The Nashville Predators recently announced a new season-ticket campaign, highlighted by an opportunity for new and current season ticketholders to freeze their season-ticket rates at the 2008-09 season ticket prices for two years through the 2010-11 season.
The 2/20 Loyalty Plan offer, which ends on April 23, allows fans who purchase the full-season or 23-game plan for the next two seasons, a 20-month interest-free payment option to be drawn directly from a debit or credit account. This plan also holds the line on 2008-2009 season-ticket rates through the 2010-11 season. Only full-season and 23-game ticket holders are eligible for the 2/20 plan. Fans may still purchase season tickets for the 2009-10 season only but may be subject to a minimal price increase. This 2/20 initiative is consistent with the Predators recent decision to freeze the 2008-09 regular-season prices through the team’s first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
With a two-year commitment to the Nashville Predators, season ticketholders will pay the same price this coming year and the next year as they paid this past year. All fans that sign up for the two-year plan with the Nashville Predators will also get the option to purchase this season’s Stanley Cup Playoff game tickets at the season ticket holder rate.
Special 2/20 benefits include:
- New Third Jersey – Full Season tickets only - expected to be released in the 2009-10 season.
- A two-year price freeze
- Interest-free, 20-month payment plan
- Hockey 201 Chalk Talks
- Holiday Family-Photo night
- Up to a 45% discount off the gate rate
- Guaranteed seats
- Rights to purchase extra tickets during the season
- Rights to purchase seats to other Sommet Center events
- Food and beverage vouchers
- Bonus tickets and exchange nights.
2/20 Loyalty Plan - Frequently Asked Questions
The deadline for this offer is April 23, 2009.
With this prize freeze, the Predators will have raised ticket prices only four times in 13 years – with season-ticket prices staying flat eight times and even lowering in the 2005-2006 season. This translates to less than a 2% increase in prices over a span of 13 years. While some seat prices have risen minimally (Premium lower bowl in 98-99: $57.21, 08-09: $70.00; Sideline balcony in 98-99: $23.84, 08-09: $27.00) others have been reduced (Sections 101-103 and 118-120 have be lowered from $70 to $61).
Playing in one of the smallest arenas in the NHL, with a sellout capacity of 17, 113, the Predators boast some of the lowest ticket prices in the league. The Predators offer a game atmosphere and entertainment value that are second to none and customer service and satisfaction are always a top priority. With plans such as the 2/20, the Predators hope to reward their most loyal and consistent fans.
“This is a unique and compelling offer – one we believe factors in the economic challenges while rewarding and accommodating our most loyal season ticketholders,” Predators President of Business Operations Ed Lang said. “We continue to offer some of the lowest priced tickets in the NHL while maintaining our commitment to providing great entertainment value – from the on-ice product to the in-arena experience – combined with great benefits and customer service.”
The Predators are poised for a future of success with core players such as all stars Jason Arnott and Shea Weber
on the roster along with rookie goaltending sensation Pekka Rinne
and top prospects Jon Blum, Chet Pickard
and Hobey-Baker hopeful Colin Wilson
in the system. After going 10-4-1 though the month of February, the Predators are in contention for making their fifth consecutive playoff berth. They are one of only seven NHL teams to have made it in each of the last four seasons.
