Some 200 fans now have obstructed view for Winnipeg Jets games after renovations to MTS Centre
The Winnipeg Jets haven’t even played a game that counts, yet, but they’re off to a less-than-stellar start in the public relations department.
It seems in making 278 fans happy by adding new premium seats for this season, they’ve angered nearly 200 others.
The loge seating added to the first row of the upper level has created obstructed views for ticket holders behind the loges.
Tuesday’s first pre-season game revealed the problem.
True North spokesman Scott Brown says “less than 200” seats have dramatically different views of the ice compared to last season.
“We are currently reviewing the specific locations and are working on a plan to address the concerns,” Brown said. “We will work collaboratively with each of the customers that have been impacted to determine a solution.”
Reducing the cost of the obstructed tickets, Brown said, is not an option being considered.
