BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Season ticket holders will have to dig a little deeper to see the Sabres hit the ice next season at First Niagara Center.

The team is raising the price of season tickets by four percent for the 2014-15 season. That works out to about $1 – $4 more per game, depending on seat location. Even with the slight increase, the Sabres say they will still offer fans the most affordable experience in the NHL.

“We are grateful to our fans for their incredible loyalty and patience through a challenging season,” said Sabres president Ted Black. “It’s important to us to balance the affordability of our tickets against the opportunity to qualify for League revenue sharing.”

Sabres ticket holders can earn a 6.5 percent rebate, which is added to their SabreBucks card, if they renew their account by June 23. If they renew after that date, they will receive a 2.5 percent rebate. SabreBucks can be used at concession stands and to buy merchandise at the First Niagara Center. The cards will also be accepted at HARBORcenter when it opens this fall.

Current season-ticket holders will be receiving their renewal packages by mail over the next week.

Fans must put down a 10 percent deposit by June 23 to secure their current seat location. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
