    It's supply and demand. If it wasn't there, I'm sure it wouldn't have increased the much.

    Oilers - 2016/17 $1,950.00 per seat for the year - $43.34 per seat/game over 45 games. This upcoming year my price per seat is around $1,985 after the increase less my 2% discount for paying by Sept 1 so approx. $44.12 for 2017/18
    Eskimos - 2017 $448.72 per seat according to my Eskimos account (I think I had a credit from last years playoff game carry forward, I dropped the playoff game this year too) - $44.87 per seat/game over 10 games.

    I know I'm comparing apples to oranges because I buy the cheapest tier of seating for hockey but on a per seat/game basis the Eskimos are the most expensive ticket I buy, which makes their perks even worse when comparing it to the Oilers organization.
    Bronze seats with the Eskimos work out to just over $25 dollars per game which is as much as the most expensive seats the Oilkings offer. I noticed you mention no increase in the Oilkings tickets from last season to this upcoming one, was there one when they moved from Rexall to Rogers?

    Didn't increase mine, I actually paid less. A straight across the board 40% increase wasn't reality for most of us.

    Re: Seasons Tickets

    I didn't mean to sidetrack this.

    I actually joined last year when there was a thread regarding the in-game experience (or lack thereof) at Commonwealth and I was going to comment on how the Eskimos and the CFL in general are already losing my now 9 year-old son due to bland in-game presentation, poor marketing in general and a league that doesn't seem to get it.

    Then I realized all you guys are incredibly knowledgeable about the team and the CFL and football in general and I was pretty much scared away I'm just a guy who buys tickets to sports events and enjoys spending time at games with my kids and wife.

    When I got my season ticket package a few days ago my first though was "wow, that's pretty weak compared to what I get from my other packages with the Oilers and FC Edmonton" and I came here to see if I was the only one thinking that.

    Somehow I got into defending the hockey teams, when I didn't really mean to other than to compare perks. I'll step aside now and just maintain my position that the Eskimos do a poor job of rewarding season seat holder loyalty.

    It's all good discussion Danrek. I think there are lots of different variations of Esks fans on this site. Conversation is always good so please never feel a topic or opinion might not be worth discussing.
    Sorry to hear you son isn't grabbing the in-game experience. I think that goes for a lot of kids going to the stadium. Hopefully you can get him out to events like the fan day and he can have a more direct interaction with all the players.

    Re: Seasons Tickets

    you mean having the season ticket card, with the little booklet of crap shoved in the middle of a folded letter all put into a envelope that did not have the proper esks color wasn't the bestest way to present tickets ?

    Re: Seasons Tickets

    This is the first year that the little man wasn't excited about getting his Season Seat package... Way to entice the younger fans guys! He opened the envelope and looked inside and didn't even bother taking anything out. Just left it on the counter.

    I'm not too overly concerned about nick-knacks and such, but PRESENTATION MATTERS!

    It doesn't take a genius to figure out that there is a way to package things nicely and effectively that will make the customer feel excited about being a part of something.

    Re: Seasons Tickets

    So if I want to go on holidays and give me tickets to friends for 2 different games. Do I have to tell them to contact each other to trade the cards? Then have to remember to get the cards back before I return to Commonwealth?

    No. Send the tickets for each game electronically to your friends. They don't need the card.

    The money for the commercial had to come from somewhere....several hundred K doesn't grow on trees....unless it was borrowed from ops thus making it difficult to see eye to eye about fair market value

    FIVE dollar tickets for kids on nights they can stay up a little later and learn how to enjoy watching football. Why does a football team with a giant freaking stadium not do this? Maybe it might convince some dads to come to an extra game or two. Maybe?

    If there is an option for season tix holders to purchase additional seats ahead of general sales, I just want to remind all my friends with season tickets that I owe them a beer (or a gin)

    I will be there one way or another with you all - now, hopefully our favorite team will be too. Last Cup I went to in Edmonton was 2002. Right team, wrong result. Although Shania Twain was pretty good.
