Season tickets

Hi, I'm new to HFboards. Long time flyers fan and for the first time ever, I'm getting season tickets (full season).

Very excited, never been season ticket holder before, but I had a chance to look at the benefits and perks and Great.

what sealed the deal was getting a center ice positon.

I'll be in section 224 row 15 and its an isle seat can't beat that.

the box office charges 81.00 for that area and row, I'll be getting the seat for 39.00

3 preseason 41 reg season 44 total at 39 = 1716.00 I only had to put 200 for a security depsoit now. the rest will be broken down over a 9 month payment plan. (May- JAN) Interest Free.

the 200 i put down will go to the first month, so my first payment isn't till June. which will be 190 a month till JAN. I can pay more of course if I choose to pay it faster.

Not a bad gig.

That's the seat I had last years playoff. That's a solid section and great view. Congrats!

Flyers, they have the meet and greet in the summer right? I believe they have nice benefits to STH.

you can make some nice coin just by selling those tickets to games you don't want to go to for face value

This year or next year? This year $45 per game. $1,980 for the entire season. (x2: $90 and $3,960)
Next year it's going to be $47 per game. $2,068 for the entire season (x2: $94 and $4,136)

You won't get face value for the majority of the games up top sadly. Learned it the hard way.

Ain't that the truth.
Anyone looking to just pick up a few games at STH prices, I have a pair in the upper level. I know some folks here just wait for the last minute and hope, but sharing seats gives you a better shot at games you might want, and the possibility of sharing some STH benefits. And if you take at least five games from me, I'll add you to my playoff rotation.

This thread depresses me. 2 Grand for season tickets? 2 regular season games in Toronto and 2 in Buffalo has averaged out 550-600 for the past 3 Seasons.

its not totally depressing. I been wanting to become a STH for a long time. I finally have a chance at doing it. Its a nice thread

44 games at 39.00 is ok. I wish it was lower of course, but its alot cheaper then paying game day prices.

Sitting downstairs is really aweseome if you are within the first 5-10 rows off the ice..
I sat a few games in the 2nd row and it was great.. Wouldn't pay the price for those tickets.. but still awesome

I can't stand sitting upstairs. Holy hell. I feel like I'm missing out on being at a live sporting event. If I get a second pair up top (unlikely) it would be for family use, and definitely not me

And compare center six sections in the lower level to first row up top in terms of pricing. I'd pay that different in a heartbeat.

There's nothing better in the world than watching NHL hockey in section 101 about 10 rows off the ice.

You'll have a blast. I've just been fortunate enough to have been sitting in the lower level since I was a kid.

I miss when it was a bit easier to look at a section or group of rows and determine the price. I had only paid attention to the mezzanine pricing since that's where I sit but I was with a friend downstairs tonight who hadn't yet seen next year's prices (she renews at the first opportunity regardless). We were looking at the latest wrinkle in the lower level, different pricing depending whether it is the shoot 1x or 2x end, with the corners in the 1x end falling in between in terms of pricing. I'm curious to see how much the "face value" prices change.

I hope they never add that wrinkle to the Mezzanine... This season was the first with increased prices as you go lower/decreased as you go higher and our 23.5% increase for the 2nd row (and IIRC another 3.7% increase next season for our row). We sit where the Flyers shoot twice and I would be totally pissed if they bumped us up and lowered the cost for the 1X people... not a fan of the uneven rate hikes. BTW, what do they do with the people with the desirable Center Ice seats? Maybe they keep them the same and raise the 2X and reduce the 1X sections... they can do it on a seat by seat basis like they did with their row by row restructuring of last season.

I personally like the lower rows of the Mezzanine due to the more reasonable pricing and the ability to better see plays develop... and more of the overall ice at the same time. I remember sitting in the 1st and 2nd rows in the lower bowl of the Spectrum... the view was great for seeing up close and personal the battles in the trenches, BUT I personally would no want to sit there on a game by game basis and reserve those front rows for occasional games. That said, up several rows off the ice would certainly allow better views of the overall ice action... Different strokes for different folks and chocolate vs vanilla ice cream type of situation; this is why all the seats are accounted for each game, and most everyone is content over the long haul.

For my situation I'm fine... before this season's pricing reconstruction a guy I know was able to see all 44 Regular and and Preseason games in the top row of the corner for the same price I saw 42 games where I sit... At this point in my life, I'm happy with a half season and what I consider a better location -- that other guy was younger and single with more open time to attend -- While the recent increases are frustrating and might push my partner to leave his 50% of the games, me and my son are content and enjoy our time together at the games.
