Winnipeg Jets Change Policy For Ticket Waiting List

from Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press,

As they opened their 8,000-place waiting list Friday -- about 1,400 spaces were available when the process began -- the Jets announced that in the future, it will be a perk for waiting-list customers only to buy tickets through the exchange website.

"Our goal was to give back to these people on our paid waiting list, many people who have been with us two or three years now," Jets director of ticket administration Mitch Brennan said Friday. "Those people have been very loyal to us for a few years and in listening to what many of those customers said they wanted, it's a perk we wanted to give back to them."

The initial fee is a non-refundable $50 per seat to join the waiting list, then every subsequent summer, it's $100 to stay on the list, with that annual fee applied to any eventual season-ticket purchase.
Previously, those waiting-list customers received discounts on merchandise, access to MTS Centre event ticket offers, an invitation to the exclusive Winnipeg Jets wait-list open practice and access to some box-office last-minute ticket availability.

By now restricting the official ticket-exchange website to waiting-list customers, the team many be sending potential ticket buyers to other unauthorized resellers, websites or even scalpers.
The move won't be popular with some past regular customers who acquired tickets through the official exchange site.
