Rays offer deal for season tickets

Team joins with two area Chambers of Commerce

ST. PETERSBURG -- The Rays are partnering with the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce on a special season ticket offer for the second half of the 2008 season.

Current members and prospects of the St. Petersburg and Tampa chambers, which spend at least $3,600 in new 2008 Rays pro-rated season tickets will receive a $600 credit toward their chamber membership. For current chamber members, this credit may be used to renew their memberships or upgrade to a larger membership. For chamber prospects, it may be applied to a new membership.

"This unique partnership gives area businesses added incentive to join the family of Rays season ticket holders," Rays President Matt Silverman said. "Your support of the Rays secures both a Chamber membership and great seats for what's shaping up to be a thrilling stretch run."

Rays season ticket holders receive access to preferred seating and secure the same seats for every game. In addition to establishing seniority for priority upgrades and postseason benefits, they can save up to 34 percent off the regular ticket price. They also receive a My Rays account to manage season tickets online, invitations to exclusive events, and discounted parking options.
