World Cup of Hockey will be an expensive ticket

From the Hockey News's Ken Campbell:

If you want to see the World Cup of Hockey in person next fall, it’s going to cost you a minimum of almost a hundred bucks a game. And if you’re a real high roller and have an extra $7,000 lying around, you can get the best seats in the house for every game of the tournament.

Tickets for the NHL-NHL Players’ Association cashapalooza went on sale Wednesday and ticket prices per game range from $96.65 for the cheapest to $426.06 for the most expensive. And that is based on a 17-game tournament, which will happen if the final goes three games.

Since the organizers expect all the ticket packages will sell out, there’s almost no chance there will be single-game seats available to the public, so step right up and max out your credit cards, because this ain’t going to be cheap. And get your tickets right away before the sell out, which of course will give organizers almost a full year to hold onto that money and gain the interest on millions of dollars in ticket sales.

A ticket package for the cheapest seats in the house will set you back $1,643, but don’t worry it’s in Canadian funds and the HST is included. That works out to $96.65 a game. The price jumps to $2,293 for green and blue seats, which is $134.88 per game. Red seats cost $3,193 for the event, or $187.82 per game.
