how much revenue does that one event bring in? it brings in probably the same revenue as 8 normal games combined.

the average ticket price is 186 dollars to the just cancelled game, seats available (considering they were trying to break the all time attendance record for a ice hockey game at 104,173) lets use that number. that would mean this one game would of brought in 19,376,178 in revenue. that is one of the 4 games that were said to be played that weekend. 1 ohl, and 1 ahl, and also an alumni game was also to be played at another baseball field.

so that one weekend they just cancelled cost the league/players close to probably 22-23 million in revenue.

those numbers are just attendance, doesn't include parking, doesn't include concession stands.
