    Default Shama: Results Mixed on U Season Tickets

    per Shama:

    In addition to Whalen, Coyle made another high profile hire earlier this year when he named Bob Motzko head menís hockey coach. Motzko, 57, made a name for himself leading the St. Cloud program for 13 seasons including a Frozen Four appearance in 2013.

    Motzkoís hiring, though, hasnít so far been enough to prevent a slide in public season ticket sales. As of June 21, total accounts were 1,636, with 4,644 tickets sold. That compares with figures of 1,900 and 5,352 as of June 21, 2017. The Gophers sold 5,502 public season tickets for the 2017-2018 season.

    A $100 decrease in pricing in one seating zone at 3M Arena at Mariucci has been offered to incentivize public season ticket buyers.

    With an overall record of 19-17 last season, the Gophers didnít qualify for the NCAA Tournament. Fan apathy was alarming with large numbers of seats empty in the arena. The record and disinterest were painful for a program long billed as ďPride on Ice.Ē

    Go Gophers!!

    Many of the fans pay for season tickets for more than one sport. The event of the Scholarship funding has forced people to make decisions as to how much they want to spend. When people started getting out of habit of attending games whether it be football, hockey or wherever, and you're not winning, its hard to get them back. No difference than a retail store when trying to maintain a customer base.
