Windsor Spitfires (Platinum Club $1400.00) <>Unless the drinks are free in Crown Royal Platinum Club Lounge , I don’t see the value in a 1400.00 ticket price - just a huge money grab by the team at the expense of the best seat location in the arena
https://windsorspitfires.com/platinum-club


Sudbury Wolves <>Not much there for $676.00 Club Section ticket
https://sudburywolves.com/2020-21-season-tickets


Owen Sound Attack <> Nothing overly noteworthy for $689.00 ticket – not sure what VIP $769.00 gets you in perks though?
https://attackhockey.com/2019-20-sea...et-memberships


Ottawa 67s <> For $672.00 some CFL Redback perks are included
http://www.67smemberships.com/


Mississauga Steelheads <> Steelhead need to lower their platinum $701.00 HST included tickets to match the very reasonable Gold $565.00 HST included ticket prices. I think I found their problem.
https://mississaugasteelheads.com/season_tickets


Sarnia Sting <> I do like this: Complimentary Ticket Holder Breakfast; but not at the cost of a $785.00 platinum ticket
https://sarniasting.com/seasonticketpackages


Peterborough Petes <> Flip to page 2 “Season Ticket Membership Benefits” to see if they can interest you in a $914 ticket.
https://gopetesgo.com/season-tickets


Kitchener Rangers <> Scroll way down to RENEW TICKETS to be underwhelmed for $778.00
https://kitchenerrangers.com/season-ticket-holder


Guelph Storm <>Not much there for an $881.00 ticket and nothing different from the $687.00 and not more than an IceDog $569.00 ticket.
https://tickets.guelphstorm.com/even...season-tickets

Barrie Colts <> The $740.00 equivalent platinum seat makes no mention of any benefits. However, their Club Seats ($908.00) mentions multiple privileges (unspecified) – those seats are the first 5 rows of our Platinum sections, generally the most obstructed and least desirable seats by the majority of STHs are the most expensive seats.
https://barriecolts.ticketpro.ca/?la...ab_COLTS202021


Hamilton Bulldogs <> similar to the IceDogs perks
https://www.bulldogsseasons.com/


SSM Greyhounds <> Nothing mentioned, except a nice gesture by the City of SSM to offer everyone attending SSM games free parking at the GFL Memorial Gardens

Not sure but all the prices listed in Post#1 were matched up to the equivalent seat location of platinum seats in the Meridian Centre.

Blacksox, you’re not really comparing apples to apples. A lot of the prices you have listed for other teams are club seats. According to this https://www.niagarathisweek.com/comm...seats-on-sale/ our club seats are $1500 plus tax.

I do think the Icedogs season ticket prices are very reasonable but wanted to point out that your comparison with other teams really isn’t fair if you are including other team’s club seat prices but not including our club seat prices.

Sorry, but you couldn't be more wrong! Post #1 is exactly comparing apples to apples! Take some time to review and you'll see that.

No, comparing other teams club seats that include extra wide padded seats and a private lounge with our level 200 club seat section is comparing apples to apples.

Some of your comparisons are valid. Others are not. Just because the seats are in the same location as another team does not make the comparison valid.

If you are not willing to take the time to read and review post #1 and #11 - and see that the posted seat prices from other arenas are the equivalent to sections 113, 114, 115 and 104, 105 and 106 - then I apologize but there is nothing to discuss or debate here.

If I can make one last point…

Comparing the IceDogs club seats to Section 113,114, 115 (and 104, 105, 106) is so off base.

We have a lot of season ticket holders on this site, in those platinum sections. I’d be surprised if more than few of them would consider moving from their platinum seats to Club level seats – even if they were offered to them for $569.00.

The major difference between Niagara and the other OHL teams - the IceDog designated one of the least desirable locations (behind the net in the 200 level) and designated them club seats – they did not use the best seats in the house. The organization should be commended for doing that!

No way I would trade being in row G at centre ice for ?club seats? in the second level ... maybe for a game or two but not a lifetime of watching.

IMHO Blacksox? comparison is valid ... he is comparing the same sections of seating league wide .... the fact that they aren?t extra wide or padded is the least of my worries

As they say in real estate

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!

OntarioHockeyLeague @OHLHockey
"I don't think there are any bigger diehard fans than Niagara fans."

…we have been rewarded over the years with excellent season ticket pricing – and this year, a fair response to the pandemic for concerned season ticket holders.

Post #11 has been updated with all the STH perks available on each team’s website.


For the last one, I wanted to highlight the North Bay Battalions.

At every IceDogs home game, there is a small percentage of tickets that go unused by STHs. However, North Bay has implement an amazing program to not only get those seats filled – but more importantly reach out to those in the community on fixed or limited income so they can enjoy a complimentary junior hockey game. I would LOVE to see the IceDogs do something similar (next season).
