If you've purchased Bulls tickets in the last 10 years, undoubtedly you have received a call from Neil or Tina or Safdar* following up on your interest in Chicago Bulls season tickets.
You could get some nice seats in section 309, row 17 for the entire season for the low, low price of $1,505 each ($35 per seat x 41 games + 2 preseason games)
Of, if you're grandfathered in like me, you can get an 11 game package. The Bulls no longer offer 11 games plans, instead nudging people to the full season tickets, but they have allowed people who have had plans to continue with their 11 game plan. Unfortunately, they've cut the 11 game plan tickets from 12 sections down to 8, and have eliminated the front row of those sections, reserving them for full season ticket plans (ironically enough, during half of the games I attended last year, that entire row 1 was empty, as they are pretty lousy for full season seats...either they went unsold, or just unoccupied)
Back in the day, the Bulls made their 11 game plans based on when you wanted to see the games: Weekend, Weekday, or Mixed. The Weekday seemed to have better games, naturally, to even out the demand.
Nowadays, the 11 game plans are an even mix of Premium, Prime, and Regular games. Some weekend, some weeknight, etc. Below are the three 11 game plans that can be chosen. I'm curious to hear what plan people would select if they had their choice, based on the teams, dates, etc.

Of course, these 11 game plans could turn into 8 game plans or 5 game plans or 0 game plans. Share your thoughts about the plans in the comments after the poll.
*- real names of my last 3 ticket reps, all with the same phone #. Lots of turnover at the Chicago Bulls ticket office, apparently.
