Season ticket demand for the Suns has reached levels where the team "must put a cap on how many can be sold and create a waitlist" for the "first time in a decade," according to Brandon Brown of the PHOENIX BUSINESS JOURNAL. Suns' season tickets will be "capped at 12,100," leaving 5,000 other seats available for each game at Footprint Center. Those other tickets will be available for "game-to-game purchases, community groups and programs sponsored by Suns players, partners and Suns Charities." The move to cap tickets will allow the Suns to "increase ticket prices for the rest of the 2021-2022 season based on demand." At the same time, by capping season tickets the Suns "ensure that people who can’t afford the high-priced packages can still go to a game." The success on the court is driving demand, but Suns Senior VP/Ticket Sales & Services Kyle Pottinger said that the team had been "planning on capping season tickets at 12,100 for a while -- since the renovation of its arena." Brown noted there are "less than 180 Suns' season ticket memberships available." They are "all in the upper bowl," with the lower bowl and club level seats "already sold out." The team has "already started a waitlist for club level seats" and will begin a "tiered waitlist for lower and upper bowl seats once the final available memberships have been sold" (BIZJOURNALS.com, 1/6).
