what is this tourist perspective you speak of? people arn't there to sightsee they are there to see a hockey game. southern ontario is the largest market and thats where 2/3 of the fans at this game will be from.

illitch will get his cut from all the stuff happening at comerica, that is how he is going to reward the people of detroit.

well if they aren't within a certain distance they will need hotels, then factor in restaurants, entertainment on the days surrounding the game, there are a whole slew of factors. The size of the SO market will determine the merchandise sales, ect.. but for the people attending the game it doesn't really matter where they are from, since the wings are the home team it would be preferable to get more wings fans, specifically those form the local market into the stadium. Once in the stadium they aren't oing to buy any more or less than leafs fans from SO.

How does a lottery work? I guess I don't get that part. You apply and they just randomly hand out tickets out of a hat?

The NHL doesn't give a damn about fair, they want 110,000 tickets sold. Selling as many as they can to Leafs fans will ensure that.

Well Red Wings fans could easily fill buy up the 110,000 tickets. The Red Wings have such a following around the country that they could fill it up. I know if I wasn't a poor college student I'd be buying a ticket.

they could easily sell all 110,000 tickets to red wins fans, it has nothing to do with leafs or wings, the tickets will be sold, it is a simple concept.

Would they be able to sell them at the premium Leafs fans will pay? This won't just be tickets at regular NHL prices, there will be a significant mark-up.

i live 20 minutes away from the joe and i have as good as a chance as you do. if you think about it the joe fits 20,066. at most 2/3 of that number is season tickets. call it 12k. thats only 12k of 115k. after the leafs ticket holders id say theres at least 65-75k tickets available.

This is from my ticket rep:

Full season ticket holders will be guaranteed first and foremost, then 20 game plans, and possibly 10's. As far as I know, season ticket holders will have the opportunity to purchase the other games as well (Alumni, IHL, etc).
However, there is still a lot of unknown info as well. As soon as we get a little more clarity and hard facts, I will definitely be in touch with you.

I'm guessing the Leafs will have different ways of determining who gets first crack since they don't have 10 or 20 game packs.

Probably season ticket holders (~16-17k) and then the lottery for those on the pre-sale list.

Well considering I live way away from this event, it's looking like stub hub is going to be my best option to get tickets and I know I'll be paying a price for them too <_<

Will U of M season ticket holders at the Big House get any priority whatsoever?


I have seen no indication that UM season ticket holders will have any priority. I am not sure why they should have. They are leasing the stadium to the NHL for $3 million. That's pretty much the extent of the relationship. I wouldn't mind giving priority to UM season ticket holders. Of course, it would be nice if Wings season ticket holders had priority for UM football games. LOL.

I am not sure how this lottery will work. The London Olympics lottery required full payment for the tickets to enter, then payments were refunded to the losers. Now, that is an awful way to treat a fan.

:blink:

So....what you are saying is that Leafs fans are more well-to-do than Red Wings fans?


Just because there will be a mark-up doesn't mean Leafs fans are the only ones who can afford it...I would say 99.999999999% of Wings fans do not live in the City and as a matter of fact, a ton of them live in Oakland County which is one of the wealthiest counties in the Nation....

The tix should be open to ALL hockey fans. Just block off the exact same amount for Wings fans and Leafs fans, then the rest are open to all. 36,000 for Wings all in one part of the Stadium, 36,000 for Leafs in a different part of the Stadium and 38,000 for general NHL fans who want to attend. When you order, you are asked which team or neither? Then you are given the choice of certain sections for that team only. That way we have a side with Wings fans and side with Leafs fans, then the ends are filled with random fans. (certainly of which can be Wings and Leafs fans.) Imagine the view from the blimp with all Red on one side of the field and all Blue on the other?

yes, i am sure , unless they make tickets like 1000 buck each for even the highest and lowest seats then only leafs fans who are used to ridiculous pricing would buy tickets. Like other people have said just outside of detroit there are a ton of communities with more than enough to spend on these things, and the same demand.

Since I'm in PA I hope i've got a decent shot in the lottery. I will say I'm very disappointed bu the posts of some individuals who are basically saying F me and the other out of state fans who'd love to go and get the big house rocking.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.
