Chiefs Rank High In Season Ticket Renewals
JOHNSTOWN, Pa. - The Johnstown Chiefs, ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Colorado Avalanche and Columbus Blue Jackets, and the AHL's Lake Erie Monsters and Syracuse Crunch, announced today that the team ranked third in season ticket renewals among ECHL teams for the week ending April 24, 2009.
"We had a great first week of season ticket renewals and it, once again, proves how dedicated an enthusiastic our fan base is. That said, we're only at ten percent of our overall season ticket goal so there is much work to be done before October," said Chiefs general manager and vice president Bill Bredin.
Chiefs season tickets officially went on sale on Monday, April 20 and in five days 86 full season ticket packages were renewed. Only the Wheeling Nailers and Bakersfield Condors renewed more season tickets over the same period. The league average for renewals last week was 44 season tickets. Johnstown also had five new season ticket packages sold last week for a total of 91 season ticket packages sold.
"Last week definitely showed how excited our fans are to have hockey in Johnstown again this season. With the response we got, I see no reason why we shouldn't meet our goal of renewing 90 percent of our season ticket base," said Chiefs director of communication and customer relations Ray Schmitt.
