Guess were my seats are? Section 212 row 3. My seats are increasing 9%.


For that price I will stay home and watch it on TV. I don't appreciate Bordelon's attitude at all.

I expect that this is going to make the select-a-seats a little bit busier than usual. Im currently in 205 row 9, previous year 206 Row 10. I guess that means I'll be in 204 Row 8 this season

-Quickest postseason exit in team history
-Raise ticket prices

Yeah that makes sense.

Guess they have to make up for lost revenue somehow.

All part of the plan to justify buying out Zeus

they have to do it now while this team isn't too far removed from being a contender (and some people still believe we could be). it'll be interesting to see what they do in two years when the full-scale rebuild kicks off

Makes me feel better for deciding not to renew my partial season tickets and putting my money into the Niners.

I suspect you are right. They'll back off in increases if attendance falls off. At that point, player payroll will come down.

They'll probably try to reap as much as they can by increasing more the following season.

I'm looking forward to a brand new team some day. This one has a rotten stench.

not renewing(have had the tickets since the tank opened), they have done nothing to justify a cost increase, they have asked for deposits earlier and earlier every year as well. Regardless of their supposed "increased costs" they still have to justify what they charge with the product in the arena, I am afraid they are falling short.

Sharks prices increasing 6.5% on average.

And they're charging more for end that Sharks attack twice.

Currently 13,950 (of 17,562) seats for STHs.

(Single game ticket prices to be announced after schedule is released.)

And the funny thing is, if that blog post is accurate, my seats upstairs at center ice will actually be cheaper than those deep inside one offensive zone (almost in the corner) - and mine are much better seats. Differentiating one set of end seats (shoots twice vs once) makes some sense, but graduating the seats along the sides makes little.

I feel really bad for having my first thought being "oh sweet then I can afford season tickets on my college student budget!" when I read that.

KDB, I tend to agree. I sit in sec 214, row 14, two rows above the next price tier (actually two price tiers) and two seats in from the blue line aisle. I think it's been the sweet spot cost vs. view and unless I win the lotto, will hold these seats forever.

But it does rankle me to have to eat a price increase when they had a first round exit and they didn't spend to the cap this year.

Can someone explain how a seat between the blue lines costs less than a seat in the corner? I don't get it.

I also sit in Section 212 Row 3 and it looks like there will be some vacancies in that row next year. In 212, we sit BEHIND the goal line. It makes no sense.

The Sharks squeak into the playoffs, win one playoff game and they do this? Can't wait to see the nice glossy, STH package that they mail us that declares us the "best fans in the NHL". Yeah, right. Thanks!

Yup, same here - Sec 201, row 13. Much better seats than 203/204, which presumably would now have higher prices.

I'm guessing my $35 seats will probably go to $37 (a 5.7% increase) - inline with the increases in 214-216 row 2-12 seats ($53->$56) .

Pretty sure I'm not renewing my season tickets. The games look just fine on my 65" plasma and the food's much cheaper at home.

If they plan to increase prices, can we at least get a legit organ player?

Wow. This is a big mistake by the Sharks. Yes, they sold out last season but that's due to their high season ticket holder rate. Secondary market for tickets was terrible. I know a lot of season ticket holders that couldn't sell their seats at cost, and were already going to give up their rights due to this.

Add the disappointing ending and rise in ticket prices, and I think we'll see season ticket holder base decrease significantly. Going to be a lot of empty seats next year.

Man, with a lot of people not renewing, goodbye Boyle, Marleau, or Thornton. One of them might have to go just to save them money.

Yup. My tix are in 213, row 8, Sharks attack twice end, on the aisle. I couldn't get near cost for weekday games last season. 2010-2011 season I could at least break even on those seats.

And now a price increase for this section? If I was able to go to more games I might be in, but I recently moved and sell 90% of my tickets on the secondary market.

I'm probably out unless our off-season moves look promising.

Crossing my fingers.
