300s and 400s Level Season Tickets Are Actually Cheaper This Year
Yes you read that correctly. The price for season tickets in the 300s and 400s levels at Madison Square Garden is actually cheaper this year than last year.
But Eric, you told us in March that ticket prices went up $2 in the 400s and $3 in the 300s!
Yes I did say that. And you’re right. The price per ticket did go up. What I didn’t realize at the time was that the total price for the entire season’s worth of tickets would actually be cheaper. Because there will be no home preseason games this year, Rangers season ticket subscribers are only paying for 41 games instead of 44.
Let’s do some math!
Last season, a ticket in the 400s was $37. Multiply that by 44 games and you get $1628 for a full season. This year, a ticket is $39. Multiply that by only 41 this year and you get $1599. That’s $29 less than last season. The same goes for the 300s level. A center ice season ticket last season cost $2640 versus only $2583 this season. Everywhere else in the 300s cost $2464 last season. This year it’s only $2419.
400s > $29 discount
300s corners > $45 discount
300s center ice > $57 discount
So all of the people complaining about the increased ticket prices forcing them to drop their season subscription or “forcing out the true fans,” please stop. You’re actually getting a discount.
