from waymoresports.com The schedule has increased to 16 games from 14, giving each team eight home dates. The Rock, who averaged 16,164 fans at the Air Canada Centre last season, have begun their season-ticket drive. Prices rise $5 for most seats; youth seats are staying the same. The most expensive seat becomes $40 on a season package. Youth single-game tickets start at $7. ``With the dollar being weaker, we have to make sure we recoup our costs,'' team president Brad Watters explained. ``I don't think we're pricing ourselves out of the market. We still want to be the best value for professional sports in the city. A family pack is still under $100.'' My season tickets: 2000 - 6 games x $20/game = $120 x3 2001 - 7 games x $25/game = $175 x4 2002 - 8 games x $30/game = $240 (x6?) Even though season ticket prices have doubled in 2 seasons, it's still (by far) the best value around. The Rock look to be in good shape for next season, because even more people are likely to attend. I believe the Rock's popularity is still on the rise. This is just the beginning. 2002 will be another sussessful season for the Rock.
