The Ottawa Renegades will get a firm measure tomorrow of how skeptical their fan base has become when the club offers supporters a two-for-one deal on next year's season tickets.

With the Renegades coming off a 7-11 CFL season, current season-ticket holders and new subscribers must shell out $400 (plus taxes and surcharges) for a pair of seats anywhere between the 25- and 55-yard lines on the south side of Frank Clair Stadium, or in sections C, D, F and G of the north side.

The one-day offer would yield about $450 in savings off the traditional purchase of two season tickets.

"It's a tremendous value," team president Lonie Glieberman said. "It's like a one-day furniture sale. It's also a way to give families an affordable way to get tickets, and it's a great way for companies to buy tickets for business purposes."

About 5,500 to 6,000 seats are for sale, at four movie theatres: the Coliseum in the Bayshore area, Silver City in Gloucester, Star Cite in Gatineau and Galaxy Cinemas in Barrhaven
