In Post 1460...Methinks The Senators Are In Trouble, I parsed some stuff from the Ottawa Citizen that said that the Sens, Ottawa's NHL team, are papering the house at a level only seen in non hockey markets.
This papering [giving away tickets] is not happening in Toronto, at least not for the Toronto FC, the Major League Soccer time in the Big Smoke.
In Richard Starnes' column in Saturday's Ottawa Citizen he wrote that the club has sold all the 16,000 season tickets they have to sell and are holding back 4,500 tix for single game sales. Not bad, considering the season doesn't start 'til March 27 of next year. Also they are re doing the turf at BMO Stadium, going from artificial turf to green, green grass.
