RALEIGH, NC (July 16, 2001) – Ken Lehner, Vice President of Marketing Communications for the National Hockey League Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the team has expanded its mini-season ticket plan options for the 2001-02 season. Partial season ticket holders can now choose between three different seven-game packs, 14-game options and a 21-game plan.
The Hurricanes are introducing three seven-game packs from which fans can choose their favorite option. Seven-game plan holders will choose one pack and 14-game plan purchasers will pick two of the three packs. The “Caniac Red Pack” is comprised entirely of games that take place during the week between Tuesday and Thursday and includes match-ups against the Detroit Red Wings, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Buffalo Sabres. The “Caniac White Pack” focuses on Friday and Saturday night games and includes pairings with the New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals. The “Caniac Black Pack” features four Sunday games and has contests against the Dallas Stars, Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins.
Fans who purchase 21-game plans will receive all three packs with one exception: the plan will remove the Oct. 11 game against Toronto featured in the “Red Pack” and substitute the Hurricanes’ opening night game against the New York Rangers on Oct. 5.
The mini-season ticket plans will provide fans with some of the advantages of a full-season ticket plan, including a discount off the gate price, a chance to purchase game tickets before they go on sale to the general public, and priority status for tickets during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Seat location availability for each of the plans will be limited, with the top seat locations reserved for full-season ticket plans and more prime seat locations reserved for the larger plans.
Hurricanes mini-season ticket plans are available immediately. For more information or to purchase a mini-season ticket plan for the 2001-02 season, please call the Carolina Hurricanes at (919) 467-7825 or (888) NHL-TIX-1.
