Sabres Increase Season Ticket Prices For 2013-14

In a letter mailed to season ticket holders, the Sabres announced that they'll be increasing season ticket pricing for next season.

From VP of Tickets and Service John Sinclair:

"Before next season, one necessary change we'll be making is increasing the average price of our tickets by roughly 4% across all ticket levels and seat locations.  As part of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement with our players, all teams must produce revenue primarily through ticket sales, in order to keep the stability of the league and its franchises strong."

Sinclair also said the team expects the average season ticket price to remain ranked in the bottom five in the league, as has been the case for the past six seasons.

Season ticket holders will also be asked to pay reduced prices for three preseason games, and as a bonus they'll receive a Rochester Americans game -- to be played at First Niagara Center -- at no extra charge.

Tonight is this season's finale -- Fan Appreciation Night -- against the New York Islanders.

Someone half-jokingly trolled my twitter feed & said that’s the price of having a good team like the Wings in the building more often.  :->
