Bulletin: Senators Retract Tickets Sold to Suspected Brokers

 

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators have retracted more than 150 tickets for the Stanley Cup final sold yesterday to suspected ticket brokers.

 

The Senators had approximately 900 standing room and Coca-Cola Family Zone tickets available per game for yesterday's 10 a.m. public on-sale. The Coca-Cola Family Zone tickets were available through the internet, by phone and via outlets. All available tickets were sold in less than four minutes.

 

"This (retracting of tickets) is the right thing to do," said Cyril Leeder, chief operating officer of the Senators and Scotiabank Place. "We have found that scalping is much more prevalent today. In our case, we saw tickets being purchased at 10 a.m. and then being offered for resale at substantial premiums on various broker websites before noon."

 

The Senators are holding the suspect tickets, but have given legitimate buyers the opportunity to validate their purchases within 48 hours.

 

"We want to ensure that Senators and NHL fans are buying our tickets and are attending our games," added Leeder. "Reselling Senators tickets is a clear violation of our ticket policies, but, more importantly, this type of broker/scalper behaviour is unfair to true hockey fans."

 

An announcement will be made as to the availability of the retracted tickets once all the suspected accounts have been determined.
