But ticket sales in PyeongChang have been slower than they have been in past Olympics, particularly Salt Lake City or Vancouver, which means there are still tickets available for most men's and wom- en's hockey games, including the medal-round games. A quick search on shows that prices for the women's preliminary round games start at $18.83 and go up to $56.50. Men's preliminary round games run from $56.50 to $141. If you're determined to watch the men's or women's gold-medal game, you better have deep pockets. Tickets for the women's title game start at $141 and go up to $329.50. On the men's side, gold-medal tickets run from $282 to $847. For those closer to home,, the official ticket site of the 2018 Olympics, has ticket and transportation packages available. Another option for last minute spectators who just happen to be passing through South Korea is the secondary marketplace. However, tickets for medal-round games can go higher than three-times the original ticket price. At those prices, the best seat might just be in the comfort of your own living room.
