Drive to 13,000 Could be Quick

Drive to 13

With only an hour and half hour away away from the offical release of Season Ticket sales to the general public over half are already sold. If True North wants to send a message to the Board of Govenors, Winnipeg fans are right behind them putting their money where their mouths are.  After three days of presales all 50 luxury boxes and 7,158 individual season tickets have been sold leaving only 5,842 tickets for the rest of us to fight over. As of press time P1 is already sold out.

I think the real question now is not if the Drive to 13,000 will be a success but how fast will we get there. It’s quite possible that by the end of today there will be no season tickets left. It might even be sold out by the end of the work day, or will this be the concert effect and be sold out in minutes?

I for one won’t be taking any chances and am sitting by the computer anxiously counting down the minutes until I can make my purchase. Granted we are able to aquire our seats you can look forward to a few contests on this site to give away seats to games during the season.

Do you plan on getting season tickets and are you worried they might sell out before you can?

When we take a look at Twitter here’s what some people are saying:

@johnathonburke Johnathon Burkei
would bet my life they can and will process the remaining 5800 tomorrow… ( i just hope 4 of them are mine! )

@nmhomer Nicole Homer
#Driveto13 will be madness at noon tomorrow. Must be organized before then, one slip up and we could miss out. Simply can’t let that happen.

I wouldn’t be surprised if #Winnipeg #NHL team sells out within minutes of start of public sale tomorrow. #gojetsgo

@hustlerlawless Hustler & Lawless

Winnipeggers are doing the city proud with response to the season ticket call. Board of governors, can you say ‘slam dunk’ #NHL

Many believe True North will hit their goal of 13,000 before the weekend comes to a close. Manitobans are putting their money where mouth is

@ArashMadani Arash Madani
7,158 tickets sold so far in the Winnipeg NHL pre-sale. Some 5,842 remain for tomorrow’s public sale. Expect a full sell-out within minutes.

Productivity should skyrocket at Wpg workplaces next week, after days of season ticket negotiations Also, we’re all much better at math now.

@Driveto13 Drive to 13,000
Not much will change to that number before tomorrow at 12:00. Leaving just over 5,800 for general onsale.
