Seriously, I haven't heard of anything this silly since tying Avs and Nuggets tickets together. From the official Avs' site:
Special Avalanche "Avaholic" season ticket promotion:
If you buy full season tickets anywhere in the arena you can buy the same number of full season tickets in the lower level (sections 112, 114, 110, 116) for only $1,010/seat (usually $3,740/seat) or the upper level for $505/seat.
For example, with this ticket special you could get four full season tickets (two upper level and two lower level) for only $4,044/seat total. The regular total cost of getting two upper and two lower season tickets would be $9,504/seat (savings of over 50%).
Here's how I read this: You like spending money on the Avs? Well, spend some more money for two extra tickets nowhere near your two other seats for just half price! Family of four? What better way to enjoy the game than by splitting up the family. Taking friends to the game? You can always meet up in the concourse!
Coming later this season, the Special Avaholic Randum Number Generator Season Ticket promotion: Buy any season ticket at regular price, and get a second season ticket -- located randomly throughout the building -- for 50% off! That a potential savings of $450/seat, or $18,450 a season!
I also like this statement, "The regular total cost of getting two upper and two lower season tickets would be $9,504/seat" -- Essentially this statement means they admit to an average ticket price for the Pepsi Center of $58 each.
Perhaps corporations may take advantage of this, but I can't see any "Avaholics" thinking this is a good idea.
