Tickets for Sat 21st Preseason?

Postby heath42 on Tue Sep 17, 2013 11:54 am

The Pens schedule shows a home game this Saturday at 4:00, but there is no link to buy tickets. Also, when I log in to my Account Manager, it does not show this game existing. Do season ticket holders not have tickets for this game? I'm utterly confused. I was assuming I had tickets for this, and would like to forward them to a friend if I do. I assume I can always look at my ticket book when I get home and solve this riddle, but figured I'd get a head start here....

Don't the Pens do a game for all the youth hockey kids in the area every year?

Yeah, I presume thats the one. Its not that big of a deal, but its kind of bs that sths don't get every game. If you aren't counting those preseason games as legitimate games and can give one away, don't charge sths full price for those games.

Season ticket holders are NOT charged for this game.

The Pens added the extra pre season game at home and give free tickets to various kids groups/hockey teams, etc.

It is actually a really cool game to attend. All the kids have their game jerseys and every section in the lower bowl is a different color. They really play it up to the kids. It is a great promotion the Penguins do for the kids. This is the 3rd year they have don this, and I assume they will do it every year from here on out.

Thanks for clarifying. Sounds like a heck of a good time for the kids! Confusion over. :)

I'm pretty happy that I don't have to buy all the preseason games as a STH.

It's free until a player get hurt. Then let the people complain when Crosby or Malkin get hurt.

If you have kids but don't have tickets to the game, Dick's Sporting goods was running a promotion. Kids show up in hockey jersey, and they'll give you tickets. Not sure if it's still going on.

Most kids get tickets through their youth hockey teams. But I guess these were extras allotted for the promotion.

They don't pay for "all" the preseason games.

Oh ok so we're arguing about something thats irrelevant here. If you are forced to pay full price for preseason games, you should get all of them. Realistically, it should be just like playoff tickets. You should have the right to get all of them, or should be able to skip them.

No one will be able to complain about the crowd noise at today's game. Although, I know *we* will. 8-)
Go kids; have fun!
