good luck getting a ticket unless you are a seasons ticket holder.
For the last Winter Classic a lottery was held, as in past Winter Classics, for season ticket holders for both teams to have the chance to buy tickets. However, if you were selected, you had to purchase a three game package, including tickets for the Winter Classic itself, tickets for the alumni game and tickets for an AHL game that would be played on the outdoor rink.
As for the general public, their only shot at tickets was scalpers or websites such as Stubhub. The average ticket price on Stubhub for the Winter Classic was around $600.
The place holds 114,000!!!! Almost 3 times the capacity of both JLA and ACC combined! (JLA ~20k, ACC ~18k)
Not saying it's gonna be easy, but there is a much better chance for this one than previous Winter Classics IMO.
We'll see though, I just got a call this morning actually from the ticket rep for the Red Wings trying to get me to put in a deposit on the 13/14 season to ensure I reserve Winter Classic tickets.
