6 year Bobcats season ticket holder here.  Over those 6 years my ticket prices have increased a total of 15 dollars per ticket (happened about 3 years ago).  Yesterday I check my email from Jordan who let me know that my ticket prices may have gone up due to the new NC state tax on live events.  I also figured that they would go up some due to the Hornets name change (which im 1000000x in support of btw). 

 

When I check my account, my tickets more than doubled in price (2.25%).  I went to the game tonight to buy my Hornets gear and support my team but decided to stop by and talk to my season ticket holder representative and I was basically told to pound sand and pay up.  She recommended I sell some of my tickets next year to bandwagon Heat and Lakers fans to make up the cost.

 

Now im not trying to turn this into a pity party...im probably going to keep my tickets.  But im wondering if any of you guys out there have experienced anything similar?  Like I said, I had a feeling this would happen gradually, but I ended up missing out on a number of "price lock guarantee deals" and "buy one season get one season half off deals" because I was never told this drastic of an increase would occur.

 

Feels like the Bobcats are screwing over their loyal fans who have been here for a long time and sweeping it under the rug with the Hornets name change and NC Tax increase.

 

Has this happened to anyone else?

I'm not a season ticket holder but did look into buying for this season an next when they offered buy this year an lock in the same price for next year. After I knew I could only make a handful of games decided against it. My parents were original hornets STH till they left however.

This is the deal that I took advantage of. I thought at the time that it wouldn't make that big of a difference, but it looks now like it did. Being there on opening night for the Hornets will make it all worth it.

Sucks about your situation, though. They did have to make a significant investment in this name change, so now they figure it's time for the city to pony up. There's profit to be had.

Correct. Plus, you have first dibs on the seats for the following seasons.
