Softer ticket resale market?

spring break

Spring break is a reason for part of it. I posted last week against the Clowns (#1 in Country) that 10% of the seats were empty, and today it was about 20%. There were empty seats spread through out the arena. There have been comments in the last half of the season about how difficult it was to resell tickets for face value without adding in CC donations, and I've personally experienced that.  The box score shows an attendance of 10,125 (which is tickets sold and not butts in seats).

A good bunch of students+the band stayed.  Hope they are back 2nite.

 Many season ticket holders have 6+ seats in their families. They generally use two of those seats and try to sell the others to get their donations plus extra seat costs back. They've become tough to sell this year. Let some of those seats go to people on the waiting list and the arena will look more full.

Definitely need the students+band back, they are more vocal than the rest of us fans, and help to maintain a strong home court advantage. That band is terrific!

Most of the playoff ticket money goes to the NCHC anyway, not UND or the Ralph.

We're really reaching for things to complain about if people are complaining about Jody's job performance. They must have hated all the destination games and regionals as well, since the REA is the driver for those happening. 

Sounds a bit like we have a fire everyone group

Shorter beer lines, shorter bathroom lines, more leg room, cheaper tickets.

I love Hockey. I love Sioux Hockey. But this was a tough team to love. It’s not a typical Sioux team. It’s not very physical. There is not a lot of finesse out there. Nobody really opening up the ice for others. We are missing players like Jost and others.  I was honestly feeling bored watching hockey at times at the Ralph. Never felt that before. Perhaps others felt the way I did at times. I don’t care who you are, a defenseman cannot be your most dangerous player. That is not going to generate fan buzz. We are a blue collar team, not very fun to watch. Still waiting for our supposed bigs to consistently play that way, Gersich, Gardener, Hoff, Janituinan, Mishmash, good players, but we need them to take steps, now, if we have a chance in the weeks to come. They have all had moments.  I like Nick Jones. I like the way he plays. He and Kawagucci look dangerous and are starting to click. Be interesting to see who elevates their game here.

It seems likely this trend will continue.  If they take away another section from the students as Schloss has mentioned as a possibility, that just creates even more supply for the non-student market.  I'm curious to see what the combination of a softer market and an unsuccessful year will do to season ticket renewals/sales.

That would be great. 

Hate to say it but some UND season ticket holders are "greedy" and buy the max amount just to sell extras.

A little less demand in my opinion isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Great point.  Having more new blood in the season ticket holder population that actually attends games on a regular basis would be a positive.
