The last time I stood at this podium to talk about hockey, it was to announce the cancellation of the season. I described it then as the saddest day that I have ever had in my career in hockey.
Today is a much better day.
Because today, we can finally get back to Flyers hockey, and that’s great news for our fans, our Club, and our League. I want to thank all those who have supported the Flyers during this very difficult time, and I make you this promise:
We intend to make the game we all love better than ever. The new Collective Bargaining Agreement provides a way for the NHL and its players to grow and flourish together, as partners, the way it should be.
What’s more, this partnership will benefit our fans, the people who have supported us so faithfully for so long. We intend to make hockey more affordable for you. We are reducing prices for all of our season ticket holders and have also created family sections with ticket prices of $20 for adults and $10 for kids. Our fans deserve to benefit directly from the cost controls that are part of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, and our ticket price rollback does exactly that.
