The 2019 Stanley Cup Finals matchup is finally set, with the Boston Bruins – who have been waiting around to see who their opponent would be after sweeping the Carolina Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference Semifinals – taking on the St. Louis Blues, who have clinched their first Stanley Cup Finals berth since 1970 with a victory over the San Jose Sharks in six games in the Western Conference Finals.
Fans can expect tickets for this year’s Stanley Cup to be in huge demand given the die-hard fan bases of each of these two franchises, as well as the aforementioned frenzy that St. Louis fans are in following their team qualifying for the finals after such a long absence.
There will be huge demand and high prices for tickets to catch the games in person, which prompts the question: how can you get the cheapest Stanley Cup Finals tickets?
When Do Stanley Cup Finals tickets Go On Sale?
There’s still some time to try and secure your Stanley Cup Finals tickets before they all end up on the secondary market that will likely include prices well above face value. To be honest, most of these tickets will already be accounted for through team presales that are available exclusively to season ticket holders. Blues fans can find more information on how to purchase 2020 Full Season Tickets that allow for access to 2019 Stanley Cup Ticket here.
The best way to do this is to check the team’s website that should have the most up-to-date information on how to get tickets at face value, including on-sale times.
Why should I buy tickets for the Stanley Cup Finals on TickPick?
Purchasing your tickets through TickPick is the cheapest option for major events like the Stanley Cup Finals, where prices are as high as they’ll be for an NHL game all year due to incredible demand – particularly for Blues home games at Enterprise Center, where there fans haven’t had an opportunity to watch a Cup game in person in 49 years.
It’s cheaper-to-significantly cheaper to secure tickets through TickPick over competitors like StubHub simply because of TickPick’s no fee pricing structure that saves a buyer anywhere from 10-20% per ticket that other sites charge for service fees.
Take a look at the example below of a ticket listing for 3 seats in Row E of Section 102 for Home Game 1 in St. Louis.
You’ll see that they’re initially showing at $1,485 per ticket. A (relatively) good deal for a seat for this game, right? You’d think so, until you get to the checkout page where they tack on their service fees, or if you simply click on the filter that allows a user to see the actual price a buyer would be paying per ticket when fees are included. Notice what happens when the filter is applied that allows users to see what the price they’d really pay would look like.
StubHub’s Price at Checkout With Their Fees Added (as of 5/22)
The price jumps from $1,485 per ticket all the way to $1,966, which amounts to an incredibly-high service fee that would cost a buyer an extra $481 PER TICKET, just in fees alone.
Now compare that with the checkout page below for the exact same tickets on TickPick that are displaying for $1,679 per ticket from start to finish. While prices may initially appear higher on TickPick, they will ultimately be much cheaper at checkout as there’s never any service fees tacked on.
TickPick’s Listed Price & Price at Checkout (as of 5/22)
Purchasing a pair of tickets here on TickPick at $5,037 total saves a buyer a whopping $861 over purchasing that same 3-pack on StubHub for $5,898 total. These are some of the best seats in the house for these games, so if you’re looking to sit down low near the glass, why pay over $800 for the exact same seats when you can spend that money on lodging and airfare to see your team play?
