For the past year, Washington Capitals season ticket reps have been pushing guaranteed Winter Classic tickets as a main selling point of full- and partial-season plans. Last night, the team has released more information on how exactly that’s going to work.
Plan holders have been offered assigned seats, which they can take or leave. They are not able to pick their own location as has been done in previous Winter Classics. Prices range from $79 to $349 per ticket, plus $19 in fees ($9 for a service and administrative fee and $10 shipping and handling).
Here is the seating chart:
Since sight-lines aren’t optimal when you put a hockey rink in a baseball stadium, the most expensive seats are actually in the upper decks.
The Caps say the seats were assigned based on seniority and how expensive the holder’s Verizon Center seats are. Unless you’re a lobbyist, that probably means you’re going to be sitting in the lower bowl. Sorry, Brouwer Rangers. If you’re not a plan-holder, you’re out of luck, at least if you’re buying directly from them.
Other interesting notes:
Let us know where your seats end up.
