Ticket prices are soaring like never before to see the Toronto Raptors.
With one person already reportedly paying over $76,000 CAD for a pair of courtside seats to the NBA Finals, basketball fans are willing to pay a king’s ransom for tickets.
Game 1 of the Raptors’ series against the Golden State Warriors — the first NBA Finals game ever to be played in Canada — is completely sold out, but there are lots of tickets available on the resale market.
- Police warn public about fraudulent Raptors tickets ahead of NBA Finals
- Someone paid over $76K for Raptors Game 1 NBA Finals tickets

The cheapest ticket currently available on StubHub for Thursday’s game at Scotiabank Arena is $1,169 CAD (including fees), and that doesn’t even get you a seat. That’s for standing room behind the last row of the arena. The cheapest available seat currently listed is $1,239 CAD.
The most cost-effective option through Ticketmaster’s verified resale is $1,140 CAD (including fees) for standing room, or $1,152 CAD for the last row of the building.
Those prices are well above the already high prices fans were paying for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, which went for north of $600 on the resale market.
Current ticket prices for Games 2, 5, and 7 are even higher. The cheapest ticket for a potential Game 7 is listed at $2,170.
If you do decide to purchase tickets on the secondary market, beware of scams, police warn. Also, note that prices on most ticket resellers are listed in US dollars and without fees.
