Cyclones Drop Ticket Prices

January 28, 2008 - ECHL (ECHL) - Cincinnati Cyclones News Release

CINCINNATI, Ohio - The Cincinnati Cyclones, ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Montreal Canadiens and Nashville Predators, announced this afternoon that ticket prices for all remaining regular season home games have been discounted to $10 per ticket. The only exclusion are the VIP tickets (first two rows, which will remain at $22.50).

The Cyclones dropped the prices for seating in these same sections for January and attendance has increased 79 percent over January 2007. This included a crowd of 5139 for the January 6 win against Reading and Friday night's game, which had 5707 fans for the triumph versus Wheeling.

"We have been impressed with the fans response to discounted ticketing," Kristin Ropp, Vice President/General Manager of U.S. Bank Arena said. "With a first place team and the fun promotions we had in January, discounted tickets gave fans every incentive to turn out-and they did. Cyclones hockey is a fun evening for everyone and we want them to be able to come out, every night."

The Cyclones have increased attendance by 33.5 percent over the first 20 home games of a year ago and averaged 4201 for the four games at U.S. Bank Arena in January so far.

Group discounts are also available for groups of 30 or more. Tickets in these packages cost $8 each and must be purchased in advance of game day.

The Cincinnati Cyclones are next in action on Wednesday night (Jan. 30), when the Charlotte Checkers come to U.S. Bank Arena for a 7:30pm tilt. The latest news on the team and the webcast of the game can be heard at:
