    Just announced a Canada v team GB friendly for may 5th. I am amused by the ticket prices

    Personally I think the Czech Republic should host it more often.

    2015 was a great tournament. Maybe I think that way because Canada sent a juggernaut borderline Olympic best on best A level team, but I genuinely thought the Czechs did a great job hosting it.

    Only a couple of hundred tickets left looking at the website. I reckon they'll try and sort out some temporary seating at the stage end to sell another couple of hundred.

    It's a bit steep price wise but when are we going to get an opportunity to see a team Canada full of NHLers (even if it's a poor selection) in the UK?

    I'd like to think the NHL would notice a friendly against canada selling 7000+ in 24 hours and consider a Global series game, but realistically there's easier opportunities out there in Europe.

    Talked to someone in nottingham and he figures 50% of the tickets will end up on the secondary market

    I'm sure they'll be some, but 50% seems a bit OTT. I'd doubt there'd be half as many, but we'll see if there's many gaps in the crowd.

    Oilers v sharks in cologne germany ended up being 45% of its were flipped on secondary markets

    There is a reason why at the worlds there are so many empty seats sometimes

    How much are the tickets when you wrote the thread, out of interest?

    Those who bought tickets on secondary sites are taking a bath
