Selling Tickets in MLS

Just a couple of quick hitters tonight on Major League Soccer promotional efforts from teams around the league.  We’ll start in New England, where the Revs are offering a promotional package in recognition of the team’s Hispanic Heritage Night.   The four pack of tickets comes matched with four sodas and four nachos grande.   The promotion is built around the team’s home date with the New York Red Bulls.  Ticket prices range from $21-$35 and requires the payment of an $8 order fee.

On Thursday night, the Philadelphia Union host DC United at PPL Park.  The team has paired the nationally televised contest with a couple of themes aimed at increasing attendance.  The team is offering dollar hot dogs on Thursday and pairing that promotion with a college night that seemingly includes no discount for college fans.  As part of the theme of the evening, the team is hosting a pediatric cancer awareness night and donating some of the ticket proceeds to a worthy cause.  The Union continue that theme for their next home game with an ovarian cancer awareness night.  That same Sunday night game includes discounts for boy scouts and a number of other honors for scouts at the game.

One final note from surging Chicago, which is offering an ongoing family promotion.  The deal offers four tickets, four hot dogs and four sodas for prices starting at $79.
