    I bet they do not want to have one
    empty seat next to 2 sold seats.

    That is indeed the reason. If there's a group of seats together, they do not want a single left behind. Is very annoying when I'm trying to get a seat for a game that's not in my Half Season plan because I am usually solo for games. :P

    We aren't really thrilled with the games offered in our mini plan. Selling these games in 302 row H for $90 per pair.

    ALL SOLD. Thank you everyone.

    Looking for 2 tix against the Leafs on 10/9. Would prefer hard tickets as a memento.

    PM me with thoughts and prices

    They got rid of hard tickets a few years ago.

    Funny how the wings games are now as desirable as the canes

    Stupid question: how much are tickets to a Stanley Cup Final? Hypothetical game 7? I'd imagine the cheap seats would be at least 1000 bucks.

    Hey, guys. I'll be honest, I'm a Wings fan from Alabama. I'll be in Tampa for work on Feb 9, and am looking to go to the Lighting/Pens game that night. Unfortunately, I'm not seeing any tickets for less than $100. If I could find a ticket for less than $80, I'll even buy a Lightning shirt since I definitely won't be cheering for Pitt.

    So I guess I have 2 questions:

    1. Is anyone willing to sell a ticket for less than or equal to $80?
    2. What's the likelihood that I could find a ticket outside the arena before the game?

    Thanks for the help.

    I actually have one available for less than that. I'm a Half Season STM so my price per seat is definitely less than $80. PM me for more info.

    Hey everyone I am looking at coming down to Tampa for games 1 and 2 of the Stanley cup playoffs. I have a couple questions.

    1. Will I have to buy re sale tickets? or can I get at box office?

    2. How much should I expect to pay for lower bowl 10 or so rows up in Tampa shoots twice end? How much for something higher in the second bowl but still decent?

    Any other advice?

    Thanks everyone. Estimates are perfectly fine.

    Sorry for the delay in responding, but my Section 330 seat was about $150.00 (normally a $50 seat) for Round 3. So the SCF would have most likely been more like $200 or $250 per game. But that's for a half season ticket member so I do get a discount on my seat. Section 330 isn't bad at all as I'm on the side only one section over from center ice and my row is not far up so I have an excellent view. :DD

    Game 7? Probably about $500 via resale. :dunno:

    I answered your questions via Conversation. :)

    Basically, y'all want to purchase your tickets via ticketmaster/tampabaylightning.com if you want to get good actual seats. Though the ticketmaster fees are getting ridiculous.

    Updating this because I just got my 2019 Playoff tickets invoice. :cool:

    As a Half-Season STM, I will be paying the following for my seat in Section 330 about a third of the way up.
    Round 1 - $60 per game
    Round 2 - $81 per game
    Round 3 - $110 per game
    Round 4 - $175 per game

    This is with a STM discount so add more for non-STM and double the cost for lower bowl seats for the early rounds. SCF (if we make it that far) would probably triple the prices listed.

    Won't be much selection available from the box office for playoff games unless you are looking for a single seat or reeeeeeally high up ones. Resale will not be cheap, but is probably your best bet to get confirmed tickets.

    To get an idea of what the view is from any seat/section, check out the virtual arena app below. Just remember that the prices they list are a few years old and for regular games, not playoff games. :DD

    We are definitely not renewing our 10 game plan. If anyone is interested in it for next year, let me know. It's the B plan and in 302 row H close to the aisle. I think next year's cost is $920 for the two seats. When the cards arrive, we'll just drop them in the mail to you.

    EDIT: Found someone to take them off our hands.

    Anyone know what the story is regarding playoff tickets? The release they put out says there is a sale for their insider email subscribers on the 29th, but I've yet to get any sort of notice or code for that. Last year they did the text thing, but it wasn't mentioned in the release and I unsubscribed to that after last year's playoffs. The Lightning website doesn't seem to have any info.

    I was emailed a code to use today for the first round and a link to go through. The email came around 12:40 PM and the pre-sale was at 1:00 PM.

    That was for the current season ticket members, I'm seeking info for those of us that are just on the email list after the season ticket holders get their fill. Though interesting that they didn't give you much notice, the release I saw didn't even give the time of day for the season ticket holders sale or the email list sale. Did they send anything else out in advance?

    I just looked and they sent an email on the 21st telling us that it's on the 27th at 1:00 PM and that we'll get an email 15 minutes prior to the sale.

    Just picked up my tickets for game 1 & 2

    250 usd per ticket. Ouch. Can’t imagine what the price will be for the cup final.

    Keep in mind we’re from Canada where we get mauled on the dollar exchange.
