The team also announced today the introduction of demand-based pricing, which dynamically adjusts the price of individual tickets based purely on demand, which can be affected by rivalries, day-of-week, and marquee teams or superstar players coming to Xcel Energy Center. Single-game ticket prices will be fixed at the regular prices listed below through September 30. Beginning October 1, all remaining seats will be subject to demand-based pricing. From August 20 through September 30, regular season single-game ticket prices for the 2011-12 season will range from $26 to $98, the same as last season (Facility fee and Ticketmaster charges not included).
“The new system will adjust pricing for single-game tickets up or down, based on demand,” said John Maher, Vice President of Brand Marketing. “This system will reward fans who purchase their tickets early for the high-demand dates and opponents.”
