Pre season Canucks


We're travelling over from Aust in late Sept/early Oct. My son plays ice hockey in Aust.

We noticed a pre season game in Vancouver v Edmonton. Should we purchase tickets now or wait until we come across.

Hi ausgp ~

Seasons tix are dealt with first until a certain cut off date. Then new seasons tix customers get a chance. Then single tix purchases will go on sale. I think there are plenty of seasons tix holders who don't really care about the pre-season games and are happy to resell their tix through the Canucks' official channels. "Ticketmaster ticket exchange" would be good to google later in the summer. And there is the "Canucks Ticket Exchange" on Facebook page for buying/selling/trading without fees and with little risk of fraud.

You could buy them before you come, but wait a while until they are available to the public before you do.

They would post their on-sale date, you may want to get tickets cause Im sure with two Canadian teams there would be a quick sell-out...

It's preseason there won't be a sell out. Even during the regular season even though every game is technically a sell out there are always seats available. Another option is Craiglist or scalpers selling tickets outside the stadium.

My inclination is to buy your tickets before you come - even if it is pre-season and possibly not a sell-out. Just one less stressor when you are coming so far. It won't be the best caliber hockey of the year, but it will be the best live hockey your son will have seen, and the stadium puts on a great show.

Get them now if you can. Note that pre-season means you will be watching many that may not make the squad
