    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.

    Don't be shy. Most of the people on here, except me, dool.
    What do Eskimos get from sitting on the ice too long? Polaroids.

    new blood is always good... we here are still shellshocked over the firing of Hervey, so I'm sure lots of us are a tad bit PO'd and on edge.. it'll pass
