BLUE JAYS OFFER
Toronto The Toronto Blue Jays will launch single game ticket sales for the 2006 Championship Season at a time when season ticket and group sales are at a level not seen since the Club was last in the playoffs. "There is a genuine buzz about the Blue Jays that has translated into the strongest sales we've seen in sometime," says President & CEO Paul Godfrey. He notes overall new acquisitions are up 111%, while new full-season subscriptions are up 80% from the same period a year ago. Godfrey went on to add, "People continue to be attracted by the value and affordability of our tickets. The fan-friendly renovations made to Rogers Centre drew new customers in 2005, while continued construction has fans looking forward to even more new features for 2006. Above all though, there is a real excitement about the new team we'll be putting on the field."

To celebrate the official box office opening on February 25, the Blue Jays will once again be hosting a day-long fan festival at Toronto's Eaton Centre called "Jays Swing into Spring." Included in the activities will be an appearance and autograph signing by select Blue Jays players, a fashion show of new Jays merchandise and auditions to sing the national anthems before a Jays home game.
Godfrey says, "While some teams have made price changes across the board we are pleased to extend tremendous value to families and young Jays fans by holding the line on many price points. In fact, we have dropped the price of a ticket in our Club 200 Baselines section by five dollars." The Club continues to offer 500 Level seats for just $9. The price in that section and the 200 Level Outfield seats is dropped to just $2 for Tuesday night games in April and May. What follows is a comparison of this year's single game pricing with the 2005 season.
