If nosebleed is my only option so be it. I can record the game. I'm not sure I'll see another game like this in my lifetime. Though that logic may justify me dishing out the cash for better seats. I do have enough saved up.
And that photo looks to be taken from the $249 seats. Is that a base runner standing near center ice? Ouch.
I agree. I have gone over nearly every view in the place and prices. I am still wondering what the heck I am going to do. Doesn't seem like any view is all that great to be honest.
I really wish they would have just built a large grand stand with seats right near the rink. It makes way more sense to have had all the seats in a grand stand that was built in the outfield then the seats hundreds of feet away and low. just my opinion though.
Also, any other fellow season ticket holders know what days they are able to get presale tickets?
I am wednesday.
That view is exactly why I don't get the hoopla about the outdoor games. You are so far away.
It's also exactly why the NHL loves them. Look at that pricing chart, I'm sure the average ticket price is significantly above the normal ticket price of Staples or Ponda. And you get to sell thousands more tickets than normal. Dodger Stadium seats 53,000 for baseball. Just say they only use 40k seats for the outdoor game (previous Winter Classics have generally sold more tickets than the home stadium/sport capacity), then they have more than doubled the # of tickets sold.
It will be interesting to see how many seats they sell. The prices will absolutely keep a lot of people away. Original 6 teams whose fans grew up playing the game outdoors in winter have a much bigger attraction than sun belt teams whose fans cannot share a similar experience, especially since the game is not being played in cold winter weather.
This is not meant as a criticism of those who want to attend and enjoy it for the ambiance and what it is, just wondering how many fans it will actually attract at those prices.
It would have been so much better to orientate the rink along the home plate-mound-second base axis and build temporary seats in the outfield to bring the fans closer.
I think I'll pass on this game. Driving to Dodger Stadium to watch a game with binoculars in 50-60 deg weather and spending $800+ on four seats doesn't sound like fun for me. I hope the seat allocation process is fair to Ducks fans who want to go.
I still think that's too big. It seems to me an intermediate choice would be the StubHub (Home Depot) Center. I wonder if that was considered too small? They could have put in field seats or something.
