Ticket prices next season

Any STH's hear anything on how much the tixs are going to be next year? Last year in the 400's it was 30$ a game with tax. I got a feeling they will be 35$ w/tax. Feel free to guess how much they will go up in all sections next season.

well, they went up about 14% last year, and over 20% the year before (because they took back the discount from the previous season and jacked prices up on top of that.) so my guess is add 12% to the prices for last year and that should be close.

invoices are probably coming out soon since in the past $$ was due like july 1st (make you pay when the free agency hype is the highest). but i'm expecting a 10-15% increase which i guess isn't terrible but it adds up.

Last year payments were due July 23rd.

And the lockout was supposed to keep ticket prices down.

yeah, funny how ticket prices have gone up almost 50% since the lockout, yet the rangers payroll has been cut nearly in half during that time. seem right to you?

It's about...

putting more money in the owners' pocket. Some of the suffered through years of losses to entertain us fans and now they're getting their reward.

I do believe that Rangers ticket prices in the 300s and 400s are still pretty reasonable. I had tickets in the 300s in the mid-late 90s and the price held steady for several years, and wasn't materially above the price in the early 90s. My only complaint then was the team sucked balls, which is one of the reasons why prices weren't raised for several years. I think it was when they decided to spend on Fleury, et al, that prices were increased.

It's actually funny...

that we have this thread. I stumbled upon some old tickets sitting in my desk drawer at work (and to show how pathetic I am, I found 8 unused tickets across two seasons). The tickets are in the 300s and in 02-03 the price was $40, and in 03-04 the price was still $40. Not bad.

That too--but it was sold to the public as a way of keeping down costs for everyone. And now the average salary is higher than before the lockout and I'm sure average prices are also up.

And the Dolans better take their heads out of the sand long enough to realize that a lot of their ticket holders (especially corporations) are hurting economically now.

Hopefully with them opening up in Europe they will be playing some preseason games there and we won't have to pay for 3 pre season MSG games. Wishful thinking.

My guess is that we need to support the losing team (Knicks) since they do not sell out.

That would mean, 63 a game, and assuming we have one preseason home game and only 40 regular season games, that means its 2583 for 2 seats, 1291.50 for 1. Not bad. we paid 2640 for 2 last year. Thats why I believe its 32.50 a seat. Theres no way theyre gonna charge LESS this season. I understand that they are getting reimbursed by the people orchestrating the Europe games, but even so.

Found some more tickets...

for the 01-02 season the prices were also $40 - so three years in a row at $40 for the 300s. Can't believe I found nearly $1,000 worth of unused hockey tickets. Argggh.

Have people had to let MSG know if they want to renew their seats yet?

While on topic... does anyone know how the mini-ticket packages worth? I'd like to go to 7-8 games a season. I live in the Port Jeff area, and I work nights so buying a full season's wworth wouldn't be too cost effective. Is it a tough package to get? I'd be curious to see if I need to get on a waiting list. To anyone whose done this.. did it work out well? Thanks.

I got on the waiting list for 2 mini seats in May 2007, and last I knew (around January) I was #220 on the list... so we'll see if I have to wait another year or not. more than likely.

If so, I can probably offer a few mini plans to yourself and others.

I may be looking to do the same. I have seats in Row A of the 300's and I'm looking to upgrade to row A of the 100's. I typically miss about 15 games due to work, so I'm going to try to sell about 15 games and end up paying about the same as I did last season, but with significantly better seats.

If I'm able to get my upgrade I'll probably post a few packages here.
