Not sure if this is allowed but I did not know where to post.

The all-event tickets are already on sale and I just got my ticket. I was wondering if anyone here is familiar with the Motorpoint Arena. My ticket is in the first row right behind the judges section 102 row E. Do they have good view?

Sheffield is quite a spectator friendly venue - I dont think I have ever had a bad seat. I'm sure you will be very happy with your choice.

Are they cheap? I haven't been to any ISU champs before so didn't know how to react to them. In debate as to whether to get all event ticket or not, I doubt I will go to qualifying rounds so wouldn't make much difference on price ...

Generally when is it advisable to buy your ticket by?

Yes, they're very cheap. Ticket prices can vary quite a bit depending on the host country, but on average they tend to be much higher then these, probably around five times as much. I certainly expected them to be higher in the UK, but hopefully they can fill the arena with these prices.

So far only all event tickets seem to be available which are restricted to certain sectors, individual tickets will go on sale early June when you'll have more choice in terms of seating.

If you definitely know you are going, I wouldn't wait too long. While it's always possible to get tickets at a later date, your preferred seats may no longer be available.

Wow, for that cheap, I think I'm skipping nationals in San Jose and going to Euros next year!

I bought a ticket and I don't even have a passport. (from the US) I figured if I bought one maybe I'll force myself to go.

Five times as much would make the best all-event tickets 800 GBP, or 900 euros. The Euros are never so expensive. Last year at Bern the best all-event tickets costed the equivalent of 500 euros and Switzerland is probably as expensive as it gets.

The catch is that you'd have to go to Sheffield. :P

The closest airport to Sheffield is Manchester, right?

Manchester is definitely the biggest airport, but there is also the smaller http://www.robinhoodairport.com/ which is much closer.

Here's a list of UK airports http://www.visitbritain.com/en/Transport/Getting-to-Britain/Flight-and-airport-information.htm

Actually you're right, I probably went a bit overboard here. Individual ticket prices of 16-31 for the final days and especially 21/31 for the gala still seem very cheap. I expected them to be more in line with Bern.
