So, those people in Vancouver really like their hockey, don’t they? Tickets for the Stanley Cup Finals have been ridiculous to come by for the first three games at Rogers Arena between the Canucks and Boston Bruins, but they’ve taken off to new heights for Game 7 on Wednesday night.
According to the fantastic SeatGeek.com, tickets can still be purchased three hours before Game 7, but you’ll need almost $2000 just for the worst seats in the building. If you have the audacity to think about sitting in the lower level, SeatGeek calls a $4000 seat a “great deal,” while you could potentially pay as much as $8500 or even closer to $9000 for a single seat.
SeatGeek’s Ben Kessler told TSN that the average price of tickets for Game 7 is higher than that of the Super Bowl this past year in Dallas and the Olympic Gold Medal game in Vancouver last February.
There’s a suite for sale on StubHub for $205,888. No idea how many people that would hold, but my God, that’s a lot of money. If I were in Vancouver, I’d just be watching the game in the streets with 100,000 of my closest friends. Cheaper beer, anyway.
