Edmonton Oilers watch party tickets at Rogers Place jump to $20

Tickets to the Edmonton Oilers’ playoff watch parties inside Rogers Place for road games will cost hockey fans more for the Stanley Cup Final.

In a news release Tuesday morning, the Oilers Entertainment Group (OEG) said tickets for the watch parties for Games 1 and 2 go on sale at noon and will cost $20 each. That’s four times the $5 ticket cost for the first three rounds of the NHL playoffs.

The OEG did not give a reason for the jump in price for watch party tickets.

The organization said net ticket proceeds go to the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation.
