Regular season yes, but add in a long PO run with a Cup finals and that NHL price also goes up up up.
The comparable would be 500+ for our reg season vs their reg season. Yes there's a ton of great season packages, multi pak deals and game day packages in some US NHL cities but its a supply n demand. Business model for the Cup in London supports that price point as they pre sold (deposit) 6600 tics. Yes it's going to be tough for the average fan but they did/will be sold. As I suspect they will in future OHL cities. And I expect future OHL Cup cities to charge similar amounts if not a bit more. With the proximity of so many teams and hockey fans in Ont ( unlike the spread out W and Q) they'll sell.
And yes local supporters wil have tough decisions to make.
