A jam-packed lobby and a long line outside Hotel Utica on Wednesday night as Utica Comets Season-Ticket holders came out to pick up their ticket packets for the upcoming season.

More than 1500 season tickets have been sold for the inaugural season which opens at home on Wednesday, October 23rd.  The Comets open the season on the road this Friday night in Rochester.

Hotel Utica was named the Official Hotel of the Utica Comets last week.  That means all visiting teams will stay at the historic Hotel during the season.
