DETROIT -- The Red Wings announced today that they will begin offering season ticket holders a new noncredit-based payment option from eLayawaySPORTS when paying for their 2009-10 season tickets.
The Red Wings are the first NHL team, and only the third professional sports franchise, to offer the plan, which allows consumers to pay for season tickets over time with zero interest.
“A partnership with eLayawaySPORTS fits perfectly with the needs of our season ticket holders in these difficult economic times,” said Steve Violetta, Red Wings senior vice president of business affairs. “One of our goals is to make it as convenient as possible for all fans to enjoy the benefits of being a Red Wings' season ticket holder and we’re very excited to be the first NHL club to offer this new customized payment option to our fans.”
eLayawaySPORTS is a payment processor that allows the Red Wings' season ticket holders to customize their payments for their season tickets over time. These monthly payment dates are selected by the fan and automatically deducted from their bank accounts. The technology charges a 1.9% flat transaction fee and zero interest. The new program will give Red Wings' fans the opportunity to pre-pay for their season tickets in a manner that meets their lifestyle and budget and receive the tickets when the package is paid in full.
