The Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins will again cap full season ticket equivalents at 14,000 in 2009-10, their final season at Mellon Arena. Seating capacity is 16,940.
The Penguins, who have sold out 118 straight games, including every game the past two seasons, began limiting the sales of full season tickets in 2007-08 – in order to continue to expand their fan base, and to make tickets available for fans to purchase mini-plans and individual game tickets.
“We have renewed our season tickets at 98 percent, which is phenomenal in this economy, and we are currently making a limited number of season tickets available to fans at the top of our season ticket waiting list,” team president David Morehouse said. “The energy and excitement about Penguins hockey this summer is incredible. The players and coaches are enjoying a brief but well-deserved off-season, and we’re all looking forward to getting the team back on the ice and defending the Stanley Cup.”
The Penguins’ season ticket waiting list has grown to more than 3,000. Fans on that list will have the opportunity to purchase mini-plans when they go on sale in early September.
Individual game tickets will go on sale to the general public later in September, on a date to be determined.
The Penguins also will continue to offer popular “Student Rush” promotions to local college and high school students during the season, including special Student Rush ticket nights, ticket giveaways and special offers. Students may sign up for a mobile club that enables them to receive announcements regarding individual game ticket availability and other promotions.
