The Philadelphia Flyers introduced a new initiative over the weekend, which includes holding tickets that will be released on game-day.
The “Assembly Room Last Call” program will hold 200 standing room-only tickets until the game day. These tickets are dubbed “first dedicated day-of-game ticket option,” the organization notes, and are meant to make Flyers’ games more accessible. Fans can grab tickets for $25 in-person at the Wells Fargo Center box office or online at the team’s website starting at 9 a.m. This cheaper price, which was announced earlier this year, is the lowest available ticket price in the NHL.
“We understand that the Assembly Room attracts a segment of fans that may prefer to make more spontaneous decisions to attend a game, and the Last Call tickets ensure that these fans can access tickets securely on the day of the game without having to pay a mark-up on the secondary market,” the Chief Business Officer for the Flyers and the Wells Fargo Center Mike Shane said in a release.
“We also want to encourage a new, walk-up culture here at the Wells Fargo Center, particularly among our fans in the surrounding neighborhoods in South Philadelphia.”
The program officially launched on Saturday for the team’s home game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. They’re slated to take on the Hurricanes tomorrow, followed by games against the Canadiens, Maple Leafs, Bruins, and Capitals over the next week.
