Unless you’ve got money coming out of your ears, don’t plan to attend the Stanley Cup Finals. The tickets will cost you an arm and a leg.
The New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings put a limited number of tickets to each of their first two home games on sale for the public Monday. The face value of Rangers tickets ranged from $480 to $2,490, while Kings seats cost either $349 or $629, writes Darren Rovell of ESPN. Better yet, the eager fans went to resale sites and paid even MORE than that! If you think that’s bad just click away because you may choke if you see the Madison Square Garden prices.
If you want to see a game on the other side of the country, games 3 and 4, which will take place in New York, sold for $1,235 and $1,329 per!
It seems like everyone is a Rangers fan now,” said Jason Berger, partner in AllShows.com, one of New York City’s biggest ticket brokers. “The get-in price for the first two games is now higher than the get-in price to the Super Bowl this year.”
