Wild try to keep fans from bailing during lockout
The Minnesota Wild are offering season ticket holders 10 percent
interest in return if they keep their accounts paid in full during
the NHL lockout and don’t request a refund.
The Wild announced Monday they’ll credit those season ticket
holders for any canceled games, plus 10 percent interest on the
dollar value of tickets for the lost games. That can be applied
toward future games or subsequent season renewals. Credit will be
issued when a new collective bargaining agreement is reached
between the owners and players.
The lockout began late Saturday. The work stoppage is poor
timing for the Wild as much as any other NHL team. They’ve reported
the equivalent of about 4,000 new season tickets sold since stars
Zach Parise and Ryan Suter were signed on July 4.
