    New Hornets Season Ticket Idea...

    I thought of this a couple of days ago. If you have a few minutes, read it and let me know what you think. I know it still needs some tweaking but I don't think it's a bad idea...

    I love it. Absolutely fantastic idea... a lot of college sports programs have similar contests. Tulane put one in place for the men's and women's basketball games during my senior year there. Swipe your student ID at the gate for any game or pep rally and accumulate points. Various prizes for however many points you have at the end of the football/basketball/baseball season.

    All i want next year is for a 21 game (half season) plan where I get to pick the games....

    But this idea is fricking awesome....

    Really cool idea. LSU instituted this a few years after I graduated. For each mens's/women's game you go to, your card is swpied and priority points are added. The more points you accumulate, the better your odds are of going to the SEC championship and bowl games. Very ingenius method that can yield big results. Hell, LSU bsaketball is pathetic this year but we have a decent student section for the priority points alone.

    Solid idea. Only wrench in it is that the type of person who'd win the MVF Crown (courtesy of BK) is more than likely in here and already doing his/her part.

    How would this plan convince someone who isn't interested in buying tickets to get a season tix plan?

    Didn't the Hornets have something like this before Katrina where you could win prizes based on getting points for attending games?

    They issued a season ticket holder card and you earned points based on games attended - I still have mine. That was then extended to anyone by year 3.

    Because it would really publicize the benefits of being a STH to any and all fans. It not only adds incentives to buy season tickets, but it would also make a pretty large number of people aware of those incentives (not to mention the ones already in place: open practices, beer gardens, meet-and-greets with GM, photos with players, casino night... really excited about this, btw, etc). Sure, only one person wins the MVF. But in announcing the selection process, the team would promote other basic benefits and rewards for STH about which many people might not have a clue.

    Not sure this would work, but maybe they can team with a local car dealership and promote the season ticket holder with the most points at the end of the season will win the car? Just an idea...

    The thing is that it may not work as well as hoped, but it surely wouldn't hurt anything. In buisness it's sometimes about many good ideas that equal success. Ideas like that can only benefit the team, not hurt them.
