(TORONTO) -- The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Monday that ticket prices for the 2004-05 season will remain at the same levels they were during 2003-04 season.
"Obviously, we're pleased to keep prices at the same levels as last season," said Tom Anselmi, executive vice-president and chief operating officer of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment Ltd. "Each year we strive to minimize the impact that the increased costs of doing business has on ticket prices. While we don't know what the outcome will be of the NHL collective bargaining process, we anticipate an improved financial system over what currently is in place."
Anselmi added that the league is committed to a new collective agreement that will work for the players, provide greater cost certainty for the teams and most importantly benefit the fans. The current collective bargaining agreement between the NHL and NHL Players Association is set to expire September 15, 2004.
Leafs season ticket renewals will take place shortly. Information regarding single tickets for the 2004-05 season will be announced at a future date.
