BUFFALO, N.Y. (August 9, 2012) --- The Buffalo Sabres today announced that 99% of season tickets have been renewed for the upcoming 2012-13 season and the number of season tickets has been capped at 15,400. This marks the second straight season the renewal rate has reached 99% and the season ticket waiting list – known as the Blue & Gold club – has grown to include over 3,000 members.

“We are proud and humbled by the record number of fans who renewed their season tickets for the 2012-13 Buffalo Sabres season,” said Sabres President Ted Black. “Of the 15,200 total season tickets sold in 2011-12, only 111 tickets –represented by 50 accounts – were not renewed.”

The cap of 15,400 season tickets is 200 more than last year’s capped number of 15,200 season tickets. The additional seats were filled by members of the Blue & Gold club.

“For the second straight season, we increased our season ticket base by 200 tickets to accommodate members of our Blue & Gold club,” said Sabres Vice President of Tickets and Services John Sinclair. “We’re also excited to offer our mini-pack purchasers the ability to select their games and seats through Tickets.com in real-time. This is a new program which allows our fans to see seat availability at time of purchase.”

Mini-Packs, which go on sale Sept. 5 to the general public, give fans the opportunity to create their own ticket package choosing to purchase tickets anywhere from five to 40 games. By purchasing a mini-pack, fans can save up to 10% off box office prices. Existing mini-pack holders will have the opportunity to renew their package the week of Aug. 27. Additionally, mini-pack holders will not pay a ticket service charge and will have the ability to purchase playoff tickets before they go on sale to the general public (based on availability).

Fans who wish to become members of the Blue & Gold Club can enroll at www.sabres.com. In addition to being added to the priority waiting list for Buffalo Sabres season tickets, members of the club get the opportunity to purchase individual game (including playoff games) tickets before the general public and also receive 10% off purchases at the Sabres Store.
