Blackhawks Establish Season Ticketholder Franchise Record

The Chicago Blackhawks announced today that for the 2008-09 season the organization has surpassed its previous franchise record of 13,425 season ticketholders established in 1994-95, during the inaugural campaign at the United Center. In addition, a near-capacity crowd is expected for tonight’s home preseason game against the Columbus Blue Jackets, marking the most tickets sold for a home preseason contest in franchise history.

“Chicago is a hockey city and this is a tribute to our great fans and their hunger for a return to the glory days of the Blackhawks,” Senior Vice President of Business Operations Jay Blunk said. “We would like to thank our fans for giving us their trust and support and remind them we never forget that excellence on and off the ice is what they richly deserve.”

Season ticket sales for the 2008-2009 Blackhawks season have increased 300% from October 2007 when the base was 3,400. The increase for the upcoming campaign marks one of the biggest one-year turnarounds in sports ticket sales history for a team that did not qualify for the postseason. However, it is important to note that season tickets are still available for the 2008-09 season by calling the Blackhawks at (312) 455-7000.

“Our players are very excited to play in front of a full house every night at the United Center and it’s our mission to reward these fans with a playoff-caliber team that keeps them on their feet all season.” Blackhawks General Manager Dale Tallon said.

Single game tickets are also available at chicagoblackhawks.com, by calling (312) 559-1212, at all Ticketmaster ticket centers, at the United Center ticket office and at HawkQuarters. Group tickets are available by calling the Chicago Blackhawks at 312-455-7000. The Blackhawks launch their four-game preseason home slate when they host the Columbus Blue Jackets at the United Center tonight at 7:30 P.M.
