Maple Leafs fans are going to have to dig a little deeper to see their team in action at the Air Canada Centre next season.
Following the lead of other pro sports teams, including the Raptors and Blue Jays, the NHL club is bringing in a dynamic pricing plan that will charge more depending on the opponent and the day of the game, according to reports.
Tickets to see popular opponents will cost more.
The prices will be divided into five categories: super premium, premium plus, premium, regular and preseason, the Toronto Star reported.
A seat in the “green” price point could range from $90 (regular) to $125 (super premium), depending on the opponent, the newspaper reported.
Earlier this year, a study by Team Marketing Report found that Leafs tickets are the most expensive in the NHL with an average price of nearly $125 per seat.
After training camp, the Leafs open the preseason against the Philadelphia Flyers in London, Ont., on Sept. 15. Their first preseason home game is the following night against the Flyers.
After the Leafs kick off the regular season with two games on the road, they play their first home game Oct. 5 against the Ottawa Senators.
