Fans Flock to Fang Fair
false

Nashville,  Tenn.  (September  10, 2005) ” The Nashville Predators sold over  9,200 single-game tickets for the 2005-06 NHL season on Saturday, the club's  highest-ever single-day tally, thanks in part to the 2005 Fang Fair at  the  Gaylord  Entertainment  Center.   After  the  box office closed on Saturday,  less than 1,000 seats remained for the Predators' regular-season opener against the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday, October 5.

"The fact that we set a single-day ticket sales record and are close to selling  out  our  home  opener  is  a tribute to hockey fans in and around Nashville," said Steve Violetta, the Predators' executive vice president of business affairs.  "It is just the latest example of the pent-up demand for Predators  hockey  in  this market, and the expectations that our fans have that this will be a special season."

A limited number of tickets for opening night are being held for future season-ticket  sales.   The  only way for fans to guarantee tickets for the October  5  opener  is to purchase a season-ticket plan.  Eleven-game plans (which include tickets to opening night) start as low as $100.

Approximately  3,000 fans came down to Saturday's Fang Fair.  The event featured  a number of interactive attractions, including autograph signings with  Predators  Paul Kariya and Dan Hamhuis, a question-and-answer session with  the  Predators' coaching staff and appearances by GNASH and the Puck Patrol. Hockey  fans had the chance to tour the Predators' dressing room, shoot the puck on the GEC ice and listen to live music. Fans who purchased tickets  when the doors opened were met at the box office by Predators Adam Hall, Darcy  Hordichuk and Jordin Tootoo as well as team broadcasters Pete Weber and Terry Crisp.

Predators individual game ticket prices range from $10-$69. They may be purchased  at the Gaylord Entertainment Center box office, all Ticketmaster outlets,  which  include  Kroger,  Tower Records and Hecht's, or by calling (615) 770-PUCK. Tickets may also be purchased at www.ticketmaster.com. A service and handling charge applies to all tickets purchased through Ticketmaster, except for tickets purchased at the GEC box office.

The  Predators'  2005-06  season  features a number of different ticket specials  including,  new  weekday pricing for individual game purchases as well  as the creation of a Family Zone. Prices in October and November will be  $5-$10 lower for weekday games than for weekend dates. The Family Zone, located  in  Sections  320-322,  will  feature  $15  seats  available on an individual game basis.
