
