Chicago Blackhawks: Buying Single-Game Tickets

By Sean Fitzgerald

Amid the investigation surrounding Patrick Kane , there is something good on the horizon. Chicago Blackhawks single-game tickets go on sale today at 10 a.m. With the Blackhawks still immensely popular, buying single-game tickets has become increasingly difficult.

If you want to avoid the secondary ticket market, you need to purchase your tickets today. So I have come up with a strategy to buy single-game tickets. This strategy is not fool-proof, but it might help people snag some single-game tickets.

Here is my strategy for buying single-game tickets:

1. Be on Ticketmaster before 10 a.m.: The tickets go on sale at this time. Many people who want tickets are going to log on to the site right at 10. But it’s helpful to get on the site early. If you do not have a Ticketmaster account, you should set up one before hand. Get all your credit card information into Ticketmaster ahead of time. Every second you waste on Ticketmaster might cost you your tickets.

2. Pick your games in advance: People need to have their target games mapped out. I target weekday games because most people will target weekend games. Weekend games sell out before anything else.

3. Pick certain opponents: I am targeting the New Jersey Devils game on Nov. 12 and an Edmonton game on Dec. 15. The reason why I am picking the Devils and Oilers is because they are not the Blackhawks’ rivals. Games against rivals are going to sell out more quickly than games against other teams. I will stay away from games against the Blues and Red Wings. I am not going to waste my time with games that I will not get tickets to. I know ahead of time that I want to attend two games this season, so that is my strategy.

4. Sign up for printing online: I get my tickets online and print them at home because it is easier. It saves time, and you do not have to stop by will-call to pick them up. Also, if you need to sell your tickets, they are saved on the Ticketmaster app and you can send them to someone else via email. You would not have to meet someone under a viaduct in the middle of the night.

That is my strategy for buying single-game tickets. I know, by using it, that I will be seeing Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook live and in person. I know this strategy is simple and that it works.

I wish everyone the best of luck in buying their single-game tickets today!
