BREAKING NEWS: WinnipegWhiteOut.com has learnt a lottery will be used for the right to buy preseason tickets.
The Winnipeg Jets will announce tomorrow that the remaining tickets available for the preseason games will be sold via lottery. The bad news is if you’re not on the waiting list, it looks like you don’t have a chance at tickets.
All Wait List members will automatically be entered. No further action is required prior to the draw.
Winners will be selected through a random draw Thursday September 15, 2011 at 4:00PM.
30 minutes following the draw, winners will be notified by email with an individual password and discreet link. Only winners will be notified.
Winners will then log in through the Ticketmaster link to purchase tickets on Friday, September 16, 2011 at 3:00PM. A maximum of 2 tickets can be purchased based on remaining available inventory.
While the above is direct from True North to waiting list members and is fact, speculation still remains around the single game tickets that will be available for the regular season games. It’s our belief that the lottery system will be used as well, however we can’t see True North limiting this just to waiting list members so don’t get worked up yet. It’s likely more will be known after the announcement is made tomorrow.
