Blues will cut ticket prices

Wednesday, February 7, 2007

ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Blues ownership, which alienated fans by raising ticket prices shortly after purchasing the franchise that finished last overall in the NHL, announced Tuesday it will cut rates for next season.

The majority of the seats in the Scottrade Center will be reduced an average of eight percent.

"It has become very clear to us that this new pricing structure is the right thing to do," chairman David Checketts said. "We have learned a lot from our first seven months in St. Louis."

Season ticket prices for 44 games, including three preseason and 41 regular-season games, will range from $120 per game in the front row behind the glass to $7 per game in selected areas in the mezzanine level high end sections.

"It has been a goal of ours to reconnect with our fans," said Peter McLoughlin, CEO of St. Louis Blues Enterprises. "One of the loudest concerns we heard from over 1,300 respondents was about season ticket prices."
