Following input from stakeholders and considerable deliberation, we have now established a plan for distribution of gameday tickets at home games for the first part of the 2020-21 season.
Until allowable seating capacity is increased from 150 spectators, tickets will be offered, in priority sequence, to players’ families, billet families, and season ticket holders.
For each game, approximately 40% of tickets will be earmarked for families and billets. We think this is fair given the considerable investment made by each, especially since current circumstances have forced us to a pay-to-play model. The remaining tickets will be assigned to season ticket holders on a rotation until each season ticket holder has had the opportunity to purchase tickets to attend a game.
Season ticket holders who have been assigned tickets for a game will have until 48 hours before game day to confirm and pay for their tickets, failing which those tickets will be re-allocated. The Season Ticket Holder will then have to wait for their next turn in the rotation for the opportunity to purchase their tickets for a game. Assuming the seating capacity and schedule remain unchanged, season ticket holders will have the opportunity to attend 1 game before Christmas, and a maximum of 4 regular season games.
Season ticket holders will be contacted in the coming days to inform them of what game they have been assigned to, with fans selected for this Saturday’s game vs Humboldt contacted first. Tickets are $20/seat. Payment options and details will be explained at that time.
The Bruins want to thank the public for their patience and understanding. Unfortunately, the current hard cap of 150 spectators regardless of facility size and ability to accommodate health and safety protocols prevents us from implementing a solution that satisfies all of our dedicated fans. We will continue to make our case to the relevant authorities for an increase in attendance to the maximum amount that can be accommodated while still maintaining physical distancing which, in the case of Affinity Place, would allow for approximately 600 spectators to safely watch hockey this season.
