Winnipeg Jets

For all those willing to discuss the possibility of this up and coming city having a team once more. Let's compare the pros and cons, shall we?

Discuss........

Pro Winnipeg has a well established hockey market.

Con MTS centre is too small, needs to ad some 2-3000 seats.


Pro Winnipeg isn't on any other market's territory.

It's only a matter of time before Winnipeg gets a team, and the NHL knows it. The league needs cities like Winnipeg for incoming revenue from fan support, unlike what they are getting in the southern US.

Steeves becomes a Jets believer

ST. Vital Coun. Gord Steeves has added his name to the chorus of Winnipeggers who believe this city can afford a National Hockey League franchise.

After reviewing a list of the gross ticket sales of all 30 NHL franchises, city council's community services boss said it's obvious that Winnipeggers would easily spend more to watch the NHL than fans currently do in a number of poorly performing U.S. hockey markets.

"The bottom seven drawing teams last season averaged under $600,000 per game in ticket sales revenue," Steeves said in a letter published in the Globe and Mail on Monday. "Winnipeg has a rink that seats 15,100 for hockey. If Winnipeg could average 14,500 fans per game at an average ticket price of $49, the team would average $710,500 per game in ticket revenue."
Like Steeves, most hockey observers believe fan support for the NHL would be stronger in Winnipeg than it currently is in several U.S. NHL cities. But questions remain about the strength of corporate support for pro hockey in Winnipeg, a city that boasts relatively few corporate head offices.

In a subsequent e-mail, Steeves pledged to delve further into the possibility of the NHL's return to Winnipeg once he returns from a short leave.

Steeves is temporarily absent from council due to a personal matter.

Is $49 what people usually pay to go to a hockey game? I never go so I have no idea, but that sounds expensive.

Hardly, considering that many go to casinos and bars and spend 10s of 100s of dollars. I would be willing pay this amount, but tickets here in Edmonton are so hard to come by.

Can't really do that. There is a rush when tickets go on sale at the beginning of the year, and are usually sold out in a short period. Trust me, if it were that easy, I would have gone to 5 games by now.

Let's not forget that have a team would also enhance the quality of life in the city by giving people another option for entertainment.

That was an average price and it sounds low to me. That being said I was in Chicago last week and the lower seat tickets were going for $140 and the upper tier tickets were $15. With Ticketmaster taxes the upper seats were $21 US.

I don't think you understand the process; it's not easy like you are making it sound. Even so, my company has season tix, so I can go to a couple games for free this year.

Ok, I've explained myself enough to the point where I don't feel like repeating myself. Let's leave it at that.
