Selling Tickets in MLS

As we do every few weeks, we take a look at the promotions and marketing efforts MLS teams are using to sell seats for the upcoming matches. We’ll start in Houston, where the Dynamo are offering a creatively marketed Hawaii 2-5 Package.  The $99 deal includes 2 tickets to the May 21 match against the Red Bulls at Robertson Stadium and entrance to a pre-game tailgate. Buyers also get a pair of Brian Ching autographed flip flops. The package is offered in conjunction with Dymamo Charities.  The deal is more expensive than most packages but it includes no information about the pre-game tailgate that likely makes up the most significant portion of the cost.  The team is also offering a $68 4 pack in conjunction with McDonalds.

San Jose is also offering a promotion in conjunction with New York’s only appearance this year. The team is sponsoring a fireworks night for the Red Bulls match.  Specifically, the team is offering a 4 pack for $50 that also includes 2 team T-shirts.  The match will be held at Stanford Stadium.  The team is also trying to sell a two game package that includes seats to both the West Brom friendly and the Red Bulls games.  Unfortuantely, the link on the team site leads nowhere helpful in search of that deal.

We’ll conclude in Philly, where the Union are pushing the last opportunity to purchase season tickets.  Pro rated seats range from $209 to $534
