SABRES ANNOUNCE NEW DYNAMIC TICKET PRICING STRUCTURE

by Staff Writer / Buffalo Sabres

The Buffalo Sabres today announced a new dynamic ticket pricing model for all Sabres home games in the 2016-17 regular season that will adjust ticket prices to better reflect demand throughout the season.

The new pricing plan was developed through a partnership with Qcue, a dynamic pricing company that has previously partnered with several other sports and entertainment organizations. The plan categorizes each game into one of three pricing tiers to determine the initial box office ticket price for individual game tickets. Games are categorized based on the opponent, time of the year, day of the week, classic rivalries and games against marquee players.

As fans purchase tickets, the price of each individual game can rise or fall to better reflect the demand for tickets. Ticket prices may decrease below the initial box office price, but will never fall below season ticket prices. The pricing plan for the 2016-17 season includes eight Tier 1 games, 20 Tier 2 games and 13 Tier 3 games.

The team also announced that single-game tickets for the 2016-17 regular season will go on sale on Saturday, Sept. 17 at 10 a.m. Tickets for the team’s 2016 preseason home games will go on sale today at 10. a.m. Buffalo will play two home games during the preseason: Sept. 27 vs. Ottawa and Sept. 30 vs. Toronto.

Mini-Packs, which go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, Sept. 7, will once again give fans the opportunity to create their own ticket package comprised of anywhere from five to 40 games. By purchasing a Mini-Pack, fans can save up to 27 percent off initial box office prices. Existing Mini-Pack holders will have the opportunity to renew their package beginning on Wednesday, Aug. 31. Additionally, Mini-Pack holders will not pay a ticket service charge and will have the ability to purchase playoff tickets before they go on sale to the general public (based on availability).
