New Division In Order To Increase Revenue

via Tripp Mickle at Sports Business Journal (paid sub.),

The NHL is proposing the creation of an enhanced club services division that will share business practices in hopes of increasing league revenue by at least $85 million over the next five years.
Teams would be asked to help each other boost revenue by sharing business practices.
The proposal, which will be brought before the board of governors for a vote on June 20, calls for the creation of four account teams that will work with eight clubs each. Like the NBA’s team marketing and business operations department, the group will be designed to help those clubs maximize ticket and sponsorship sales, team sources said.
The NHL acknowledged that there is a proposal but declined to discuss it in advance of the board of governors meeting.
