Phillies Ticket Sales Are Slumping
The Inquirer reports that Phillies fans apparently aren’t in the mood to watch an aging lineup try to reclaim old glories:
For the second season running, the Phils are heading toward opening day at home (April 7 against the Milwaukee Brewers) with seats still to fill. And the team – although still a league leader – is looking at a significant drop in season-ticket sales, as well.
“Our sales numbers are down,” said John Weber, the Phillies’ vice president of sales and ticket operations. “Last year, we had about 24,000 season-ticket holders. We are going to have between 18 [thousand] and 19,000 this year, which still ranks us in the top of baseball. It is a very solid number, but not where we have been.”
Here’s the secret to selling more tickets, guys: Win more World Series! It works like a charm, promise.
