Want To See Blackhawks-Bruins In Cup Finals? Prepare To Pay



    Hawks Tickets a Hot Commodity

    Ticket brokers say Chicago Blackhawks tickets are selling better than the last run for the Stanley Cup. Christian Farr reports. (Published Monday, June 10, 2013)

    The hottest ticket in Chicago currently costs an average of $1,422.03.

    That's the going rate for Blackhawks fans to see their team take on the Bruins in the Stanley Cup Finals at the United Center, according to TiqIQ, a New York City-based company that aggregates tickets sold on StubHub, Ticketnetwork, Ticketsnow and eBay.

    If it sounds like a lot, consider this: Fans paid 26 percent more for Hawks games during the 2010 Cup Finals, when the average ticket price was $1,923.13.

    Chris Matcovich, vice president of data and communications for New York City-based TiqIQ, said the average ticket price for all four possible home Hawks games are as follows: $1,131.82 for Game 1, $1,196.62 for Game 2, $1,668.77 for Game 3 and $1,917.77 for Game 4.

    Comparatively, the average price for all possible Bruins home games is currently $1,380.38, a 29.78 percent increase from their Stanley Cup win in 2011.

    Hawks fans also are willing to stand. Matcovich says the current average for standing-room-only tickets is $278.34. That tops out during a possible home Game 4 at $711.02.
