USA - Canada Olympic Hockey Tickets for Dream Match Up Hotter Than Super Bowl(February 27, 2010)
PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/10 -- FanSnap®, the largest live event ticket search engine for fans, today announced that Olympic Gold Medal hockey tickets are available for the most highly anticipated matchup of the Winter Games, and perhaps in the history of Canadian sports.
Tickets to see Team USA play Team Canada for Olympic Hockey gold are averaging $4,313. That's more than three times the average price of Stanley Cup Finals tickets and $1,000 more than the average price for Super Bowl tickets.
"U.S. and Canadian hockey fans who missed out on an NHL All Star Game this year, are getting something even better as the Sharks' Joe Thornton, Penguins' Sidney Crosby, Rangers' Chris Drury and Sabres' Ryan Miller and their teammates face off on behalf of their countries," said FanSnap CEO Mike Janes.
Prices for Olympic Gold Medal hockey tickets have mirrored Canadian fans' excitement for their national team's prospects throughout the Winter Games. Prices started high and rose to nearly $5000 per ticket following early wins by Team Canada. Average ticket prices then plummeted after the Team USA win over the host team. Prices continued to decline to $3,613 until the inspiring Canadian win over Russia. Gold Medal game ticket prices have rebounded strongly as it became apparent there would be a USA - Canada rematch in the final, and are now $4,313.
