According to the
Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Blackhawks are planning to raise
prices significantly next season. According to the story, the
average increase will be 16 percent, but some prices will increase
85 percent. The lowest priced tickets, $10 for a season ticket
holder, will increase 50 percent, according to the story.
The highest priced ticket, a $275 day of game ticket, will increase to $285. Eric Rabbers, described as a season ticket holder in the 300 (nose bleed) level was quoted as empathizing with the move: "especially in my section, the prices we were paying were pretty cheap."
Yeah, for that money, maybe they could actually put together a team that could make the playoffs. Duh!
