The Buffalo Sabres are forming a Blue & Gold Club, which for a nonrefundable $100 deposit per seat, gets you on their season-ticket waiting list. For the second straight season, the Sabres have capped season-ticket sales at 14,800 in an arena that holds 18,690. There will be fewer than 4,000 tickets available per game.
But not necessarily for walk-up purchase on the day of the game.
If you join the B&G Club by Sept. 7, that $100 deposit also entitles you to buy individual game tickets before they go on sale to the general public Sept. 15. That privilege also will extend to playoff games, if any tickets are available.
Daniel J. DiPofi, the Sabres’ chief operating officer, told The News: “I think we’ll be sold out of all individual tickets before the season starts.”
So do you want to take a chance and grab game tickets on Sept. 15 or pay the $100 deposit and get to purchase them on Sept. 13, which is the tentative plan?
