2016 Season Ticket Sales

2016 Season Ticket Sales

by Gub » Wed Dec 23, 2015 8:41 am

After an unbelievable season, and so many entertaining home games in 2015, I am wondering how the 2016 season ticket sales are progressing?
The REDBLACKS seem to be tight lipped on this. Has anyone heard any numbers from any reliable source(s)?

Not numbers as such, just a comment along the lines that they're further ahead than they were at this point last year.

It would not shock me if they sell 20,000 season tickets.

20k would be amazing. I'd personally be happy with 17-18,000.
I know a couple of people that only attended a few games last season who went out and got seasons tickets for 2016. If we get enough people who do the same, I think its feasible.

Not surprising... Great on field product. First class facility and best customer service practice... They will come.

Jeff Hunt said today that current seasons tickets sales were approximately 15,500.

In Ottawa, ticket sales are up from last season, which featured a 2,000-seat drop in season-ticket holders from the 17,000 or so from Year One. That drop was not unexpected. Today, Hunt figures there are about 15,500 season tickets or the equivalent in packages for 2016 – and there is plenty of time to sell more before the first home pre-season game on June 13.

I thought sales would be a little higher given the Grey Cup appearance last November. The good news is we've not lost any, and still some time to go. 16,000 would be nice.

Still time for another 1000 to be sold .

I also thought there would be a bigger interest after finally having a good entertaining record setting team .

Mind you I find the CFL off season falls off the radar and the league and the team need more outlets for spreading the hype than just these web sites .

They are preaching to the choir here and doing a good job at it . They need to get the sitting on the fence fan to spend there money on tickets .

As Scanlan says, the hockey season is over and thoughts turn away from the Senators and now on to football. With the mini-camp and lots of news the REDBLACKS are in the news, expect more season/mini packages to be sold in the next month. The the individual tickets go on sale 1 June.

In year One, 2014, with the honeymoon full on and a capacity crowd in the stands, the team struggled on the field but it didn’t matter. This is why it’s called a honeymoon.

Talked to my ticket rep today. It sounds like season tickets will be sent out before the end of the month. :rockin: :rockin:

Sounds like something they'd do. :thup:

I hope they send them soon. Last year, the Purolator thing was a bit of a mess. They need to give themselves some time to react.
