Coyotes' ticket sales rise dramaticallyJuly 11, 2019 | 02:03 AM
Since acquiring Phil Kessel, Arizona Coyotes season-ticket sales have shot up 600% compared to the same week last year.
Ticket sales overall are up 550% for the Coyotes. As you might imagine, the Kessel trade also led to a spike in website activity and social media engagement for the Coyotes. We had previously reported that the Kessel trade led to an increase in ticket sales for Arizona, but now we have an appreciation for just how big that spike has been. "It's certainly satisfying and exciting to see us doing something as a franchise that we feel makes us a much more competitive team and puts us in a better position to win," Coyotes CEO Ahron Cohen said. "The fact that other people in this market are seeing that, fans are seeing that, and they're jumping on board. It's good, positive momentum for this organization."
