BOSTON -- For the first time since 1988 there is a waiting list for Boston Bruins season tickets, the club announced Friday afternoon.
The Bruins have reached their capacity for the 2011-2012 season in the loge and balcony (12,000 seats) and the waiting list already has 111 accounts (250 seats). This is the earliest in a calendar year the Bruins have reached this capacity.
“It’s great. It shows the demand for our season tickets,” said Bruins vice president of sales and marketing Amy Latimer. “Our team performance has certainly helped make the fans come back.”
The Bruins ended the 2010-2011 regular season having sold out 71 consecutive home game, which is the first time since 1972 the Bruins have done so.
It just so happens the last time the Bruins won the Stanley Cup was in 1972.
The price to get on the waiting list is $100 deposit per seat. There are benefits that come along with that, including additional offers for Bruins tickets and other Garden events.
