The ticket tax is already at roughly 7% per ducat and has been for a while -

- This above quote is old of course, and now we know that it's being contributed towards the costs of the arena to the tune of $125 million.

The current tax brings in approximately 2M/yr. as per an article on Friday.

That means when the new arena opens, Northlands will lose the roughly $2 million a year it gets from the current ticket tax,
This is a fraction of what the new surcharge must bring in.
