Great post Blacksox!!
Your research is amazing.
So we our one of the lowest prices.
Unfortunately, there will still be a few that will find some reason to complain.

Other than seating location Blacksox, did your research indicate what was included with the Platinum ticket price? I believe some teams include exclusives (early entrance, premium swag, and events). Perhaps Niagara's prices are cheaper because they don't include other items?

In another post, I will highlight some of the perks or benefits – attached to those OHL teams that designated seats (MC Section 113, 114, 115) as “premium”. I'm not sure you'll be overly impressed, maybe maybe not...
As an example, Oshawa’s Premium seats ($979.00) key additional features for enhanced game experience are:
<> In-seat service – Food and beverages can be purchased through your server
<> Convenient location in front of Prospects Bar and Grill Restaurant.
<> Padded seats with built-in drink holders
<>Extra wide seats – approximately 22” wide with plenty of leg room.


However, in my opinion, the bigger issue is that some organizations designate the best seats in the house as “premium” by adding some perks - sure it’s nice, but the seat location now becomes significantly more expensive. Perhaps, pricing the average fan (maybe Mr and Mrs NiceDawg) out of that location?

Windsor, for example, has made that section (MC 113, 114, 115) very exclusive, essentially corporate seats ($1400) targeting local companies with deep pockets – and less for the average fan looking for an affordable seat in an ideal location.

What if the IceDogs, re-zoned the Meridian Centre and made Sections 113, 114 and 115 premium seats – added some perks and significantly raised the prices? I think we know the answer to that

Speaking on behalf of NDawg Inc., added perks and a higher price wouldn't scare us away. My point was, Niagara doesn't offer those extras, which is probably why they can keep the prices lower. I know people complain about getting the same licence plate holder as a STH "gift" but considering you pay for it anyhow, who cares?

I will definitely post some more of the perks teams offer, but you’re going to see that some don’t offer anything special to the premium seats and several do – that you may or may not be impress enough to justify paying the inflated price.

In terms of marketing, selling tickets and getting fans into the MC – the IceDogs have chosen to keep the premium seats affordable as opposed to adding perks and making them expensive / exclusive. As far as their preferred direction, pretty difficult to argue with the route the IceDogs have chosen - when you look at the yearly attendance numbers in comparison to the rest of the league. Maybe some team should follow suite.

There you go, someone will indeed find reasons to complain.
To the hell with the extra perks!!
I go to the MC to watch some exciting hockey with more than reasonable prices in a view/seat I love.
Who cares about the wasted perks which jack up prices.
I'll buy something on my own if I want.
Great job Icedogs management on ticket prices!!

You're right. That does sound like complaining. Re-read my post maddog I am agreeing, we don't NEED extra perks and that's why the seat prices are low. Not everyone who replies to your emails or makes a point is against you.

Agreed

If they jacked the prices in premium 114 seats where I sit and gave me some extra perks ... I highly doubt I would value the perks compared to the price they would charge ... so I wouldn?t renew in that section.

I have people on both sides of me who I think are ?deep pocketed? corporate seats ... they maybe show up to no more than five games total each .... and that?s in years where the IceDogs are serious contenders... when they do show up they generally don?t even stay for the whole game either.
