On Tuesday morning, the Capitals released Stanley Cup Final tickets to season-ticket holders via a presale. The tickets were made available in a loyalty level system, with the longest tenured ticket holders having the first time slots.
The Stanley Cup Final tickets were essentially sold out after the first time slot, with only single tickets available for Saturday’s game showing up during noon. Around 1:30, an email was sent out to ticket holders saying the presale was officially sold out.
The email reads:
Due to overwhelming demand and additional inventory needs of the NHL, pre-sale tickets for the Stanley Cup Final are now sold out. You can continue to check the pre-sale at your time slot throughout the day for any released seats, but the pre-sale is currently sold out.
You can also can continue to check the pre-sale link throughout the remainder of this week. If the NHL releases any inventory, it will be made available via this same pre-sale link. No additional notices will be sent, so please continue checking the link.
We appreciate your patience and support during this incredible Caps playoff run to the 2018 Stanley Cup Final!
Membership Services Team
The Capitals Membership Services Team states that tickets may become released as the week goes on, but they will not hold any other presales with further announcements. If additional tickets do become available, they will be sold on Ticketmaster.
The tickets made available were for sale at more than double the price listed on season-ticket holders pre-printed tickets.
As of Wednesday at 2 PM, tickets on resale sites are listed as from $789 for Saturday and from $649 for Monday’s home games. Lower level tickets are listed for as expensive as $7,500 each while a single ticket in the 400’s can run you close to or over $1,000.
