The Ducks have announced that the club’s season and individual game ticket prices for the 2008-2009 season. Season tickets will rise an average of 6.6%, with individual game tickets increasing by 7.2%.
Season tickets for the 2008-09 campaign will begin at $10.50 per game. Individual game tickets will start at $18.50. All tickets are subject to an arena facility fee, beginning at $1.50.
“Keeping ticket prices affordable was paramount in our decision-making process,” said Anaheim
Ducks Executive Vice President/COO Tim Ryan. “Our fans have been terrific once again and we look forward to another great season of Ducks hockey next year.”
The Ducks’ complete 2008-09 season schedule will be announced this summer. The 2008-09 campaign will feature a new scheduling matrix that was approved by the NHL’s Board of Governors in November 2007. With the schedule changes, the Ducks will face each Pacific Division opponent just three times at Honda Center (six games between the two teams total), thus allowing for more inter-conference games. The Western Conference will face each Eastern Conference club at least once during the season, offering more opportunities for Honda Center visits by the likes of Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Alexander Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals. In total, the Ducks will face Eastern Conference teams 18 times during the 2008-09 season with the remaining 64 games devoted to Western Conference play (six games between divisional opponents, four games between in-conference opponents).
The Ducks completed the 2007-2008 regular season with a record of 47-27-8 for 102 points, finishing fourth in the Western Conference. The club will host Dallas
in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals at Honda Center on Thursday, Apr. 10 (7 p.m. faceoff).
