1  C*4 Fan Community / General Wrestling Discussion / Local Ticket Prices for Indy Wrestling on: June 28, 2012, 03:57:07 PM
Hey everybody,
I am not writing this for C*4 specifically - but more of looking to all of you for general feedback on what you spend on indy wrestling tickets.

For C*4 specifically, we have been charging $20 VIP and $15 for GA, which went up an original $15 GA price for the first two seasons.  The introduction of a $20 ticket, even for VIP tickets was a risky one we felt, as it was a high price for an independent wrestling show.   However, the VIP ticket bracket has proven to be very popular.

Now, for Fighting Back, the tickets range from $20 for GA, $25 for 2nd or 3rd row, with meet & greet, and reserved front row seating & meet and greet for $30.   Looking at the cause behind it, with several high-profile international talents appearing, I believe most people find it entirely reasonable.

In regard to C*4 tickets and our ticket structure, the cards are usually loaded with talent from across Ontario, Quebec, and the United States - and we feel the ticket price is very fair.   

When InterSpecies Wrestling and Chikara both ran in the city, they offered a $15/$20, and $25 ticket each, respectively.  Seeing as how these were both special events, and not a regular thing, I assume many people were find with these prices.

My question to you is, how much is too much?  Are you comfortable with higher prices for "premium" (ie; C*4, ISW, Chikara, Battlewar) shows?  Do you feel that a ticket structure of $15 as GA price (and even if promotions now doing $20 VIP) is acceptable across the board, despite some shows only mainly featuring local wrestlers, or that are shows which don't cater to the same audience as the "premium" ones? 

Personally, I give major props to Acclaim for their structure of pricing.  For as low as $8 for kids, and $12 for adults, they offer a unique and fun experience which is quite different than a C*4 show, but very enjoyable nonetheless.

That said, the increasing $15 to $20 is becoming more and more accepted.  Would higher prices for a "premium" product be accepted as well?

Just looking for general feedback.  This doesn't indicate a price raise for C*4 tickets in any way - just looking for discussion.

From PWinsider...
On this week's episode of NXT, during the opening match, William Regal and Josh Mathews mentioned that the new season of NXT will debut next week.

After the opening match, they showed a commercial with some footage from the Full Sail tapings of NXT.

The next NXT taping at Full Sail is on Thursday night.

Which is awesome to hear, considering the current roster / and it is a new venue and look...

As far as I know, and as unfortunate as it may be, the webmaster (Gordo), just moved on.   

He did a great job, and it is unfortunate that he is no longer doing it.

At the end of the day, what he did was against the law of the country he was in.  So, to be fair he is lucky he wasn't arrested / or made an example of.
WWE is a publicly traded company, and in the global environment they exist in, they have to save face in instances like this. 

Is is something that hasn't been done before?  No. 
Is it a different climate than even 6 years ago when JBL goose-stepped in Germany?  Yes, very much so.

Try posting on the Ontario Indy board, or on the Alpha 1 group on Facebook.. I know lots of fans from the GTA want to try making it, but haven't yet.
