Red Wings to sell Winter Classic tickets to season ticket-holders from June 25-28

The Red Wings already spilled the beans on ticket pricing for the Red Wings-Maple Leafs Alumni game and Winter Classic, and a certain TMR reader I’ll call “Bob Rouse” informed me that the team will officially start selling those tickets to partial and full season ticket-holders between June 25th and 28th, with every STH’er allowed to purchase 2 tickets per 1 season ticket seat they call their own.

As my pal Taylor noted on Twitter, scuttlebutt out of Toronto suggests that the remaining tickets out of the 40,000 allotted to the Wings, 40,000 allotted to the Leafs and whatever other number of the 113,000 total tickets available for the event are gobbled up by the NHL and its sponsors will probably be made available to fans via a lottery later in the summer, so there will probably be some sort of public sale, but we should expect that we’re talking about something like no more than 30,000 seats made available to the general public.

Here’s what the Wings sent “Bob Rouse” (sorry, I’m bad at making up names, and I still miss Bob Rouse):

The “FAQ” are already up, and “Bob” also took note of the event schedule for Comerica Park, which includes the following aberration:

Dec. 31 2012 MAPLE LEAFS vs. RED WINGS ALUMNI SHOWDOWN™

Game 8 - Maple Leafs Alumni vs. Red Wings Alumni (Game 1)
Game 9 - Maple Leafs Alumni vs. Red Wings Alumni (Game 2)

Online sales have already started.  It appears they are doing it in blocks of 3 days time, and by seniority.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
