Fans hoping to score tickets to the first game of the Stanley Cup Final Monday will have to shell out a lot of cash.
Full season members can expect to shell out $475 for one presale ticket if you’re a full-season member. Now when it comes to big families, “It would cost you $3,325.”
“That’s a crazy number, said Dennis Lopez, resident. “That’s not being realistic.”
Brittany Edney, Reporter: “Would you be willing to ditch your family and go solo for the $475?”
Dennis Lopez: “Most definitely. The family has been ditched. Sorry family. (laughs).
So how much is too much to pay for finals tickets?
Brittany Edney: “Break it down in your monthly budget. Is that cable or food bill?”
Garrett Miller, local resident: “That’s a mortgage and both car payments for tickets to a hockey game.”
People can also take that $475 to a market downtown, and buy four sandwich platters that feeds 12-18 people. The price: $428.67, leaving some money left over for Las Vegas Golden Knights gear.”
If you wanted a staycation, you could book a three-night stay in a Wynn Resort deluxe room for about $750 which is still less than the cheapest ticket StubHub, which is about $836 bucks.
The most expensive seat on StubHub is going for $10,000. That’s a deal compared to the nearly $30,000 someone shelled out on eBay for one of the royal wedding gift bags.
“I think there’s definitely some gauging that’s going along with it, but I hope that people that should be able to go; are able to,” said Garrett Miller, resident.
There’s one note of caution for people buying tickets on a second-hand market site: Make sure it offers a clear understanding of exactly what you’re getting, along with who to contact if there are problems.
