Boston2014, do you know if Ticketmaster will have the interactive seating map available for the Skating Spectacular tickets where we can select our exact seats?
That is not exactly accurate, but an official notice will be going out soon to everyone subscribed to our email notification list, as well as posted on our website, Facebook, and Twitter.
I'm also hoping for pricing information ahead of time, specifically for the Skating Spectacular. It would be nice to know before Friday what I can budget for. (I just booked my flights because they were cheap, forgetting there might be more tickets to buy ASAP.) Oh well - Boston here we come!
I just got my email that tickets are going on sale Friday 11am:
"Single session tickets for the 2014 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships will go on sale Friday September 27, at 11am [EDT] at ticketmaster.com, the TD Garden box office and all Ticketmaster locations. This will also be your first opportunity to purchase tickets for the Smucker's Skating Spectacular.
For more information on the 2014 U.S. Championships, including the Smucker's Skating Spectacular, schedules and a direct link to Ticketmaster, please visit boston2014.com. "
- BCEC practices begin on Saturday 1/4 for all novice events
- TD Garden practices begin Wednesday 1/8 for TD Garden events
- Some practice sessions - including senior practices - will be held at The Skating Club of Boston
We realize the last item is a change from our original intention to host all senior events, including practices, at the TD Garden. However, when we originally sketched out the event some 18 month ago, we did no have the benefit of any prior history of hosting a consolidated championships that included the juvenile and intermediate levels (previously hosted separately as "Junior Nationals"). As the referee has fleshed out the schedule, he found that we would not be able to provide participating skaters with their required practice time in their competition venue and still host all senior practices within the TD Garden, so we have had to expand to a third venue for certain practice sessions, our club.
The good news is that with all the "Big Dig" work now completed, it's only 15 minutes from the Seaport district to our Club, so the rink will be very accessible for those of you who want to make the trek out to see those practices. And some practices will of course be held at TD Garden. We don't have the final split yet, but since the competition venue for senior events is TD Garden, all senior competitors will have at least one practice session for each segment of the competition at the TD Garden.
Hope this is helpful.
Thanks for all the information! I assume the spectator shuttle will be an option for us to get to SCOB?
Will all senior event warm-ups (the 20-min ones) be at TD Garden? The sched looks a little tight on Thurs and Fri - esp for the SD warm-ups.
It sounds like more than just the senior level events will have practices at SCOB? What about the Juv and Int events? (sched looks pretty packed each day at BCEC)
Thanks to the others for some pricing info. After talking with Susan today I've decided to get an all-event package.
For those interested in the bus pass, Susan said an email will go out later this year after details are finalized.
I really debated on the purchase of an all event for this but looking at the pricing info she gave it might not have been a bad deal even knowing I can't do a lot of the early in the week events...
What competition schedule change did they make very recently? I've been away and out of the loop.
Thanks for posting the info.
Some All Event tickets are still available through the LOC, so you can save on the Ticketmaster fees. The tickets are transferrable if you can't make all the events and I know in the past, Sylvia has tried to coordinate "donated" tickets for the younger competitors families.
Also, we have now posted a PDF of individual ticket prices on our website. The link is on our Tickets page, which also has information about all-event tickets. As pointed out above, if you purchase an all-event ticket through the LOC, you will pay only a single shipping and handling fee of $25 for the entire order and will not be subject to any Ticketmaster fees.
Is anyone besides me having trouble ordering tickets on-line? The individual events are on the ticketmaster page, but the "find tickets" button appears to be disabled. Getting through on the phone is impossible.
