KNOCKING DOWN THE PRICE
The price of season tickets for the Pistons is going down.
The Pistons announced Tuesday that the club will lower all season ticket prices for the 2009-10 NBA season. Season ticket holders who renew season tickets and pay in full by May 1 will save at least 10% from last season.
Additional ways to save include taking part in a newly-developed 10-payment plan or by taking advantage of a free upgrade option on seats.
The Pistons' sellout streak ended last month. They're still drawing sizable crowds for special games like Chauncey Billups' return last week and weekend games. But there were plenty of empty seats Monday when they played Southeast Division leader Orlando. The Pistons have been discounting single tickets in the upper levels all season to fill the building and know that season ticket sales will fall dramatically next season unless they take some steps to entice buyers.
