The Nashville Predators have hooked up with another corporate partner, creating the "Lexus Inner Circle" for season ticket holders in the first two rows of the lower bowl. These packages offer special access and privileges, for those who can pony up the dough.
Recall that last season the Preds looked into making a "Reserve" section in the 200-level by clearing out the regular seats and creating a unique atmosphere catering to high net-worth individuals, but that plan petered out. The idea, however, is a savvy one; offer special value to (and generate revenue from) the many wealthy folks in the Middle Tennessee area, in order to boost overall hockey revenues for the club. The general fan is doing their part, as families and individuals make up a huge portion of the season ticket base, and the upper bowl is usually well-sold.
In addition to boosting the appeal of those high-priced seats, it's good to see another corporate sponser come into the fold as well.
