Promotions, Promotions Promotions & Some Ticket News

MLS is back this weekend, so we thought we would take a quick look at promotional efforts around the league in advance of the weekend games.  In Houston, the Dynamo will offer a ticket promotion in honor of outgoing President and GM Oliver Luck.  The team will offer $10 tickets for certain seats to honor Luck’s Number 10 jersey from his days on the Houston Oilers.  This will be Luck’s last game before he takes over as athletic director for West Virginia.

In Columbus, the Crew are offering a “Play Harder” pack that offers tickets to 4 games and a t-shirt for $60. At the same time, the June 26 match against DC is one of the Columbus “Buck a Brat” nights.  The promotion is sponsored by the food chain Bob Evans.

Finally, Chivas USA is offering tickets for as low as $7.50 for their Saturday night game against Dallas.  There will a Disney half time show at the game and the promotion is available for the purchase of one adult and one child ticket.

In Portland, the Oregon Business Journal is reporting that the Portland Timbers have received more than 1,000 season ticket deposits over the last 10 days.   Season ticket prices for the inaugural 2011 campaign will range from $99 to $1500.
