Toledo Arena Sports, Inc. has announced that event level seats for the new downtown arena will go on sale November 19 at 9 a.m.

TAS officials say the proximity to the playing surface at the event level will offer fans outstanding views from their padded auditorium style seat.  Seat width will range from 19 to 22 inches depending on location.

Fans will have several options when purchasing their Event Level season tickets at the new downtown arena including:

First Three (3) Rows – Only 750 seats available for this exclusive seating option.

Some event level seating packages will include a First In Line (F.I.L.) Package – No waiting in line. This package allows an exclusive window of opportunity to purchase seats for all arena events such as concerts, family shows and extreme sports – before they are placed on sale to the public. 

Toledo Arena Sports, Inc. Assistant General Manager, Ticket Sales Erik Ibsen said, “Fan support for the arena has been tremendous.  The number of unsolicited inquiries to our ticket department as to when lower level tickets will go on sale has exceeded our expectations.  I know that many fans have been looking forward to this and it is another sign that we are getting closer to our first arena event.”

TAS has reported that over 800 club seats have already been sold and less than 100 remain.

The Lucas County Arena will open in October, 2009 and will begin a new era for the downtown Toledo entertainment district. The new arena will be home to the Toledo Walleye hockey team, an af2 football team, and host many of the nation’s highest quality sporting and entertainment events year-round. 

The Walleye professional hockey team will begin play in October of 2009 at the brand new Lucas County Downtown Arena, which is currently under construction. The Toledo af2 team will begin play in the spring of 2010.

The Lucas County Arena will be located in close proximity to Fifth Third Field, the SeaGate Convention Centre, The Valentine Theatre, and The Toledo Museum of Art.  Over 2.5 million visitors are expected to visit these attractions annually.
