Single game tickets would be great.  Hoping to catch the Americans play both the Swedes and Finns, as well as the Canada warmup games.

Can't wait for this to start. If I had jumped on this earlier instead of getting the Vancouver package in February, I may have gotten better seats but I can't complain about where I'm at.

I may wait until closer to the event. See if anyone can't make it to a game of my liking and attend that way.

Due to reasons I was never able to buy the full package like I hoped.  My only hope now is for single game tickets.  Hopefully the secondary market for single tickets isn't too crazy.

 

Slovakia plays Finland on my birthday.  That would be a great day to go to a game.

Going to make the trip over to see Canada play both the Czechs and the Russians.  Upper bowl for the Czech game and ice level behind the net for the Russians.  Bucket list item checked off.

Limited quantities of single-game tickets in Victoria will be available at a later date.

Hoping to see Sweden-Finland and USA-Slovakia.

They must be seats that were held back or something.

 

If you go to the ticket site right now to try and buy a ticket package, there is only one seat left in the entire rink.

Got 2 tickets to the Canada game on Boxing Day, and got 2 tickets to the Gold Medal game. 

 

Canada Day tickets were $112 each (side Canada shoots twice) and Gold Medal tickets were $160 each (on the corner). 

 

Also volunteering with Hockey Canada during the tournament at Rogers Arena. $500 of free Nike Hockey Canada apparel, free meals, and being able to be around the environment for 2 weeks was quite appealing to me. Plus, I'm off work for the holidays anyways!

Anyone have more information on this? I'd love to go and watch this for sure.

I haven't seen anything since the announcement.

 

The pre-tournament games in Victoria were included in the full tournament package and those packages sold out, so it doesn't look like there will be any single game tickets here.  The only chance I guess, other than the secondary market, is if they release some tickets that the teams don't use, closer to game day.

December 20th, here in Kamloops.

USA vs Russia 

 

I have 5 sweet front row balcony tickets over the one of the the circles.

Cost me less than 140 bucks. 

 

I’ll be able to see Hughes and possibly both. My seats are in my regular spot, right over top of the play where you can literally talk (yell) to the players. Really looking forward to it. 

 

As much as I love the WJHC, I’d rather sit in the comfort my own house, with my own facilities, and watch these many games than hang out in crowded, dope-smelly Vancouver or at the rink where there are obscured views of the game, lines and waits between games. 

 

I plan my work year so I can have enough time off to watch the entire tournament. Haven’t missed it at all since the late 90’s and only a few games dating back to the epic brawl with Russia. This is the best hockey on the planet, IMO. No politics, but I wonder if ultra-liberal Vancouver and Victoria will have some pregame nonsense to inject some politics into it. That’s the beauty of watching from Home and my options with the remote... fast fwd.

Still plenty of quality tickets left. The modern Sandman hotel is next door. 

 

This game is a cheap alternative to a marquee WJHC game in Van/Vic if you live outside of those areas. 

 

Consider this game as an option.

It's not a cheap alternative when you add in the cost of the ferry for those of us on the island.

 

It sounds like you got some great seats.  If I still lived in Kamloops (I lived there when Iggy was a Blazer) I would be going for sure.  I'm surprised there are lots of tickets left.  I would have thought that game would sell out fast there.
