StubHub has all the Pinacle Club seats, you can't buy then off of TicketMaster. But for $4,500 a seat, you can get them from StubHub!

With approx. 33,000 seats which includes the suites and loges (no prices listed for those but pretty much guaranteed over $300 per seat):

19,000 will be $330 or higher
23,000 will be $260 or higher
25,000 will be $240 or higher

There are approx.:

3500 for $190
3500 for $170
1000 for $75

The average ticket price is probably closer to $250 or $275.  Grey Cup-like prices for an exhibition game.

I'm not surprised that the cheapest seats are gone. I sit in section 202 which is the next highest price for this game and IMO these are the best seats. The price for me is too much however. I'll watch it on TSN.

There are still probably 30,000 plus tickets available right now. Where do you sit? You can't tell me that you can't find a similar or even better seat right now. LITERALLY EVERY SEAT IS AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW

My "seats" are right near Donny... row 3 sec 108...  not my seat yet, maybe next year, but I'm not spending $300+ for an NFL game...

Have to wonder what percentage of the teams will frequent one of our local dispensaries... or do they still test for that randomly?  Would make for an interesting game...

The only positive I can see coming from this game will be that a lot of NFL fringe players will get a very favourable taste of CFL, seeing our facilities and our fans...

The sellers haven't bought any tickets there yet. If someone actually pays the $4500, then the seller goes out and finds a ticket, and makes a profit on the difference. Standard scalpers game.

These seats are not available from Ticket Master. (So essentially Ticket Master is only listing those seats on Stub Hub, as they are the same company).

I understand that. A seller is preemptively listing them , without holding a ticket, hoping some rube will pay $4500. If that happens, the seller then goes out and finds a ticket. Or waits til last minuteto find a ticket if they think prices will plummet. Every big event works this way.

Pretty sure stubhub requires the tickets to be in hand already...

Maybe the pinnacle seats have a seat license...  

"My" seats are sold, not sure if my buddy's partner already bought them...

I think that seller is Ticket Master! Since they have not listed those seats at all.

Have a cousin who advertises at games.  They have first crack at tickets and he was able to purchase up to 8 Tickets.

I wonder is Sask saw the ticket prices and thought, "Forget it." Even if we are making a profit it will be bad publicity if this is not a wild success."

There's also $4500 tickets on stubhub in the endzone, and other raandom sections. Some sleazy ticket broker/ticket broker software has preemptively listed tickets they  don't hold, for a default price of $4500. Ticket master is not invloved in the indicidua l listings. Those prices are just a placeholder likely software setup when the event was officially listed. Don't look to much into it.
