Pens hike season ticket prices by 4 percent
The Penguins have increased their ticket prices but by a smaller amount than in the past, team spokesman Tom McMillan said.
According to McMillan, season-ticket holders were informed via e-mail on Monday of a four percent increase for next season, compared with increases of “roughly five and six percent” the last two years.
He added that the increase is an averaged figure that is higher or lower for certain ticket-holders.
McMillan said ticket prices go up most but not all years. He said in the late 1990s and early to mid-2000s the club “either held the line on prices or even reduced prices.”
Referring to the recent flurry of deals pulled off by Penguins, McMillan said, “One thing I think the fans know is that the money goes back into the team. Some of the best examples of that came with the trades of the past few days.”
The season ticket waiting list is 9,500 and the renewal rate was 98 percent last year, McMillan said.
