Hockey Tournament Concerns Lawmaker

Was looking for some update to how ticket sale are going for the WJC and found this article...

Hockey Tournament Concerns Lawmaker

Apparently some local politician was concerned that enough was being done to assist tourists coming to Buffalo...

Quote:
“There’s a lot of ball-dropping going on,” said Assemblyman Sam Hoyt, a Buffalo Democrat. “This is, in my opinion, a crisis in the making.”

Hoyt, in a letter to the Buffalo Niagara Convention and Visitors Bureau, expressed concern about a “lack of cooperation” between the Buffalo Sabres, who are hosting the event, and the CVB.

“We can’t do these things in silos,” he told The Buffalo News. “What’s important is to take what little time we have left to make this right.”
However I did find some of what I was looking for....

Quote:
The Sabres already have sold about 11,800 all-session ticket packages and an additional 260,000 single-game tickets to the event.

They expect to sell about 400,000 tickets, more than half the Sabres’ total expected home attendance for the year.
I would have preferred a more specific breakdown...
