The NHL hockey season has just begun and most hockey fans know exactly where the best seats to watch a hockey game are but for many fans attending an NHL hockey game for the first time there are several factors to consider when choosing your seats.
The first is how much you want to spend on hockey tickets alone because you should factor in parking and concessions if your budget is limited. The cheapest seats are the furthest from the ice and closer to the end opposite where the team shoots twice. Center ice seats get more expensive as you move down to the lower level closer to the glass. And with each team and opponent the ticket prices can vary widely.
Fans have to look through the clear plexiglass down in the first few rows but they are also closer to the action and the all too common fights. Some of the best seats according to fans are down at the end where the home team shoots twice. It’s like in football where the fans go crazier at the scoring end of the field.
For extra comfort and amenities fans can choose from club seating at most hockey venues. With club seating you often have access to a separate club area for shorter concession and bathroom lines as well as service to your seat so you don’t have to get up in the middle of the action to score a drink or grab some food.
