  1. What are ticket prices like in your home country for your favorite team? An average or a high and a low would be a great bit of information to have. Thank you in advance.

    I know I saw on sportsnet a while ago, that Ak Bars Kazan's avg ticket price is like $5 dollars Cdn. and they play in an arena that seats 3,500 people. They are paying these guys to win the championship this year and will take almost all of their $80 million in payroll in losses this year. Not sure how long they will be able to keep this up.

    My favorite team, Espoo Blues, has tickets from 13 to 25 euros.
    There has been no changes in prices during the lockout. At the moment Mike Ribeiro is only lockout player in the team.

    That's interesting. Espoo's lowest price is quite a bit higher than Atlanta's lowest ($10.) I guess the low-priced seats in Espoo are probably a lot closer to the ice, though.

    Here in Mannheim it costs 13 Euro a ticket (the stands cost ... about 25 euro ... I guess). There is no seating, standing only so you can go where ever you like. The crowds are wild and always alive. It is like going to a soccer game with the noise.

    £12 adults, £6 concessions. Which is pretty good.

    Although as team sponsor we get in free :yo:
     
  9. Great information. I've tried to visit some of the European ticket agents but can't read the languages in question (I have a hard enough time with english!). Are those ticket prices in Euros?

    Go to eurohockey.net then click on country then click team then click home ice and you will get the seating capacity and ticket prices for most teams in Europe. Average ticket price in Europe for top level hockey seems to be between 10-25 euros.

    You could put together a Super League in Europe and Russia and likely support 12 teams with an average salary of about $200,000 but if players decide to play in this league I can see them being black listed from ever coming back to play in the new NHL.
