Here’s what people are saying about the mind-blowing Toronto Raptors ticket prices – .

Tickets to a Toronto Raptors game went on sale Friday and some fans are complaining about the shockingly high prices.

As of Friday afternoon, upper bowl standing tickets for the team’s opener against the Washington Wizards on October 20 start at $ 48, plus fees and taxes. Some resale tickets on Ticketmaster for seats in the lower bowl cost over $ 1,200 each.

Tickets for high-profile games later in the season are even more expensive.

If fans want to see All-Star and former Raptor Kyle Lowry play in Toronto for the first time since his trade in August, they can expect to shell out more than a few hundred dollars. Top Bowl seats in the 300s for the Miami Heat game on Feb.3 are selling for at least $ 400 on Ticketmaster.

Only individual seats not intended for resale remain for the Miami Heat game. The price to pay ? Just over $ 1000 for this view of section 109.

That sounds like a good deal considering that some lower bowl resale tickets for the same game cost over $ 2,200 each including fees and taxes.

If you were hoping to catch the Los Angeles Lakers in March 2022, the game is almost sold out. Resale tickets for seats in the upper bowl of Section 321 are listed for $ 930.

The Scotiabank Arena has a capacity of 20,587 seats.

Fans took to Twitter on Friday to express their dismay at the high ticket prices. Here’s what some had to say.

While the land border with the United States is set to reopen for full vaccination on November 8, some fans say they can drive south to watch the Raptors play there because home game tickets are too expensive.

Some tickets to the Raptors New Years Eve game against the Los Angeles Clippers cost nearly $ 1,500, although former Raptor Kawhi Leonard may not appear due to ACL surgery in July.

Other supporters fear that the exorbitant ticket prices will exclude “real” supporters and lead to sleepy crowds at the Scotiabank Arena.

Another fan doesn’t think the high ticket prices will deter people from buying tickets. According to Ticketmaster, most tickets for the Raptors’ 41 home games this season have already been sold.

If you’re curious about prices south of the border, tickets for a seat in Section 100 for a January home game at FTX Arena in Florida against the Miami Heat are around US $ 61.
