Rocket in semis: 8,000 tickets sold in 25 minutes for match #3

The Rocket picked the right year to go a long way in the playoffs. With the Canadiens doing poorly and with life getting more and more back to normal after two years of the pandemic, for the Rocket to win like this feels good and that explains the wave.

The club on the ice is more than competitive and the local talent (plus a few players who have the potential to help the Canadian in the medium term) is clearly helping ticket sales.

After defeating Rochester in the third round (considering the to play in that the club did not have to participate), now the Rocket are in the semi-finals of the Calder Cup. They are currently the only club qualified for all four aces.

Jean-François Houle’s men, who are out until Monday, will face the winner of the duel between the Charlotte Checkers and the Springfield Thunderbirds. Springfield leads the series (3 of 5) 2-0.

That said, no matter which club wins, it will be a great customer who had a better record than the Rocket, ensuring that Laval residents start the series in the US and play games #3 (June 8) and # 4 (June 10) at home. If there is a #5 game, it will also be at Place Bell on June 11.

The tickets, therefore, have been put on sale by the Rocket since we already know that there will be games at the end of the orange line on June 8 and 10. You can buy your tickets here… and I recommend you do it quickly as they are selling like hot cakes. at a French bakery in Westmount.

Tickets went on sale at noon. And as we can see, for game #3 of the series, in about 10 minutes, no less than 6,000 tickets were sold. So the Rocket was starting to open the sections from above.

And in 25 minutes, 8,000 tickets were sold. 8000!

Remember that the capacity of Place Bell is approximately 10,000 seats. Therefore, we can say, without being too wrong, that in the fourth round there will be a full house… as in the previous rounds.

Keep in mind that some AHL arenas won’t have 8,000 viewers per game in the playoffs, which the Rocket accomplished (in 25 minutes) nearly two weeks in advance and without knowing the opponent. Yes, hockey for Quebecers is the next level.

Please note that Rocket does not intend to play at the Bell Center in order to accommodate more fans at games. The club will play at home the rest of the playoffs, says Anthony Marcotte.

It had been done during the pandemic… but it wasn’t because of the number of fans allowed at games. This was to avoid sanitizing two different arenas according to COVID-19 protocol standards.

A lot of
