is the hurricanes franchise alright? tickets .25 cents
 
a stubhub search reveals tonights tickets for just one quarter (.25 us dollars)

lower level tickets for < 6.00, lower level center ice for < 9.00. Center ice club zone tickets for <10.00

is this franchise ok?

Less than a cent?

Why would some one sell 4 tickets for 1 penny? doesnt even seem worth the time of putting them online.

Prices on stub hub have nothing to do with the prices the team charged. If the team is selling tickets for these prices then they are probably in trouble, but stub hub prices are meaning less.

The tickets are sold. Not the franchise's problem if ticket holders want to dump their tickets for cheap.

They're averaging about 97% capacity a night, I'd say they're just fine...

Bingo.


The game isn't a sellout, so scampers are going to take anything they can get.

Their were plenty of penny Cubs and Sox tickets last season. Time to move them to Portland and Charlotte.

The franchise is as okay as Lennay Kekua.

MeowLeafs 03-07-2013 06:40 PM

But how much were the tickets when they were originally sold?

I think we need more than a random sampling of ticket resales to declare there's a financial problem in Carolina.


Closed.
