The Chicago Blackhawks finished their last season at the bottom of the Central Division and are hoping the 2018-19 season goes better. Fans will pay a little more for the chance to see if this comes true. Ticket prices are going up an average of four percent next year.
Blackhawk fans might not feel happy about the increase, but it’s typical of season ticket prices throughout the league. If you are a season ticket holder, expect to pay more.
If you’d like to get season tickets for the Blackhawks, here’s what you need to do.
Get on the Waiting List
The Blackhawks created a waiting list to provide an organized way to fairly accommodate the desires of all their fans to attend home games.
Fill out the Full Season Wait List which will require a $100 deposit that goes toward the expense of your tickets if and when you are able to buy them. It is not a guarantee that you will get tickets.
If you don’t want to fill out the form, you can call the sales department during regular business hours at 312-455-7000 or inquire by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In spite of the price increase, you will save money over the cost of buying individual tickets. Plus, you will have your same seats each time and will get to keep them if the Blackhawks make the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Wait for Contact From The Blackhawks Organization
An account executive will contact you once your name reaches the top of the waiting list. Make sure they have your current phone number and email address so the process is not unnecessarily delayed.
It’s not a speedy process. By some estimates, there are 17,000 people on the waiting list, and it may take over ten years or more before you can buy season tickets. It is worth putting your name in with your deposit if you are at all interested based on how long it may take before you can purchase tickets.
Plus Blackhawks fans are renewing their tickets at a rate of 99 percent, so there won’t be many openings year after year. And ticket prices aren’t cheap. The least desirable seat levels go for two, three, four thousand dollars per season. Better seats might cost double that amount.
Print Your Tickets
Should you get the chance to purchase season tickets form the Chicago Blackhawks, make sure you print them on quality material that won’t tear or wear out. You can have your season tickets printed on barcoded plastic card which fits easily into your wallet or you can wear it around your neck with a lanyard.
You don’t want to wait that long and spend that much money only to print your tickets on flimsy ink jet paper which might get damaged, lost or ruined.
Life can change a lot over ten years, so if you find yourself no longer able or interested in purchasing Blackhawks season tickets, you can always cancel your spot on the waiting list and receive your $100 deposit back or use it toward the purchase of an individual ticket.
Here’s to a New Season
Here’s hoping the Blackhawks have a better season next year and that you are one of the lucky ones who can watch every game from your own, regular seat. Go Blackhawks!
