Kings’ ticket prices for season opener cause a bit of sticker shock
By Lisa Dillman | LA Times
Popularity has its price.
When Kings fans began to look at ticket prices for Saturday’s season opener against Chicago, some registered their discontent via email and/or Twitter. Prices were listed by the team starting in the neighborhood of $155. But the game is sold out, which means the secondary market is surging.
At StubHub, for instance, a quick review showed a range from $199 (up high in Section 320) to one ticket down by the glass for nearly $1,500. The Kings recognize the emotions of the issue.
“Pricing is something we never take lightly, but in most cases I’ll tell fans there’s lots of options out there when it comes to purchasing Kings tickets,” said Kelly Cheeseman, the Kings’ chief operating officer.
