I think the Habs are a little different, if you want tickets as a player you have to buy the full season, and you can not re sell them.

One of my friends knows someone who works at the Bell Center and he always gets unused tickets at the last minute, even playoff games.

If you check on gamedays, at the box office, you can sometimes find tickets. Not online, though.

Most of times, those are in Section Desjardins (singles, sometimes pairs).

Me and my buddies have been buying season ticket for a few years and I've been told they have raised the price this year again ? Some administration fees out of nowhere that never existed before?!

Oh and for the other season ticket holders, any news on the all-star game?

Do we get free tickets (yeah right, one can hope though!) or reserved tickets we can choose to take or no priviledge at all...

Hey Guys,


I have a question about those 10 game packs. Is there some sort of pre required registration that you have to do ( like for seasons or does it just work like regular season tickets do ( as in you just go online at the right time and go from there)??

The 10 game pack is exactly like regular season tickets... you go to either the Bell Center, online, or on the phone... and try to get lucky!

Yup, the price have gone up (about 6-7%) and no news on the All-star game.

I would recommend phone. Last year, the admission website said tickets were still available, so I tried for a ten-pack in the whites, but my requests kept getting denied.

I finally tried by phone, and the operator was able to get me a 10-pack, with 8 of the games in the whites, 1 in the grey, and one in the blues. The website didn't have that sort of flexibility.

Whats the odds of successfully grabbing 4 seats to one of the leafs saturday games in march and how quickly do those games sell out? A couple of us want to come up for a game and it has to be a saturday night game and all the other match ups look boring. If we can't get through before they sell out do stub hubbers normally hike up the price of those games more than other games. Gameday scalpers aren't an option unfortunately

This was taken from the official Habs forum and was posted by ADMIN.

Individual tickets go on sale in mid-September but no date has been decided or confirmed just yet.

As for the tickets available the 15th of each month, there's no confirmation yet on that for this season. That doesn't mean it won't happen or that it will; it just means the sales department is working on the details for all the tickets for this year.

There is no way to get a presale code unless you were a season or partial plan ticket holder last year. Those with presale codes cannot transfer their codes or sell their codes.

Once all the ticket information (individual tickets, partial plans etc.) is finalized, it will be available on the main site. This will likely be in mid-to-late August.

Last year I tried to get ticket with my friend. We were both online during 2 hours while being on the phone to get tickets. We never got tickets

Sure we wanted tickets for a saturday game since we are from Saguenay but still I think that you have to be lucky too

You have to be ready the day of the beginning of the sale. It can take like 3 or 4 hours and you won't be able to get a PAIR. I tried Pittsburgh last year. All 2 seats where sold after 3 hours

Actually, last year my best friend's son showed up and joined us for our annual Habs jamboree. I tried to get a ticket at the box office and on line. No luck, until . . . at about 3:00 am game day just before I went to bed I got a single ticket on line.

I'm not saying you can depend on it, but it can be done

Must be nice. No chance doing that now. Getting individual tickets for any game in the first couple months of the season the second they go on sale is impossible (during the dogs days of the season, it's possible, but the seats aren't always that great). In fact, if you want to get on the waiting list for either season tickets or game packs (plus the chance to buy individual tix before the general public) in Calgary, it costs $100 per season per seat, and takes roughly 2-4 years to get a sniff. Redonkulous.

I think I'm making a trip to Montreal in March, and I have a hard time believing I have a better chance at Habs tickets than Flames.
