Important Notice Regarding The Ticket Sale At The Bell Centre

Quote:
*IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING THE TICKET SALE AT THE BELL CENTRE. In order to ensure Canadiens fans have equal access to tickets, a random numbered wristband draw will take place. Beginning Tuesday, April 18, you can come to the Bell Centre Ticket office to get a numbered wristband. The draw will take place Wednesday morning at 11:00 a.m. (Anyone with a wristband must be at the Bell Centre at 10:00 a.m.). The line will then be arranged according to the random number selected. Everybody gets a chance to be first in line!

looks like they will do it for any big events at the bell centre to prevent scalpers.

They do the same thing for the Madonna ticket and the system seems to have work at perfection.
No need to camp, no scalper reseling ticket 10 times the price, its good buisness.

No, let say the number selected in the draw is 2000. Whoever has that number will get his tickets first followed by 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 etc...will get in line in that order. 1999 Will be the last person to have a chance to score some tickets

Just saw on canadians.com that the prices for seats have gone up for the playoffs...is this always the case? Do season ticket holders get first option at the price they pay all year? Man, the scalpers must make some serious cash now...

From what I understand, they say she arrived 20 minutes before her number was picked. She probably got her wristband yesterday before 18:00 like everyone else.
