Supplementary notes
* Average ticket price represents a weighted average of season ticket prices for general seating categories. This is determined by factoring the full season ticket for each category as a percentage of the total number of seats in each venue. This takes into account variable pricing. Premium seating (tickets that come with at least one added amenity or is classified by team as premium) are not included in the survey to calculate average ticket price. Average Premium Ticket prices are listed separately. Luxury suites are also excluded. Season ticket pricing is used for any team that offers some or all tickets at lower prices for customers who buy season seats. When a seat category is not offered as a season ticket, we use the weighted average.

** Prices for Toronto tickets are converted to US Dollars using Bank of Canada monthly average exchange rates for the first three months of each year.
