Predators to unveil new plan for single-game ticket sales Friday

Thursday, July 26, 2012 at 5:21pm

The Nashville Predators will announce Friday morning a new approach to single-game ticket sales.

Seats for 34 of the 41 regular-season home games will go on sale to the general public Aug. 4. That coincides with the franchise’s tax-free weekend, annual Skate of the Union event and other festivities.

Tickets for the other seven contests, considered 'premium' games, will be available only to those who attend the Skate of the Union at Bridgestone Arena and purchase certain ticket packages. Presumably one or two games against Detroit and possibly the first visit by former defenseman Ryan Suter, now with the Minnesota Wild, on Saturday, Dec. 1, will be among those premium contests.

A special pre-sale of single-game tickets available only to season ticket holders began Wednesday and will continue until the general sale commences.

In recent years, the Predators have introduced variable pricing based on the opponent and/or date. Last year only the first 21 contests were available at the start of single-game sales.

This represents a new approach.

As much money as the Davidson County taxpayers money is used to fund the Predators, we should get some free tickets!

Parnell3rd... You need to better educate yourself on the Preds deal with Metro. The 41 regular season home games generates millions in sales tax and other fees each season, with a large percentage coming from people like me who live outside Davidson County. Bottom line: Preds get a portion of what they generate, plus addition funds to maintain "your" arena! Plus, they are consistently putting a quality product on the ice year after year. Compare this to the Titans... You might just be surprised at how much they actually, when compared to the product they are putting on the field!

Cookeville Fan - Unfortunately there is no trickle down. Our taxe continue to rise while Dean and other politicians use our tax money to feather their own nests.

P.S. Cookeville Fan - You refer to sports play as a product and technically that is correct; maybe we should build a theater for the "Rockettes" and the "Blue Man Group" as they deliver a "Product" as well.
Neither the Preds or the Titans are self sufficient. Taxpayer dollars are pumped into their upkeep annually. Additionally, there is a gigantic push to build a stadium for a minor league baseball team of the Pacific Coast League (PCL), and the Triple-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, The Nashville Sounds. hat's wrong with that picture? They now play at Greer Stadium which is a nice venue for an AAA team. Metro government is steadily building debt that the taxpayer will be responsible for long after the politicians have moved on to greener pastures. Walk like an Athenian.
