  1. If, in fact, they announce paying half of the season ticket and then the other half if the team makes the playoffs, it is only a copycat idea. If you do the math, it’s a real money maker especially if they make the playoffs.

    If they make the playoffs and sell an additional 2000 season tickets, the additional revenue generated could be as much as $1.1MM per year based on $450 per season ticket and each ticket holder spending only $10 per game. My guess is that there will be a 3-year commitment to purchase tickets with this option. It could be a plus for Grasshoppers, people who provide parking, Natty Greenes, etc..

    Who knows, they may even make the playoffs!
