Why are you so offended bro?
This is a serious question? What's the reason why ticket prices are so high here? And i'm not just talking Vancouver, i'm talking all throughout Canada. Are hockey tickets that premium that we have to spend so much.
Why are the same tickets in the USA over 50% cheaper. The only thing i can think of is that the organization knows people will pay whatever the cost of the tickets are. This is pretty much legally stealing. I wouldn't mind paying that much if the Canucks had at least 1 stanley cup banner. But no. The premium is there for no reason. It's not like those high priced tickets has contributed to stanley cup rings.
Because people here are willing to pay that much. If they charge anything over $50 per in markets like Phoenix, LA, etc., the rinks are empty. They could charge $500 per ticket in Canadian markets and the buildings would still be full.
The premium is there because hockey is Canada. Canada is hockey. If you don't like it, move to LA. It's cheaper to move there than it is to buy a Canuck ticket
