Lawyers representing a group of Philadelphia Flyers season ticket-holders have sued in New Jersey
court over the team's policy regarding tickets to the outdoor Winter Classic.

Jenkintown, Pa.-based Stern & Eisenberg filed the suit against Comcast-Spectacor in Mercer County Superior Court. They say it breached its contract by forcing season ticket holders to purchase tickets to the Jan. 2 Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park separately and at a higher price.

The suit says fans who bought a 44-game season ticket package for 2011-2012 got only 43 tickets. The plaintiffs say those who bought season tickets got a mock Winter Classic ticket and were told they would have to purchase those tickets separately.

The Legal Intelligencer reports thousands of ticketholders could be affected. Comcast-Spectacor did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
