OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 20, 2008) - The host organizing committee for the 2009 IIHF World Junior Championship announced today the official launch of the World Junior Championship Ticket Marketplace, which offers purchasers of the 31- and 17-game gold, silver and bronze ticket packages an opportunity to resell tickets for games which they cannot attend. The ticket marketplace is the only authorized resale site for 2009 World Junior Championship tickets.

The ticket marketplace, which can be found at www.capitaltickets.ca/wjcticketmarketplace, also presents an opportunity for any fan to purchase great tickets that otherwise would not be available to the general public.

As part of the launch of the ticket marketplace, the host organizing committee also announced individual game gate pricing for the championship. Tickets will be available to purchase through the marketplace, starting as low as $7.50 plus applicable charges. For a complete listing of gate prices for all games, fans are encouraged to visit the ticket marketplace website.

On Saturday, Dec. 6, there will be a general release of remaining tickets for the championship. Any remaining tickets for Team Canada games and playoff games will be available as part of Team 1200 mini-packages.

There are still limited quantities of Metro Family Zone two-game ticket packages available to fans. Each package includes a ticket to a Team Canada, quarter-final or semi-final game, along with a ticket to another game at SBP Arena. Metro Family Zone packages are $90 plus applicable charges and can be purchased at www.capitaltickets.ca.
