The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has capped season ticket sales for the 2015-16 season at 16,000 tickets. The cap is designed to ensure the availability of mini packs and individual game tickets for all fans.
“The fact that we had such a high rate of renewal from our season ticket holders is really a testament to the direction our organization is headed,” Sabres president Russ Brandon said. “There’s a tremendous amount of excitement surrounding our team and we can’t wait to get on the ice.”
The Sabres had 96 percent of season ticket holders renew their tickets for the 2015-16 season, marking the 10th consecutive season featuring a renewal rate higher than 90 percent. The team still has more than 2,000 people on the Blue & Gold Club season ticket waiting list.
