An across the board hike of roughly 5% has been approved by the board of directors of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Ltd. after a two-year freeze coming out of the lockout. Prices for 2007-08 will range from $37 to $182 for season-ticket holders, slightly more for the few thousand seats that are on public sale.
“We’ve spent a good deal more off the ice since last year,” said Richard Peddie, president and CEO of MLSEL. “We have expanded our coaching staff, there are travel costs and it has become more expensive for everything from player insurance to turning the lights on at the ACC for a game. We also have to pay 900 employees every game night.”
