The Vancouver Canucks will be hosting a Road Game Viewing Party at Rogers Arena (formerly GM Place) for Stanley Cup Final away games on June 6, 8 and 13. Tickets for each game will go on sale via phone and internet only on Friday, June 3 at 12 noon. Tickets are $10 each, plus a handling fee. Each household will be eligible to purchase a maximum of six tickets per game.
Tickets are available online at www.ticketmaster.ca/canucks or via Ticketmaster at 855.523.6800. Tickets will be also available at the Rogers Arena Box Office and Ticketmaster Ticket Centres on Saturday, June 4, based on availability.
The family-friendly event will include face painting, cartoon drawings and other kid-centric activities. Doors open at 4 PM for the 5 PM puck drop as each game is broadcast from Boston's TD Garden, home of the Bruins. More information may be found at www.canucks.com/roadgames.
The Vancouver Canucks are asking fans to celebrate responsibly as the team continues through the playoffs: "Cheer loudly and wear Canucks colours, show respect for fellow fans, respect our neighbours and the property of others as you leave Rogers Arena and plan for a safe ride home."
Proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Canucks for Kids Fund. To read about free viewing areas in Vancouver for both home and away games during the Stanley Cup Final, click on my Seattle Travel Examiner site.
Rogers Arena (formerly GM Place) is the "hard roof" stadium located next to B.C. Place, seen here in January 2011. B.C. Place is currently under renovations for a new roof. Photo by Sue Frause.
$10.00 plus Ticketmaster "handling fee". Sure the $10.00 goes to charity but the handling fee into the greedy pockets of Ticketmaster. If you google Ticketmaster you will find a history of law suits for excessive fees. So the $10.00 is bogus.
Ticketmaster is an issue no matter if it's Canada or the USA. I hate paying their fees and try to avoid going through them. So I supposed if you live in Vancouver you could go to Rogers Arena on that Saturday and get tix, but I'd be surprised if there are any left. Seems like they'll sell out quite fast, esp. since each "household" can buy up to six tix. I'm down in the states so will happily watch it on CBC. But I will happen to be in Vancouver on June 10, when there's a home game, so it will be interesting to experience the vibe of the Stanley Cup up close! Go Canucks!
It does gonna be a great battle when these two great teams clash. I can’t wait to watch it. This is gonna be an exciting game.
Rogers Arena was formely GM Place. It's the "hard roof " stadium next to B.C. Place which is currently not in use during the contruction of a new roof. B.C. Place was where the Olympic Opening and closing ceremonies took place.
Oh right, GM Place. I always get BC Place and GM Place mixed up. Thanks for the clarification (and I'll make a correction). Go Canucks, no matter where they play!
I’m so excited to watch these finals series games. I hope I could see a good game to both teams. Good luck to both teams.
Does anyone know if they are serving alcohol at these events? Or is it supposed to be a family thing?
I'm pretty sure the free outdoor venues are family friendly, meaning no alcohol. Not so sure about Rogers Arena, since they serve beer, etc. during at home hockey games and other event.
