FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – August 26, 2011
Capitals Single-Game Tickets Go On Sale Wednesday, Sept. 7
Team has recorded 106 consecutive sellouts at Verizon Center
ARLINGTON, Va. – Washington Capitals single-game tickets for the 2011-12 season go on sale Wednesday, Sept. 7, at 10 a.m. at 202-397-SEAT, on WashingtonCaps.com, at Kettler Capitals Iceplex and at all local Ticketmaster outlets, including the Verizon Center box office.
Verizon Center has been sold out for 106 consecutive Capitals games (including playoffs) and, for the second straight season, the Capitals sold out every home game. Single-game tickets are expected to sell out quickly.
The home season begins with Opening Night at Verizon Center presented by GEICO on Saturday, Oct. 8, against the Carolina Hurricanes. The Capitals will unveil their 2010-11 Southeast Division championship banner prior to the game, and fans will receive a magnet schedule presented by GEICO.
The Capitals will introduce dynamic pricing this season, a system that allows consumer demand to set the price that reflects the most accurate current market value. Similar to the travel and entertainment industries, fans who purchase their tickets early are more likely to get the best value. With dynamic pricing, the price of single-game tickets may fluctuate based on a variety of factors, including league standings, opposing team, rivalries, star players, day of the week and supply and demand. For example, games against the top teams in the league are anticipated to be in high demand, whereas it’s possible that early-season and week-day games experience a decrease in price. The system is designed to reward single-game buyers for purchasing earlier in the season
Among the ticket options available is the Washington Capitals Pregame All-Inclusive Package, which starts at $89 per package and includes a game ticket, a pregame all-you-can-eat buffet in the Dewar’s 12 Club, unlimited beer, wine and soda, a Caps hat and a Caps rally towel.
