So, how hot are Winnipeg Jets tickets for the team’s inaugural season in the reseller’s market? Sizzling hot.
Try $3,280 for a lower-deck seat for the home opener against the Montreal Canadiens on the popular ticket reseller site Stubhub.com. And yes, that’s for one seat in the 100-level.
A pair of these puppies for the opening game will run you $6,560. Ouch. The cheapest ticket on StubHub for that game is $844 in the upper decks. Yes, one ticket.
Ticket prices for Jets home games drop off markedly after that.
Resale tickets in markets like Montreal and Toronto are pretty pricey even without the novelty of having a new team in their town. A top ticket for Montreal’s home opener Oct. 13 against Calgary on the resale market would cost you $500.
In Toronto, their home opener against the Habs is going for a staggering $1,143 on resale.
In Edmonton, a lower-deck ticket on the resale market for the Oilers home opener is $399.
So that gives you some perspective on just how hot this ticket market is.
In Canada, mebbe. Small-market teams in the US ain't doin' so hot right now or so I've heard, and this does not bode well for hockey. I don't wanna see another lock-out, thankyaverymuch.
