The Toledo Walleye (ECHL) and Bullfrogs (arenafootball2) are pleased to announce that over 2,200 season tickets have already been sold for the 2009-10 season. This ranks the Walleye 4th out of 20 teams in the ECHL currently in season tickets sold.

With the start of the hockey season seven (7) weeks away, the fans have shown strong support for the team that will fill the void of professional hockey in Toledo over the past two years.

2009-10 season ticket plans range from 9-game packages up to full-season tickets for hockey and football (36 Walleye games & 8 Bullfrogs games). All packages of 18 games or more include tickets to Opening Night.

As of September 1, the Toledo Walleye/Bullfrogs ticket department has pre-sold over 110,000 tickets for the 2009-10 season.

Assistant General Manager/Ticket Sales & Operations Erik Ibsen said, “The support of Toledo Walleye hockey has been tremendous. We have talked to so many people over the last several months and the overwhelming response is that Toledo is excited for hockey to make its return to the area and fans are excited to see arena football for the first time. The new Lucas County multi-purpose arena is going to be a great place to watch hockey and football.”

The Walleye will be holding a special school day game on Wednesday, November 4th with a 10:30 am start time. Over 3,500 tickets have already been sold for that game alone.

Individual tickets for the 2009-10 season are also available now by phone (419) 725-WALL or online at www.toledowalleye.com.
