The cheapest Rangers tickets start at $30 and they can cost up to several thousand dollars (box seats). However, most tickets range between $70 and $200. It all depends on where your seat is located.

Where are the best seats?

The best seats are on the long sides of the ice rink, seats in sections 115 to 119 as well as 105 to 109. In these seats, you will be close to the action and can recognize players and see the puck. Tickets in these sections run approx. $150 to $250.

Tickets with the best cost/benefit ratio are those for seats in the 200’s – sections 222 to 226 as well as sections 209 to 213 on the opposite side. These seats provide you with excellent views. I personally do not care for the seats right behind the goals, but that is a matter of taste. One thing for sure: you’ll be part of the roaring crowd and the sensational atmosphere in the stadium can’t be beat!

Stadium

The location of the stadium in which the Rangers play is ideal: right in the center of beautiful Manhattan! Madison Square Garden is located between 7th and 8th Ave. and 31st to 33rd St. The arena can accommodate 18,200 screaming fans, which guarantees a rowdy evening!

Insider Knowledge:
Have you ever wondered how it is possible to have a basketball game in the afternoon and then a hockey game later that night in the same arena? During hockey season at Madison Square Garden, the ice rests underneath the basketball court (or stage if applicable), covered with a highly insulating material. Numerous pipes cool the floor of the 17,000 square meter ice rink. Metal oxide is used to get the ice to turn white, and the lines are painted by hand. The ice rink requires the unfathomable sum of 40,000 liters of water!

How do you get to the stadium?

Getting to Madison Square Garden is very easy – either walk or take subway lines logo subway line 1, logo subway line 2  & logo subway line 3 to Penn Station/34th. Madison Square Garden is located between 7th and 8th Ave. near 31st St. You should not have any difficulties finding your way to the arena – just follow the blue, white and red jerseys!

When should you arrive at the stadium?

I recommend getting to the stadium one hour before start of the game. This will help you avoid long wait lines at the ticket counters and entry gates and you can also take a closer look at the famed arena, Madison Square Garden.

New York Rangers History and Successes

The New York Rangers are one of only four teams that have been in the NHL since its inception – the 1926/1927 season. The team was founded in 1926 and immediately got off to a successful start. Within the first seven years (up to the 1932/33 season) the New York Rangers won the Stanley Cup three times and also won two division titles. But after these successes, the team faded into the background. Many times, the former champs were in last place in the league.  No big successes were achieved for many years: either the players were too young and inexperienced, or management had a falling out with the coaches. It took 54 years for the New York Rangers to win their next Stanley Cup – in the year 1994. This success was however also followed by a drought in titles.

In the last few years, however, the team has stabilized and finally recruited the right mix of experienced leaders and wild, young players. Since 2012, the New York Rangers have added a division title and a conference title to their successes. The Rangers are once again a staple team in the play-offs.

Fans & Atmosphere

The atmosphere during a New York Rangers game is incredible – loud, stirring, thrilling and every clever move is enthusiastically acknowledged.
