Tickets for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals in Denver are selling for an average of $1,375, according to Vivid Seats.
The Colorado Avalanche have a 3-1 lead over the Tampa Bay Lightning and can win the Stanley Cup at home Friday night.
The average price is the highest of any Avalanche home playoff game in the playoffs and the first average price to cross $1,000. The average price for Game 1 at Vivid Seats was $859, while Game 2 averaged $943.
The average price of $1,375 is the highest of any event held at the Ball Arena since 2010, with the other two Stanley Cup Finals home games placing second and third. After that is an Adele concert in July 2016, for which tickets averaged $468 on the resale market.
The average ticket price for Game 5 in Denver dwarfs prices for some recent Stanley Cup Final home team tiebreakers, such as the Lightning’s 2021 Game 5 win over the Montreal Canadiens (1 $022); the Boston Bruins’ Game 7 loss of 2019 to the St. Louis Blues ($1,316); the 2015 Chicago Blackhawks win over the Lightning ($1,232); and the Los Angeles Kings’ 2014 Game 5 win over the New York Rangers ($895).
StubHub, meanwhile, reports that Friday night’s game has an average price of $1,629 for tickets sold. The cheapest ticket available for the game is $1,410. Ticket sales are up 60% in the past 24 hours after the Avalanche won Game 4 in overtime in Tampa.
