What's interesting is Chris Ilitch gave that URL during the official presser.


That's why I thought it was reputable. Unless he meant the Red Wings Winter Classic website.

Yeah, and if the league is complacent with this sort of bulls*** where people are going to scalpe the hell out of tickets... then there is much wrong with the Winter Classic system.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

pretty sure he meant the red wings winter classic website

if you look at the bottom of that page it says

" We are not affiliated with the Winter Classic or any box office, venue, sponsor, performer, or other organization"

Put me on the list - I already have a hotel room, so I'd hate to not be able to go to the game (that's an understatement). Hopefully, out of ~110,000 tickets, I'll be able to get just one!

Wow if 300 bucks are the cheapest you can get I guess I'm going to have to sit this one out. God damn it's hurts so much but I know I can't afford it. And neither can my friends.

Oh well we can still go to a bar in ann arbor and just get plastered during the game. It's almost as good.... right?

I didn't watch the press conference (I was at work) but I assume he was referring to http://www.detroitre...13winterclassic

I got an email saying that I might get an email saying I might get an email about buying tickets at some point if I jumped through some hoops. This is run so well...

Did it link to the DRW's 2013 Winter Classic section of their site? I got one like that, but it didn't say much, but go there to stay connected.

I was just talking to a season ticket holder and she didn't have any info on tickets just yet. Maybe some of them are getting info at different times. I wouldn't buy anything from someone on craigslist unless they have actual tickets and can tell you where the seats are.

I would really like to get some tickets too.

If the Big House sells out before non-season ticket holders get a chance to buy tickets, I'll be floored.

I'm going to that damn game.

Right there with ya. I think if you have $300, you'll be able to get in. Even if I don't get in, bet your ass I'll be outside.

Great idea. I'll be monitoring this closely. I plan on making the drive down from Toronto. Need 2 tickets...will probably pay anything.

John Collins let out a little ticket info in his latest interview with that ****** over at Yahoo...

Have tickets gone on sale yet?

The clubs' [tickets] are going on sale in the next couple of weeks. The demand from sponsors is huge at least twice as big as any previous Winter Classic. The demand from the clubs is off the charts. Everyone's calling the Detroit box office and the Toronto box office. So we're trying to figure out how many tickets the teams need or can use, and how many we can get into the general marketplace.

It's feeling as tight as Citizen's Bank was, to be honest.

Great! so anyone with connections to the team and sponsors will get tickets and the rest of us have to fight for what's left. I am sure those with priority aren't going to be limited to the number of tickets and yes I know there are 100,000 seats. I hate when there is such a frenzy for event tickets because that just make the costs go up thanks to the "re-sellers" that want to may a 200%+ profit on them.

That said...thank you for the update and I hope we get some news about when they will be available to the general public soon.

Hey guys I haven't seen any activity on here in a while and this is actually my first post. But, I wanted to say that I was able to buy 4 tickets to the Winter Classic and 4 tickets to the GLI for my wife and I. The other 2 tickets for the GLI are already spoken for, but I am looking for someone to buy my other 2 tickets to the Winter Classic. Don't know what others are seeing through Ticketmaster when they buy their's, but here is what it cost me:

2013 NHL Winter Classic
01/01/13

Section 30, Row 83
Seat 28 Season Ticket Offer US $169.00
Seat 29 Season Ticket Offer US $169.00
Seat 30 Season Ticket Offer US $169.00
Seat 31 Season Ticket Offer US $169.00



Great Lakes Invitational
12/27/12


Section 341, Row 3
Seat 8 Season Ticket Offer US $38.00
Seat 9 Season Ticket Offer US $38.00
Seat 10 Season Ticket Offer US $38.00
Seat 11 Season Ticket Offer US $38.00

At first, I was like "hey, not bad pricing", but then upon checkout I am hit with the $80/ticket for a "service fee" through Ticketmaster. Kind of pissed me off, but it's the Winter Classic!!

So basically, I am selling 2 Winter Classic tickets for $250 each. Let me know if you would like them. Ticketmaster says I will receive the tickets on or around December 1st. You can pay a deposit on them until you can see real pictures of the actual tickets when I get them in the mail.

Thanks and have a good night!

P.S. You have to email me a picture of your Red Wings jersey before you can buy them, I'm not sitting next to some Leafs fans...

This was the original thread for tracking WC tickets, but it kind of spun off into a thread of its own as information became available.

Hoping that I can find some info soon as to IF/when I could POSSIBLY purchase winter classic tix for 2014. Honestly, well aware this is going to be near impossible, and it will probably cost an arm and a leg. If that's the case, consider me one lucky bankrupt, peg legged SOB. 

 

If anyone knows of any info in the upcoming months, pleeeeaaasse make a post on this thread.
