Winter Olympics 2014: Sochi hockey tickets are very, very expensive

Mike Stobe

The men's ice hockey gold medal game at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi has already run out of tickets. Those who did manage to acquire in them spent a lot of money while doing so.

Tickets for the 2014 men's ice hockey gold medal game at the Sochi Olympics have already become unavailable due to consumer demand, according to a report on rsport.ru on Thursday.

According to the report, the tickets were unavailable within a half hour of going on sale online. Customers were able to buy a maximum of four tickets, with prices ranging from $233 and $1,132 (United States currency).

While the tickets are no longer available, it doesn't mean that the event is sold out.

If the customers are unable to finalize the transaction within a certain period of time, the tickets will return to the market enabling another person to buy them. Unlike the application and lottery process used during the London Olympics, customers can buy tickets to the Sochi Olympics online, but are subject to a background check.

As of this time, officials have yet to decide whether any more tickets will be available at a later date.
