Ticket Pricing Adjusted For Stadium Series In LA

from Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider,

Ticketing updates for the January 25 Kings-Ducks Stadium Series game:

-The event is 80% sold out. The Kings and the National Hockey League expect the event to completely sell out by the week of the game. The Kings are hoping that the event sells out in advance of the week leading up to the game.

-The $249 dollar tickets have not sold well to this point. Per a Kings spokesperson, I have been told that the league has realized that it “missed the mark” in asking $249 per ticket in the Reserve Level, even if those seats contain some of the best views of the playing surface. Some of the $249 tickets will be adjusted to $199 and $189. Those who previously purchased seats for $249 in sections that will experience price drops to $199 and $189 will be refunded the difference between the two price points.

same thing for the big house game. if they really want to celebrate hockey and the fans of our state they should have had $20 tickets. $20,000,000 in ticket sales alone wouldn’t have been enough?

80% sold in a 50,000 seat stadium at those prices is not too bad….This adjustment should sell out the building, which is great for the LA market.

Actually, $20 per ticket in a 100,000-seat stadium would generate $2,000,000 in revenue, not $20,000,000.

OTC - don’t forget “service fees.” By my extremely hyperbolic math, that’s easily $20m
