Wild won't raise season ticket prices

ST. PAUL (AP) -- Season ticket prices for the Minnesota Wild will remain the same in 2004-05.

Per-ticket costs range from $12 on the ends of the upper deck to $80 on the sides of the club level with an average price of $50.72 -- same as this season and slightly below the NHL mean of $51.71.

The Wild have 16,500 season ticket holders and more than 7,000 on a waiting list. They've sold out every game since the franchise began playing in September 2000.

The 2004-05 NHL schedule, in doubt because of a labor dispute that could cause owners to lock out the players, will be released in mid-July.

In other news, the Wild have promoted Matt Majka and Pamela Wheelock to executive vice presidents of the club and its parent company, Minnesota Sports and Entertainment.


Wheelock, who serves as the organization's chief financial officer, was finance commissioner under Gov. Jesse Ventura before leaving to work for the Wild.
