Phoenix Coyotes President and Chief Operating Officer Douglas Moss announced today that Coyotes season ticket plans for the 2010-11 regular season will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Monday, June 7. Following the most successful season in franchise history, which saw the Coyotes post Club records for wins (50) and points (107), over 10,000 seats at the 17,125-seat Jobing.com Arena will be priced lower or remain the same for the 2010-11 campaign as they were in 2009-10 while the average price of a season ticket will be reduced by more than $2.
"The Coyotes' outstanding play, and the support of the fans, made Jobing.com Arena an intimidating environment for every visiting team last season,” said NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. “There is every reason to expect more of the same in 2010-11; outstanding hockey, and affordable prices, make for a winning combination."
“We are very excited to unveil our new season ticket pricing as we prepare to build off of last year’s successful season,” said Moss. “Last season provided some wonderful memories for our fans and we are thrilled that ‘The Pack is Back’ for the 2010-11 campaign. Our new pricing plan continues to fulfill our commitment to providing affordable tickets to our loyal fan base. With that in mind, we revised our plan for next season to offer a variety of options while making it possible for more fans to experience the exciting, fast-paced action of Coyotes hockey from the lower level, thereby creating even more of a home ice advantage at Jobing.com Arena.”
Fans that purchase a full season ticket by July 9, 2010 will receive one invitation per seat to a Meet the Team event that will be held early in the season. More details will be available at a later date. Meanwhile, the Coyotes 2010-11 schedule will be announced on June 22, 2010.
As part of the new season ticket pricing plan for the 2010-11 season, the Coyotes have eliminated two pricing categories. One highlight of the new pricing plan is the lower level corners, which includes eight sections of seats that will be reduced from $60 to $45 for the upcoming season, representing a $15 decrease. As a result of this price reduction, over 80% of lower level seats will be available for $45 per game for Season Ticket Holders.
The most drastic reduction in the pricing plan comes in the Row B seats, where fans can purchase season tickets in the second row of seating for as low as $45, representing an $80 price reduction in the corner sections. Row B seats in the four center sections will decrease from $125 last year to $80 for this season. There will also be a $50 price decrease on over 60% of Row A seats, which will be available for $150 per game this season. In all, 60% of the seats in the first two rows at Jobing.com Arena will be available to Season Ticket Holders at a lower rate than last season.
In the upper level, 71% of the seats will remain the same in price for next season, while the remaining seats will increase by increments of $1, $5 or $6 depending on location.
This season, the Coyotes will offer Season Ticker Holders the “Pack Pricing Guarantee,” which guarantees that the Full Season Ticket rate will be the lowest ticket rate for the entire season (excluding Coyotes Charities tickets).
In addition to securing the same great seats to every game, Coyotes Season Ticket Holders also receive a variety of other great benefits. Season Ticket Holder Benefits for the 2010-11 campaign include the option to purchase one’s tickets in the same location for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, an invitation to an exclusive team autograph session and a discount at the Coyotes Den Team Store. Season Ticket Holders will also receive access to Ticketmaster Account Manager, which gives fans the flexibility to print their tickets at home, email their tickets to a friend free of charge (also known as Free Ticket Forwarding) or sell their tickets through Ticketmaster’s Ticket Exchange if they cannot attend a game.
The Coyotes will host 40 regular season home games at Jobing.com Arena this season instead of 41 after they begin the campaign by playing their first two regular season games in Prague, Czech Republic versus the Boston Bruins on Oct. 9 and 10 as part of the 2010 Compuware NHL Premiere. Phoenix will be designated as the home team for one of the contests.
Last season, Jobing.com Arena crowds watched as the Coyotes posted a record of 29-10-2 on home ice to set a new franchise record for home wins in a season. In addition, the Coyotes won 10 consecutive home games from Nov. 21 to Dec. 29, 2009, which was also a franchise record.
