The season-ticket campaign for Winnipeg's new NHL team continued to do well on its second day.
By late afternoon Thursday, True North Sports and Entertainment Ltd., announced 4,170 season tickets were sold, which is almost equal to the 4,500 season tickets for the departing Manitoba Moose. All season tickets come with a commitment from the buyer from three to five years.
This is significant because the first three days of the online campaign are only open to groups of subscribers to the Moose, the American Hockey League team that is being moved to St. John's.
Tickets will be available to the public on Saturday. True North has a goal of selling 13,000 season tickets by June 21, when the NHL's board of governors is to vote to approve the sale of the Atlanta Thrashers to True North.
