Here's How You Can Watch The Stanley Cup Final In The Quartier Des Spectacles For Free

The City of Montreal and Quartier des Spectacles are hosting free outdoor screenings of the next few games of the Stanley Cup Final in Montreal — including tonight's Game 3, which is sold out.

The site will host 4,335 game spectators, separated into three zones — Place des Festivals, Promenade des Artistes and Esplanade de la Place des Arts — with their own entrances and exits.

Booking Tickets  

While the event is free, you have to reserve online in advance and you'll be denied entry without a ticket. 

You can reserve seats on Ticketmaster 24 hours ahead of the game, with a maximum of four tickets per person. Tickets are only available digitally and printed tickets won't be accepted, so you'll have to show your ticket on your phone.

The whole site accommodates people with restricted mobility, but only Zone C has accessible bathrooms, reserved parking and private access from Rue Saint-Catherine O. 

You won't be able to join people in other zones and you must remain in your ticketed zone at all times, so make sure you book the same zone as your friends. 

Getting There

Here's how you can use public transportation to reach your zone:

  • Zone A can be reached via Place des Arts metro station, at the de Bleury exit. Once outside, go south on Rue de Bleury until you reach Rue Sainte-Catherine O.

  • Zone B can be accessed via the Saint-Laurent metro station. Once outside, go west on Boul. de Maisonneuve until you reach Rue Saint-Urbain.

  • Zone C can also be accessed via the Saint-Laurent metro station. Once outside, go west on Boul. de Maisonneuve until Rue Saint-Urbain, then go south to 1444, rue Saint-Urbain.

The surrounding streets will be closed to traffic, save for Rue Saint-Urbain, which grants entry to the Complexe Desjardins, Place des Arts and Indigo parking lots.

Four screens will broadcast the match. The screening site opens at 5 p.m. and the hockey game starts at 8 p.m.
