“Stanley Cup Finals demand in Denver has considerably outpaced Tampa during this series, and fan excitement keeps rising with the Avalanche now just one win away from claiming the Stanley Cup,” said Michael Silveira, a StubHub spokesman, in a Thursday statement to The Denver Post. “Ticket sales for Game 5 have jumped 60% in the past 24 hours. There’s nothing like the energy in an arena when a team is home for a potential championship-clinching game, so we encourage fans to lock in the ticket if they see a seat they want, as sales are moving fast for this once-in-a-lifetime experience.”
The average Game 5 ticket price sold through StubHub is $1,629, according to a Thursday news release.
However, similarly to earlier rounds, the high-end ticket cost has skyrocketed for the Cup Final. The most expensive ticket is currently listed at $27,320 to sit on Row 6 of Section 148 (via StubHub).
