Jim Lites: Free Tickets in JAN/FEB for 12 and Under

This seemed like some news that shouldn't be buried in a thread.

We have a pretty good range of ages in this forum so hopefully you have a child, sibling, niece/nephew, etc., that you can take advantage of this awesome promotion with.

Lites on the Ticket said they were still working out the logistics, but there's no way he puts this on the air unless he's certain it's happening. That would be a huge PR blunder to back out of this after talking about it, and that doesn't seem like a mistake Lites makes.

It's a really good idea to build a fanbase for the long term. Get them there when they're young and they'll keep coming back.

It's also a good way to force older parents to watch hockey again. Really quite smart.

Hm.
Getting the stadium full for the first couple games is really important.
Discounted concessions (and maybe free t-shirts?) would probably help a lot.
I think lowering prices significantly on things like car decals; flags; t-shirts; (things that work as advertisement) for the remainder of the season would do them a lot of favors as well.

this makes even more sense with the upcoming jersey/logo changes. get the old inventory out the door with really deep discounts and as free swag.

Here's what some other teams are doing:

Quote:
Mark Spector Sports ‏@SportsnetSpec

Penguins free concession items for 1st 4 games. Sabres 50% off at Team Store thru Game 1. WIll Cdn teams buck up?
50% off in the team store seems like a way the Stars should go. Clears the inventory as has been mentioned.

I don't think they do anything with concessions unless it's small ... free voucher for 1 thing. All those free kids are going to be begging for a drink or food. That's where they can make some cash.

Anyone know how to get the free child ticket for the Stars?

All set to get 2 tickets and a free one for my 5 year old... Their article says:

Quote:
Fans can visit DallasStars.com and click the "Kids Free" Ticket Offer logo on the front page of the website to purchase tickets.
There is No logo - just a buy tickets logo. And when you start to do that, there is no kid option...
