Want season tickets for the Florida Panthers? Want them cheap? How about extremely, extremely cheap? You're in luck. The Panthers announced during Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals that they are offering a ridiculously good deal for 500 season ticket packages.
You can buy season tickets for the Panthers for just $7 a game. This package includes tickets to 44 games as well as tickets to four concerts which will include a mix of music and comedy acts. You'll also get free parking. Oh, and a free jersey. That's it, but isn't that enough?
Excluding the free concerts, parking and jersey, the deal boils down to roughly $300 for 44 games. Now that's a deal that will make plenty of fans from around the NHL jealous.
It's really no surprise the Panthers are pulling out all the stops to attract fans considering they finished last in the NHL with just 36 points in 48 games this past season. Despite the team's record, fans still showed up in decent numbers according to the figures on ESPN. You should always take these numbers with a grain of salt, but ESPN lists Florida as having an average attendance of 16,991 per game (99.7% full) during the 2013 season.
