2016-17 Fan-to-Fan Ticket Resales (Rules in OP)

We give users the opportunity to buy tickets from and sell tickets to other HF Rangers fans at the discretion of moderators and administrators. We think it's a great way to meet people, and it's always nice when we fill Madison Square Garden with those we know will really appreciate attending a game! Please keep the following guidelines in mind when posting individual game tickets for sale in this thread:
  • Be sure to list the section, row, and seat numbers of the tickets you're selling. You may also wish to include other information like "more leg room!" or "Rangers shoot twice!"
  • List your asking price and any shipping costs or seller fees if applicable. Site administration has reminded us that selling tickets for more than face value is not permitted by law in many jurisdictions, so it will not be allowed here. However, you can always sell below face value if you so desire or list tickets at face value and include reasonable charges (such as PayPal fees) that would otherwise come out of your pocket. You MUST list a price. Posts with no prices or that say "PM me for prices" will be deleted and violators subject to moderator action.
  • Making the sale of tickets or making the price of tickets contingent on the purchase of pre-season tickets or other items is strictly prohibited.
  • Remember to mark your post as SOLD once the tickets are sold.
  • Please don't over-post your tickets; we want to give everyone a chance to post tickets if they have them.
  • Anyone posting games for sale at face value or lower and then raising the prices to market value when prospective purchasers make contact via PM will be banned from the ticket resale thread and subject to additional moderator action up to and including a ban from the site.
  • We reserve the right to temporarily close or permanently terminate this thread if it becomes unmanageable or if the rules are being too frequently violated.
  • The rules are not negotiable, but any feedback you have must be submitted to complaints@hfboards.com.

I've called up the Garden directly and gotten blocks of tickets for groups ranging anywhere between 8 and 20.

Yeah, you can try group sales. I know someone who bought 12 for a game last season. HOWEVER, they have quirky rules. For about 1/2 the games they will tell you you must buy an equal number of tickets to another game. So, if you want the weekend afternoon game against Washington in February, you may also have to buy the game against the Canucks or Oilers, as well. You MIGHT be able to work with them and instead of taking a 2nd game, take tickets to a kids show or circus or something like that, which would be cheaper.

But, I would definitely call them, worst they can tell you is they can't help you. Secondly, the tickets will be more expensive than STH price or any plan price. Probably close to the same as if not more than individual ticket price.

If you haven't sat in the 200-level barstools, try them. You will not regret it.

Can someone explain to me the seating in the new garden? I've been there a couple of times since the renovation but have lived out of town for the last two years. I thought for some reason that they just got rid of the 300s but the 400s are still the nosebleeds but I looked at a seating chart and it seems like the 400s are just the nosebleeds not in the center and the higher 200s are now what the 400s used to be. It's harder to figure out if I'm getting a good deal or not if I don't know what the sections are. Thanks.

Worst seats in msg are the 400 back rows. Anything 3+ isn't worth while.

After that, the views are good. Upper 200s are up far, but not as far back as it used to be. Above row 17, you miss most of the scoreboard, but there are big screens on the back of the bridge.

The bridge hovers over the 200s level. Rows 1-3 match the 200s in terms of how far back they are, but are higher up, giving an overhead like view.

Thanks, I'm finding a lot of tickets in the 20+ range in the 200s that are decent deals. Are those the 300s of prior years or 400s at that point?

The 400 level that exists now is the same concrete decking that existed before (with different row lengths). What they did was add a roof level above it, which is the 300 level (has nothing to do with the old 300 level pre-renovation), also known as the balcony level or bridge level. Yes the 300's are HIGHER than the 400's but they are selling it as a premium level because the seats are slightly closer to the playing surface. That deck has also sandwiched in those 400 level seats so if you're in row 6 or 7 part of the net may be blocked

Please remember the rules as we routinely inspect the thread to make sure they are being followed.

Specifically, if you are selling, you must clearly list the game being sold, face value, and asking price (at or below face only). You cannot list one thing here and ask for a higher price via PM. If we are notified of that occurring, you'll be excluded from participating.

Thanks.

Years ago I saw some website that you could post a map or similar and then people could pin their location. Can't for the life of me figure out where that was. Would definitely be cool to post a seating chart of MSG and have posters mark their locations.

should we be asking GG to add a 'list price' a column to his chart?

Check the 1st post in the STH thread under partial plan.

(http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=2126921)

But the guy giacomin1 who posted in Section 206 has row 2 gallery seats on the end which are $103 for full season and $130 for partials. His $130 is accurate. Someone who bought those seats on ticketmaster could have paid something completely different

But your seats in 224 don't make any sense to me. Center 200's rows 3 through 14 should be $122 full season & $149 partial
Exactly. There's no such thing as "face" value anymore which is why I think the 1st post in the thread needs to be rewritten but I'm not going to argue it anymore. I just won't list my tickets here.

Yeah, good point. The same ticket now runs a wide range of prices. Not sure how we are really supposed to know what "face" even means any more.

It's a good point but I don't know what the Mods can do about.

Nothing you can do. The face value thing is above the mods. I've voiced my displeasure about it a few times but I have a feeling it's either a "take the person posting the tickets at their word about their face" type deal or there's no thread at all unfortunately. I'd rather there be no rules about face in general but that doesn't appear to be an option.

It's not so much about changing the policy (it is what it is) but clarifying it so you know what's OK and what isn't. If the rule is that you can't ask for more than what you paid (what I think it is) then the policy should say exactly that. If the rule is something else then the policy needs to specify what that rule is. We should not be asked to interpret a badly worded policy.

Basically I think the point of "face" here is what's printed on the ticket (plus any fees from the direct seller, ie the rangers or ticketmaster). I think they're worried about sellers making a profit here, which I guess is not legal in certain jurisdictions, and it's easier to have a blanket policy across all of hf than to try and enforce it on a case by case basis.

If you buy an electronic ticket on stubhub, the price printed on the ticket will be the amount the seller paid, not what you paid. So what is "face" value?

It may seem like an extreme situation but it happens fairly regularly.

It is very messed up for Oct/Nov but come Jan/Feb it's going to be cheap. People are now paying $240 for my seats in 222 for January games

It's not structure as much as it is the plan.

Every seat can be full STH, half STH, mini plan, box office....and double that for new and old business... add to that the premium for aisle seats.

Hi Everyone,

My girlfriend and I are travelling down to New York in April to visit your city. I'm quite excited as this will be my first time being in NYC and being a die-hard hockey fan I want to hit up a Ranger's game/MSG. We will be in town for the April 9th game against the Penguins. I realize this is the last game of the season and last home game against a rival team so tickets won't exactly be cheap. However I've been to games in Montreal, Toronto, and Boston so I am fine with paying face value prices.

Thanks in advance for any pointers/suggestions. Hope to get to a game.
