Panthers 'Drop the Puck' On Operation 5,000
50 new sales reps joined the team today
The Florida Panthers welcomed 50 new sales representatives to the staff today for Operation 5,000, the aggressive new sales campaign with a goal of selling 5,000 new season seats for the 2006-07 season.
"We have set our goal and we'll work tirelessly to achieve it," Sunrise Sports & Entertainment chief operating officer Michael Yormark said. "The 50 new sales representatives starting today will allow us to aggressively reach out to potential Panthers fans in the community. We are actively encouraging our present season seat holders to renew now, because seat locations will be at a premium once this campaign gets rolling."
The new sales reps arrived today to begin the training process for Operation 5,000, which is set to begin Monday, April 17. Prospective season ticket holders can look forward to special events and benefits such as priority purchasing for playoff tickets, autograph signings and "Welcome Parties" where fans can celebrate their new commitment to the franchise, meet team personalities and take a tour of the BankAtlantic Center and the Panthers locker room.
This season fans have been treated to some unbelievable hockey at the BankAtlantic Center, as the Panthers have posted a 24-10-4 record with two home games remaining. The Cats have notched home victories over some of the NHL's best including Detroit, Nashville, Ottawa, the New York Rangers and a four-game sweep over the defending Stanley Cup Champion Tampa Bay Lightning. With wins in the last two home games against, the Cats will tie the franchise mark for home wins in a season with 26.
"We are excited about the creative and flexible ticket plans we have to offer fans in the local community," said Vice President of Ticket Sales R.J. Martino. "We can customize ticket packages to fit everyone's needs and budget. There's nothing like Panthers hockey at the BankAtlantic Center and its something we would like everyone to enjoy."
