Buffalo, NY (WBEN) Despite missing the playoffs, 97 percent of Buffalo Sabres season ticket holders have renewed for the upcoming season. The team has also announced an increase in the cap of sesaon tickets available.
The number of season tickets has been capped at approximately 16,000 tickets. The new season-ticket holder base represents an increase of about 600 additional season tickets from last year’s capped total of 15,400 tickets. This is the third straight year the number of season-ticket holders has increased. The 600 additional season-ticket holders were moved from the team’s official waiting list, the Blue & Gold Club, which continues to grow and includes more than 2,500 names.
“We again wanted to continue to try and reach the demand that exists for Sabres season tickets,” said team president Ted Black. “There have been thousands of very loyal and very patient fans in our Blue & Gold Club that have been waiting for years to be eligible to purchase season tickets. We wanted to reward that loyalty by continuing to transition people from that waiting list to our ever-growing base of season-ticket holders. Our fans remain among the most dedicated in the league and we continue to be appreciative of their support.”
