Nearly 70,000 fans have already signed up for the Winnipeg Jets’ random drawing program for individual game tickets within the past two weeks.
“With such an overwhelming demand and such a limited supply, we are now convinced that the draw process was the best way to divide the remaining tickets and guarantee an unbiased process in doing so,” said Jim Ludlow, president and CEO of True North Sports and Entertainment.
About 600 tickets will be made available for each game this season at MTS Centre to fans whose names are drawn.
The Jets will soon be launching Jets SeatExchange — a secure way to handle fan-to-fan ticket sales transactions.
The Jets also announced Friday that a number of season ticket accounts have been cancelled due to activity surrounding the re-sale of tickets outside of the provisions account holders must agree to.
“In order to protect buyers and sellers, the organization is monitoring the market on a daily basis,” said Ludlow.
