2011-12 AHL Ticket Prices

Barons Fans in OKC. Photo courtesy of Steven Christy Photography. All rights reserved.

When Scott looked in on the attendance problems in Oklahoma City, the comments focused mostly on ticket prices at the Cox Center.  A sampling of those comments show that the locals think the Barons lack affordable tickets, especially considering how new the Oklahoma City market is.

I live in OKC and ticket prices are simply too high. This is development level hockey and even I, a rabid hockey fan, cannot afford to get my family to games...

Ticket prices are huge. Anything in the upper deck should be $10 period. The rest could be dropped a bit but I think Ozman is right – who’s gonna spend $150 for a family of 4 to sit up close?

I’m an OKC resident, avid hockey fan/coach/player and make a decent living. Can’t afford decent seats at a minor league hockey game. Not for a family of four...

I decided to compare the Barons individual game ticket prices to the rest of the AHL.  I surveyed team sites, and when necessary Ticketmaster,  to come up with the pricing table below.  I've broken the table down by conference, as I assumed the more populous northeast, with more established hockey markets, would have more expensive tickets overall.  The table is sorted by the lowest-price ticket available.

Team Location Lowest Highest NHL Affiliate
St. John's IceCaps* St. John's, NL  26 38 Winnipeg Jets 
Providence Bruins  Providence, RI  24 36 Boston Bruins 
Springfield Falcons  Springfield, MA  23 37 Columbus Blue Jackets 
Syracuse Crunch  Syracuse, NY  21 25 Anaheim Ducks 
Binghamton Senators  Binghamton, NY  20 23 Ottawa Senators 
WBS Penguins  Wilkes-Barre, PA  18 40 Pittsburgh Penguins 
Manchester Monarchs  Manchester, NH  18 32 Los Angeles Kings 
Hershey Bears  Hershey, PA  18 26 Washington Capitals 
Worcester Sharks  Worcester, MA  17 33 San Jose Sharks

Adirondack Phantoms  Glens Falls, NY  12 26 Philadelphia Flyers 
Connecticut Whale  Hartford, CT  12 25 New York Rangers 
Norfolk Admirals  Norfolk, VA  12 17 Tampa Bay Lightning 

Overall, my assumption was correct.  The teams in the northeast do have more expensive ticket prices.

This chart was created using Ticketmaster's arcane interface, so there may be mistakes.  Please let me know if any of these single-game ticket prices are incorrect in the comments.  I'll update them as quickly as possible.

Thanks to the alert WBS Pens fan for the e-mail stating that the lowest walk-up price is $18, not $30.
