Lightning season tickets to increase an average of 7 percent
The Lightning announced Thursday that season tickets for next season will increase by an average of 7 percent.
The team said some tickets will increase by fewer than 2 percent. With the exception of Chase Club members, no season ticket member will see an increase of of more than $6 per game per seat from 2015-16 to 2016-17. Nearly 30 percent of all seats at Amalie Arena will be priced at $30 or less for season ticket members, with an entry level price point of $21 per game.
There will be no added restrictions next season for re-sale.
The Lightning says it has the third-lowest average ticket price in the NHL in 2015-16 ($49.33 per game). The team is also implementing a "Bolt for Life" program, a payment plan to allow season ticket members the chance to spread out their season ticket commitment over 12 interest free payments.
Also during the renewal process, members will have the opportunity to reserve seats for any potential home playoff game. Members will receive renewal packets from the team later this week.
