    Very frustrating for me to see the prices for season tickets for some of the teams south of the border. Not only the Canadians teams are subsidizing the US teams, the American teams won the last 25 Stanley Cup but also their fans can watch live games for dirt cheap. I mean season tickets in Glendale start at $16 per ticket!!! On top of that they have to deal with only 2 preseason games (3 in Vancouver this season but normally it's 4). $24 for All U can Eat season tickets? Are you kidding me? I've seen also American teams with no home preseason game (Unless they don't include them in their season ticket prices). Wow! So in Canada, we pay high prices, we don't win (At least since 1993) and we have to buy several preseason games. Here are 2 examples: They are bad teams but we can say the same for some Canadian teams as well who are charging outrageous prices.....

    Stubhub and Ticketmaster are charging 10% to the seller and something like 20% to the buyer. Last season, I made 90% of my sales using Craigslist so no fee. I have also repeating "customers" who buy every year several games from me. I am not trying to make any money and my prices are reasonable. The little that I make pays for the tickets that I am using. Last season I was stunned that I sold 100% of the games that I tried to sell. I was lucky, I think and it's probably not representative of the reality for most of the season ticket holders. Unfortunately I am in Green Bay during the preseason Raptors game so I will not be present. I bought 4 tickets for a friend though (with the pre-sale code). I am really disappointed to miss that game but my football team is playing in Green Bay only once every 8 years and there is no way that I was going to miss that game. At the same time we will attend a Brewers game on the Saturday and visit beautiful Miller Park.

    I never share articles but I though that this was a very interesting read for our little group here....

    I got the email at 10h07AM while the sale started at 10h00AM, WTH? I was lucky to notice the email immediately though. I bough 4 tickets. Upper bowl. Row 2. I needed 6 but my limit was only 4.

    Nobody got the presale code yet right? I am in Green Bay for a football game that week-end and will not be able to attend the game but I promised 6 tickets to someone and would hate to not deliver on my words.

    Wow! How lucky can I be? I'll be in NY from November 10 to November 13 and the Canucks are playing the Rangers on November 12. On top of that my hotel is only a short walk from the MSG. I'll be there. It will be my first ever road game of the Canucks even though I'd been in several NHL arenas in the past.

    Not that it's such a big deal for me but why do we seem to always have home openers against the same teams (Calgary or Edmonton)? There are 31 different teams in the league... I also follow Montreal. They have their home opener against the Kings this year. Every season is usually a different opponent for them.

    We already knew that we won't have any home games during the Holidays because of the world's juniors. This is a second bad news for us. I agree with you. Worst possible schedule. 3 games mid-week in 72 hours? I don't mind going when my tickets don't sell but geez I have zero interest spending 3 consecutive nights watching live preseason games especially the first 3 games of the calendar.

    During session 12 there were 3 seats row 9 by the aisle in section 301 . A couple who had only a pair took them and just bought a 3rd season ticket (From what I understood sitting in row 11) because they couldn't leave a single seat.

    9 & 10.
  11. 2018-2019 Canucks season tickets thread

    315 to 301 for me. Row 11 for both. You're right. With our seniority, after the next good season of the Canucks, we will have the opportunity of moving back there just before the band wagoners can select their seats.

    I literally moved my seats from UB4 Offensive zone to UB4 defensive zone. Same view, same row. I decided to take the $169 difference for a pair because I am a cheapsake. .

    Good point. Maybe I need to think a little bit more long term.
  14. 2018-2019 Canucks season tickets thread

    Offensive Zone UBIV is row 9 to row 15. What about defensive zone?
