/ Boston Bruins
BOSTON - The Boston Bruins announced today that individual game tickets will go on sale to the general public at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 10 through BostonBruins.com, at the TD Banknorth Garden Box Office, by phone at 617.624.BEAR (2327), and at all Ticketmaster locations. Season tickets, half season tickets and ten game packages are currently on sale.
The Bruins have made a commitment to bring families back to the game of hockey. In addition to previously announced discounts on season tickets, prices on over half of the individual game ticket categories have been reduced for the 2005-06 season. Children ages 12 and under can attend the ten Bruins games prior to Thanksgiving for free and popular promotional events such as Student Nights, Family Packs and Home for the Holidays, which offer ticket discounts to selected games throughout the season, are returning. The Boston Bruins Foundation also plans to distribute over 1,000 tickets to preseason games to local youth organizations.
"The lower ticket prices are the first step in providing our fans with a great entertainment value," said Bruins Executive Vice President Charlie Jacobs. "We are working on several family-friendly events and promotions throughout the season to make this year memorable to all of our fans."
Individual game tickets have been reduced by as much as $9 for the 2005-06 season and a $10 balcony ticket price has been added, with single-game tickets ranging from $10-$99. In all, the Bruins have lowered the price on 66% of their tickets, while the price of remaining seats have been frozen at 2003-04 prices.
The Bruins will also hold an additional "Fan Appreciation Night" at the beginning of the season, scheduled on October 20th when they host the Buffalo Sabres at TD Banknorth Garden. Season ticket holders will get that game for free and the highlight of the evening is the "Shirts Off Our Backs" event, where 20 lucky fans in attendance that evening are selected by a lottery to receive that night's game-worn jerseys from the players.
