Senators Reduce Prices for Nine Games and Add Five Metro Family Games

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 22, 2009) - The Ottawa Senators announced today two initiatives designed to make it easier and more affordable for fans and families to attend games for the balance of this season.

"The National Hockey League is more competitive than ever. Every game counts towards playoff contention," said Eugene Melnyk, owner of the Ottawa Senators. "I want our players to benefit fully from the home game advantage. The support, energy and atmosphere that our fans create at Scotiabank Place is vital to our team's success."

First, the club is eliminating the gold and silver game categories for games beginning Jan. 1, 2010. These games will now become bronze games, resulting in a decrease of 20 per cent for eight silver games and 30 per cent for one gold game. The eight games affected by the 20 per cent reduction in single-game ticket prices are: Jan. 3 vs. Philadelphia, Jan. 9 vs. Florida, Jan. 19 vs. Chicago, Feb. 4 vs. Vancouver, Feb. 9 vs. Calgary, Feb. 11 vs. Washington, March 27 vs. Florida, and April 10 vs. Buffalo. The single-game ticket prices for the Senators match-up against the Toronto Maple Leafs on March 16 will be reduced by 30 per cent.

Secondly, the club has added affordable Metro Family 4 Pack pricing to the following five games: Jan. 3 vs. Philadelphia, Jan. 5 vs. Boston, Jan. 21 vs. St. Louis, Feb. 9 vs. Calgary and March 2 vs. New York Rangers.

The Metro Family 4 Pack pricing includes four tickets, four hotdogs and four drinks for $99 (taxes included). The popular ticketing program, which was introduced this season, sold out all available tickets for its first six games.

"Today's initiatives provide additional affordable pricing options for our fans for the remainder of this season" said Cyril Leeder, president of the Ottawa Senators. "We believe these changes will make it easier for fans to attend Senators games."

Today's announcement follows the new initiatives announced last Thursday to help grow the season-seat base.

"Our fans are key to our success and have to be our top priority," added Leeder. "We presented a number of new benefits and reduced pricing to our season-seat holders last week and have introduced today's options with our casual buyer in mind. We also want to fill the building for the current year and provide the best possible atmosphere for our players and fans."

Fans who have already purchased tickets for the nine games, where prices have been reduced, will receive a refund for the difference in price.
