The average ticket price is the highest for any Avalanche playoff home game this postseason as well as being the first to reach an average of over $1,000. For the record, the average price for Game 1 was $859, with Game 2 having an average of $943.
Currently, Game 5’s $1,375 average price is the highest for any held at Ball Arena since 2010, according to Vivid Seats. The other two Stanley Cup Final home games are the second and third highest overall. For comparison, Adele’s concert in July 2016 had an average ticket of $468 on the resale market.
The average price for Game 5 tickets in Denver is higher than the prices for some recent Stanley Cup Final home games. For the record, the ticket for the 2021 Game 5, in which the Lightning won against the Montreal Canadiens, was $1,022.
Game 7 of 2019 between the Boston Bruins and the St. Louise Blues had an average ticket price of $1,316.

Lastly, the 2014 Game 5, in which the Lightning won over the New York Rangers, had an average price of $895.
StubHub also reported that this year’s Stanley Cup Final has an average ticket price of $1,629, with the cheapest being $1,410. The number of sales has increased by 60 percent for the past 24 hours since the Avalanche won Game 4 in Tampa. Currently, on StubHub, the most expensive ticket is listed at $27,320 to sit on Row 6 of Section 148.
“The demand for Stanley Cup Finals in Denver has considerably outpaced Tampa in this series. Fan excitement keeps rising with the Avalanche with just one win away from claiming the Stanley Cup,” said StubHub spokesman Michael Silveira.
The Lightning is currently leading the series 3-1. Lightning coach Jon Cooper said winning the Stanley Cup for the third straight year would be “unthinkable”.
“Growing up in Canada, you always dream about having your name on the Stanley Cup,” Cooper. “To get there the first time, it was a dream come true. To get there a second time, the next year, and to go a third time is unthinkable.”
“Having won back-to-back Stanley Cups is surreal,” Lightning captain Steven Stamkos said. “To get here for a third time is crazy. During the season it’s tough to really look back and appreciate this type of run.”
As the Lightning is prepared to do their best to defend the title, the Avalance will similarly give it all.
“It’s going to be a fun series because to be the best you’ve got to beat the best,” Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog said. “And I don’t think they’ve seen anybody like us and we haven’t seen anybody like them.”
