Flyers’ Dave Scott says fans ‘have been through a lot;’ most season-ticket prices won’t be increased
The Philadelphia Flyers are not raising most of their season-ticket prices for 2022-23, the club announced Monday.
In a news release, the Flyers said Dave Scott, the team’s governor, emailed season-ticket holders and told them there will be no increase for all non-premium tickets, which account for nearly 90% of the Wells Fargo Center.
The Flyers are 15-22-8 and next-to-last in the eight-team Metropolitan Division. Home attendance has dwindled, and less than half the seats at the Wells Fargo Center were filled for their last game, a 3-1 win over Winnipeg on Feb. 1.
“From COVID shutdowns to disappointing results on the ice, our fans have been through a lot over the last couple of years, but they’ve stuck with us, so there won’t be any price increases on any non-premium season tickets for 2022-23,” Scott said in the email to fans.
Scott, whose injury-riddled team has endured 10- and 13-game losing streaks this season, added that, as he and general manager Chuck Fletcher said recently, “everything is on the table to get our team back on track, and I’ve told Chuck that we’ll commit whatever resources are necessary to get this right. Our fans like you deserve no less.”
The Flyers are 16th in the 32-team NHL in paid home attendance (16,900 per game), and 22nd in the percentage of seats filled (86.5), according to ESPN.
