Growth among the Columbus Blue Jackets isn't uncommon. Especially after their great season.
One area where the growth has been staggering is in the area of season tickets. The team has upwards of 10,000 season tickets according to Cameron Scholvin, the Blue Jackets' senior vice president and chief revenue officer.
That is an increase of over 1,000 tickets. A great development for a team that has had trouble packing seats in the past.
“The momentum has carried on during the offseason,” Scholvin said to the Columbus Dispatch. “Our existing customers want more, and our new customers want to come in. They see the success on the ice, and they see the future of this young team — what (president of hockey operations) John Davidson and (general manager Jarmo Kekalainen) are putting together — and it’s something people want to be a part of.”
Not to mention the team is also being contacted by multiple sponsors about new opportunities.
As fans flocked to games at the end of last season, the team had plenty of momentum behind it. Now they are turning it into a tangible amount of tickets. Nationwide Arena's atmosphere will be better for it.
