Scott adds that the Flyers sent out this pricing information to full-season ticket holders last week and it’s expected that very few (if any) tickets will be available to the general public.
...as Scott says, unless you're a Flyers season ticket holder these prices probably won't be of any relevance to you, but at least you'll know how much you're being ripped off when you try and buy Winter Classic tickets on eBay.

Capacity is only around 43,000 at Citizens Bank Ballpark so not sure there's enough tickets for all Rangers season ticket holders. Rangers may have to do lottery with them.
Here's a link to a Flyers blog my friend sent me today (I'm a Rangers fan in Philly country)
"Winter Classic Tickets: Why you're probably not going to the game"
Was going to email it or tweet it you Kev but figured I would just drop the link in a message here.
@BrentG Thanks for the heads-up. Just posted. Giving you credit of course:
I spoke to my rep the other day and he said that the Rangers are going to give Season Ticket holders the first shot at tickets also. I just hope they give the Rangers some good seats. Wouldn't be surprised if they gave us all the shitty seats lol.
Think about it, each team has around 12-14k subscribers. You're allowed to buy as many seats as you have. so there will still be at least 15k seats for the public.
@CCCP Think about it, the lower you are the worse view you have. Probably one of the only events where sitting further away actually benefits you.
@KevinDeLury true but, the higher you sit, the smaller the rink gets! It freaking far from the sits as is! i still think that playing on a baseball field is dumb.
@ScottyHockey Would rather watch on my couch than the front row.
Exactly Kev - no reason to go if you are down near field level because you end up watching the game on the video boards.
@CCCP Agree on the baseball field. Has to be at football stadium. If you're too close you're basically starring at the back of the boards and can't see the puck.
