Stanley Cup Game 5 tickets going for over $10K in Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH – At one of Pittsburgh’s fine watering holes on Tuesday night, I overheard a conversation about ticket prices for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final. Someone was looking for a single seat, in the lower bowl. 

She was told it would set her back upwards of $7,000.

For a hockey game. That may not even end with the Stanley Cup being raised.

But that’s what happens when Pittsburgh Penguins fans have a chance to see their team hoist the Holy Grail at home for the first time.

SeatGeek has seats at center ice, Row K, going for $8,713. They have ones on the glass, at the blue line, for $5,060 each. Mid-ice in the fourth row is going for $4,228. The cheapest ticket now is $1,393, for the upper deck.

A week ago, you could get a ticket to Game 5 for $448.

The average ticket price is $1,620, in comparison with Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final last season, which had an overall average resale price of $1,426.

The median price for tickets on Vivid Seats is $1,547. The highest price ticket? $9,250 each for Lower Level 102, Row 2.

StubHub has Upper End 217 Row L tickets for $11,754. Yes, you read that right. There’s also Club Seating on the glass for $10,579. You read that right, too.

Now we’re sorta rooting for the San Jose Sharks to win the next two games just to see what the Game 7 ticket prices end up being.
