Rogers Arena Away Game Scalpers Profiting from Charity?

These days demand is so high for all things Canucks that many people are trying to make a buck. Nothing wrong with that, I have no problem with scalpers trying to make a buck. If someone wants to pay $700/ticket for a seat up at the top of Rogers Arena let them. However, selling away game tickets, in which proceeds go to charity just doesn’t seem right unless the profits are then going to charity. However, I doubt that is the case.

Here is an ad that was shared on twitter. I’m sure there are more out there. Don’t know who would pay that much to watch a game on a big screen!

Ad 1:

Wednesday June 8th, 2011 Game 4!! BEST SEATS AVAILABLE!!

Section 308, Row 6, Seat 5-8!!: $75each… OR BEST OFFER!! No Lowballers!!

Monday June 13th, 2011 Game 6!! AMAZING SEATS!!
Section 307, Row 4, Seat 105-108!!: $100each… OR BEST OFFER!! No Lowballers!! *Refund Available If Game Not Needed*
Section 309, Row 7, Seat 105-108!!: $100each… OR BEST OFFER!! No Lowballers!! *Refund Available If Game Not Needed*


Then there is this ad that attempts to counter the away game ticket sellers.

Canucks Fans DO not buy these tickets off these scalpers and let them make money off an event where all the ticket sales go to Canucks Place!!

Some are asking for $50 a ticket to sit lower bowl, are they forgetting the game is played on the canucks jumbotron

Unless you are planning to donate profits to another Charity or canucks place, May all those selling for profit get hit by a bus

Good day!

Now one can argue the seller has already paid his/her share to charity but still something about this just isn’t right. However, I’m sure there are some crazy fans out there that just might buy these tickets.
