Selling Tickets in MLS

revs jerseyEvery few weeks during the season we take a look at the promotional efforts used by Major League Soccer teams to sell tickets.  Over the four plus years we have been writing this blog, the number of teams that rely upon promotions have declined, with teams like Portland, KC and Seattle filing their stadiums without running such promotions.  However, some teams still use such devices to entice fans and fill stadiums.

The Revs are running a promotion for their home opener by offering four and six game “First Kick” packages.  Starting at just $86, the packages include a special Revs t-shirts and allows fans to select a series of other games during the course of the season. Package holders can also purchase discounted tickets to other games and receive preferential treatment for other games.  For more on this promotion, click here.

The Rapids are offering a five game plans through their website that also gives fans a choice of games.  Purchasers also receive a limited edition Rapids scarf.  The order page is somewhat confusing and price points aren’t easily determined.  However, the seats range from $20 per game to $36 and fans can seemingly mix and match their sections.

Finally, Chivas USA is offering 3 and 5 game discount mini-plans. Fans can receive a substantial discount off of full ticket prices.  Tickets start at just $45 for the 3 game   packs and $60 for the 5 game packages.  The team also offers four ticket family packs.  For more, click here.
