The Buffalo Sabres have drastically reduced season ticket prices in the 100 & 200 levels for the upcoming 2004-05 season. This substantial rollback, of 12% to 28%, is the largest one-time reduction in the organizationís 35-year history making the Buffalo Sabres' average ticket price the lowest in the NHL this season.

Significantly reduced season ticket prices compared to 2003-2004...
100 Level Preferred - save $480
100 Level II - save $400
100 Level III - save $440
100 Level IV - save $320
200 Club Level - save $360
and no price increases for the 300 Level

Heres the more:

The Buffalo Sabres' average season ticket price for the 2004-05 season is about $35, the lowest in the NHL. Furthermore, with over 10,000 seats below $30, fans can enjoy Sabres hockey at prices that are at or below levels of when the team moved into HSBC Arena in 1996. Also, over 1,300 seats are $17 or less on a season basis!

The Sabres are offering a season ticket in the lower bowl for just $21, by far the lowest priced lower bowl ticket of any NHL team. Furthermore, the Sabres are one of only four NHL teams (Anaheim, Florida, and Nashville) who have a season ticket as low as $10.

Paying for season tickets has never been easier. Each seat will be held with just a $50 deposit (lowest in the NHL). Season Ticket holders will not be asked for any additional payments until after a new collective bargaining agreement with the players has been reached. Fans can also choose a plan of three installments over the summer, or pay in full. Either plan you choose is refundable with 2% interest in the event of a work stoppage.

To make the game even more affordable for all fans, variable pricing has been implemented for Mini-Pack plans and individual game tickets. Each game is designated Gold, Silver, Bronze or Value, with the classification being based on the opponent, time of the year, day of the week, rivalries, and games against all-star players.
