There's no line anymore--and you would have waited more than 3 hours if there was one--tickets aren't sold at the box office anymore, you have to through ticketmaster.

I went to my college's library and my gf and I were using 4 or 5 computers and managed to get 4 games during that first hour... Luckily we were able to pick up other games (including opening night) throughout the season through various methods (including tm)

Great idea. I'm definitely doing that.

According to the letter I got today from the Rangers re: our season subscription:

Quote:
Individual tickets will go on-sale on Saturday, September 20 at 12:00 noon. Ticket will be available for purchase at newyorkrangers.com, Ticketmaster charge-by-phone at 212-307-7171 and Ticketmaster outlets. Your purchase will be limited to four (4) tickets per game. Please be aware, inventory for 2008-09 individual games is extremely limited.

Please note that due to extremely high season subscription renewals for the upcoming season, we are unable to offer a subscriber pre-sale for individual game tickets.

Snail mail. The point was to tell us when our season subscription would be available to be picked up (Friday, Sep 12th) or would be shipped (Sep 11 thru Sep 13) and to encourage subscribers to use ticket exchange if they planned on reselling their tickets (so they can get a cut, of course). The info on individual tickets was included.

Excellent, thanks for the heads-up.

I kind of miss the old days of getting to MSG at the crack of dawn and picking up tickets on a 80-degree September day for a game in March..the last time they did it was 2005 right after the lockout and there was a line of fans that snaked around the entire building. And there were always players and food and free stuff.

Yep, MSG is really raking in the big bucks with their exorbitant fees--all of $1.95 per ticket. Plus, as a seller of the occasional ticket, I don't have to wait (sometimes for hours) until the potential buyer gets around to putting the money in my paypal account and I can send the tickets off.

How much does Stubhub charge?

In the 1990s, if you didn't get there before 5pm the day before tickets went on sale, you never got near the box office. Although MSG was always nice enough to pass out wrist bands, so you didn't have spend the whole night in line.

Yeah I remember them passing out wrist bands around 11 PM the night before and arriving a few hours later at about 6 AM. Good times.

As already mentioned: you cannot buy tickets at the box office. You must go through ticketmaster.

I'm pretty sure that tickets will only be available online and not at the Garden box office.... that's the way it's been the last couple of years when I started to have enough money to actually go to games. And now I just have to wait for my seasons to show up... Again, I'm very excited about them.

If I was you I would just use the ticket exchange on the site where season ticket holders put their tickets up for sale. Most of the times you get face value and you also get a good selection, a lot better than the selection you would get from ticketmaster.
