Chirps from Center Ice

A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins

2011-2012 AHL Season Ticket Comparison

It’s that time of year again, time for me to examine how much it costs someone to chirp at center ice for one year as a season ticket holder in each AHL building.

I did this last year. In keeping with the same context from last year, I am looking at how much it costs for a single season seat at center ice which is usually prime real estate to watch a hockey game. For the second straight year that I have been doing this the Penguins are the highest among in the East Division for seats at center ice. In the defense of the Penguins, parking at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza is free for everyone. For Canadian teams the price is listed as is which I’d assume is in CAD. You can do your own conversions to the USD if you wish.

Below is my research going highest to lowest:

Abbotsford – $1327.55
Houston – $1,050*
Oklahoma City – $1,040
Bridgeport – $1,026
Toronto – $988
Lake Erie – $874
St. John’s – $874**
Connecticut – $864
Texas – $840
Charlotte – $820
Wilkes-Barre / Scranton – $800
Adirondack – $780
Peoria – $760
Grand Rapids – $756
Milwaukee – $751
Manchester – $750
Chicago – $720***
Hamilton – $720****
San Antonio – $720
Rockford – $680
Hershey – $660
Syracuse – $646
Albany – $660
Binghamton – $555.75
Portland – $551
Norfolk – $550
Worcester – $550
Providence – $540
Springfield – $456
Rochester – $380

* – 38 games for the price of 30
** – only team without season ticket information listed. Price is based off of a $23 / game ticket for 38 games.
*** – price based off of 30 games and it comes with a bunch of good stuff.
**** – another team without full season price listed. Number based off of double their 20 game flex plan.

Make your own comparisons to your team versus your rival and Wilkes-Barre. Also, keep in mind that the AHL reduced its schedule this upcoming season from what was 40 home games to 38 home games.

Keep chirpin’. Go Penguins.

    There isn’t any type of conversion between US/CAD dollar, it’s pretty much even. Cool to see Rochester listed in last at something and it not be a bad thing!
