Caps ticket demand, in e-mail form
It's not particularly newsworthy to note that there's a greater demand for Capitals tickets than Wizards tickets at this moment in time, but this e-mail to Pentagon employees from last week perhaps offers an amusing display of the difference.
Washington Capitals Military Night
Pentagon Services was given only 10 (ten) tickets for the Capitals' Military Night on Thursday, 4 March at 7 pm against Tampa Bay. Because we received so few tickets, only the first 5 eligible people in line will be able to purchase these tickets when we open on Friday, 26 Feb at 0900 (limit 2 tickets per person, cost $2 per ticket). To be eligible to purchase these tickets, you must be active duty Air Force assigned to the Pentagon (bring CAC Card if not in uniform). Our tickets are in Section 429, Row K, and regularly sell for $45 each.
Washington Wizards Military Night
The Washington Wizards host their next Military Night on Saturday, 27 March against Utah. Pentagon Services has 100 tickets to this event for $36 each. Our seats are Center Court in Sections 111 & 112, and regularly cost $150.00 each! These tickets go on sale starting Tuesday, 2 March, to our Air Force personnel assigned to the Pentagon. We will limit sales to 4 tickets per person while there is a line waiting. Any tickets remaining after the first day can be sold to any interested customers.
(Also, here's a glimpse at how the local teams' ticket prices compare, which I used in my print story on the Caps' recent ticket hike but never blogged. All numbers via Team Marketing Report.)
The average Nationals ticket cost $30.63 in 2009 (seventh in MLB).
The average Redskins ticket cost $79.13 in 2009 (10th in the NFL).
The average Capitals ticket cost $44.75 this season (21st in the NHL).
The average Wizards ticket cost $27.21 this season (28th in the NBA).
