The Capitals have announced their ticket plans, and there are a couple of interesting new options for people out there.
In addition to the old standbys of "Eagles Nest" ($10 tickets) and the "Family Four Pack" (4 tickets, hot dogs, sodas and hats for $96), the Caps have added a couple of new packages. Gone is the old student discount, replaced by the "Student Rush Night," for all Thursday and Friday games. $10 for any upper level ticket, $25 for any lower level ticket, available starting at 4 pm on game night.
Also available for the first time is a "Pack the House 6-Pack" of tickets for only $99. The stated intent of this package is to fill the Verizon Center with Caps fans, not fans from other teams. There is a "Rivals" package with games against Carolina, Pittsburgh (twice), Philadelphia, the Rangers, and the Maple Leafs. There is a "Saturdays" package, and an "Old-Time Hockey" package.
At least it looks like the Caps are finally trying to actually sell tickets to their own fans. Take note, Susan O'Malley.
