Minnesota has been one of our peers in the Bad Team, Empty Gym Club. But Wolves owner Glen Taylor is trying to fix part of that.
You can buy a season ticket for as little as $5 a game — $215 for the season — next season. About 4,700 of those tickets will be available for the upper-deck corner sections.
Lower level tickets — corner “Player Section” areas — will be available for as little as $15 a game. Tickets behind the baskets that sold for $25 this season will be $20 under “Early Bird” pricing, which requires purchase by July 1.
The team is also introducing a no-interest nine-month payment plan. For two $5 season tickets, that’s $46 a month. For two $15 lower-level season tickets, that’s $71 a month.
Wholly commendable, and likely smart. By comparison, as of today I believe the cheapest Kings season ticket is something like $42.50 a pop. (Correct me if I'm wrong.)
The Maloofs recently said they'd be looking at ways to get more fans in the building. Looking to Minnesota as an example would be a fantastic start.
