Cost Of Fandom: New York Rangers Game 7 Ticket Prices Soar!

If you think that the economy is not quite as strong as it could be or should be you wouldn’t know it from the average price of a Rangers-Capitals Game 7 ticket!

Tomorrow night Madison Square Garden in New York City will be hosting Game 7 of the New York Rangers-Washington Capitals series after the Rangers fought back from a staggering 3-1 series deficit to force the deciding game.

But, if you scan the arena below the nosebleed seats when the puck is dropped, you will likely see an even mix of the true rabid Rangers fans sitting side-by-side with the corporate suit and tie-set who are there as much for a Game 7 experience as for true fandom (Note: Of course not all of the suit and tie-set fit into the latter category).

Not that there’s anything wrong with that but it’s certainly what the soaring ticket prices suggest, in addition to providing some anecdotal evidence that the state of the economy in New York City, at least at the high end, is all well and good.

Courtesy of the or should be, ‘The Rangers-Capitals second-round playoff series has seen ticket prices soar in anticipation of Wednesday’s Game 7 at the Garden, according to data provided by Ticket IQ.

The average price of a ticket as of Monday afternoon was $757.71, with the get-in price of $421. The most expensive ticket listed was rink-side for $9,200-plus.

In comparison, Game 7 at the Garden of the Rangers-Capitals series from 2012 had an average ticket price of $658.82, with a get-in of $296.

And, from my living room couch-side seats, ‘Let’s Go Rangers!’
