The NHL's Heritage Classic is a highly anticipated event that takes place every few years. Heritage Classic tickets for the March 2 game that will take place at BC Place in Vancouver, British Columbia are in high demand, and they are now readily available.
The late-season matchup will feature the Ottawa Senators and hometown Vancouver Canucks. Members of each squad have expressed excitement about playing a game that is one of Canada's biggest showcases of hockey in any given calendar year. Purchasing NHL Heritage Classic tickets will ensure that you have a seat at a historic event that will be talked about for many years to come.
Fans have not been able to purchase tickets for the Heritage Classic since it was last staged in 2011 in Calgary before a sold-out audience who witnessed the Calgary Flames down the Montréal Canadiens 4 – 0 at McMahon Stadium in Alberta. The upcoming installment will represent the third version of the event. The fourth is scheduled for 2016 in Winnipeg.
The event is being hosted at the grandiose BC Place, a lovely waterfront establishment that was initially opened in the early 1980s and renovated just a few years ago. It has a very unique architectural structure that qualifies as both an indoor and outdoor stadium. A large and nearly oval-shaped opening at the top of the roof allows in sunlight and gives the stadium an outdoor feel.
In the wake of its recent renovation and the elimination of a roof that was filled with air much like a gigantic pool toy, BC Place has been called one of the most impressive in all of North America by a few reputable sources. It is also home to the second largest high-definition screen in the world next to the setup that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had built for AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Now is the time to take a look at the Heritage Classic Schedule if you're interested in purchasing Heritage Classic tickets. Waiting around and procrastinating could end up in you missing out on the action, and everyone who attends this event will have proof that they are hard-core NHL fans, as well as a few good stories to tell at the next gathering of friends or family.
This year's event is named in honor of Miles "Tim" Horton, a gritty defenseman who played on several teams but mostly the Toronto Maple Leafs from the late 1940s through the mid-1970s. He passed away at the age of 44 while still playing professional hockey, and he remains in the hearts and minds of many Toronto fans who go back at least a handful of decades.
