GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - As a thank you to the fans who gave them their largest attendance in four years during 2006-07, the Grand Rapids Griffins have drastically reduced the prices of their full-season ticket packages for the 2007-08 season. Fans who purchase a full-season ticket will save an average of 33 percent off the single-game ticket price and an average of more than $160 off the cost of last year’s full-season packages.
Along with substantially lower prices, the Griffins are offering an array of new benefits for both existing and new full-season ticket holders, including: the opportunity to purchase Detroit Red Wings single-game tickets before they are sold to the general public; four flex vouchers per seat, allowing holders to bring a friend; early admission to celebrity appearances and giveaways; ticket exchanges on selected Saturdays; discounted food and parking packages; 120 days same-as-cash financing through Lake Michigan Credit Union; and a personalized ID card offering discounts on goods and services from local businesses and restaurants.
In addition, the popular $199 Hot Seat section has expanded seven rows closer to the action, while previous season ticket benefits will be maintained for the new ticket packages.
Pricing for 2007-08 full-season ticket packages is as follows:
Section - Season Ticket Game Price - Single Ticket Game Price - Package Price
Rinkside - $19 - $25 - $836
Club - $15 - $20 - $660
