It looks like the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens are going to Game 6 after all. The teams will face off at Montreal's Bell Centre on Saturday, where fans will be able to watch a Canadian NHL game in person for the first time since the pandemic started.
As promised, 2,500 spectators will be permitted into the arena as of May 29, but tickets aren't cheap on resale sites right now and so fans will have to pay a small fortune if they wish to attend.*
According to Ticketmaster, the cheapest seats available right now are just under $1,600 each. To sit in the 100-level ring of the arena, fans will have to shell out at least $1,736. The most expensive tickets for sale are in section 115, Row G, for a cool $8,060 each.
Leafs and Habs fans will also have to buy tickets in pairs as Ticketmaster does not appear to be selling single seats for this highly-anticipated game — Narcity has reached out to confirm this and will update the story when we receive a response.
One fan tweeted their estimated total for two tickets, which came out to a whopping $4,498.29.
"Gonna need all the rich Leafs fans out there to buy tickets and flood Bell Centre on Saturday," tweeted one fan. Another Twitter user wrote in the same thread: "Some of us are broke recent grads who make poor financial decisions but we'll be representing."
