Fans of Winnipeg’s new NHL franchise are being asked to pay a higher price for tickets on average than all but one existing Canadian team.
True North Sports and Entertainment will open a pre-sale on season packages at 2 p.m. ET Wednesday. Ticket-holders and corporate partners of the American Hockey League’s Manitoba Moose will be given the first chance to buy seats before they’re opened to the general public on Saturday.
Seats at the MTS Centre will be priced over seven different tiers at an average of $82—the same price Montreal Canadiens fans paid last year at the Bell Centre and behind only the Toronto Maple Leafs ($114 average) in Canada, according to the most recent franchise valuations by Forbes.
The new Winnipeg owners are hoping to get commitments for 13,000 season seats before the NHL board of governors meet June 21 to vote on the sale of the team.
