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.
