St Louis Blues to hold Stanley Cup Finals watch party at Busch Stadium

The St Louis Blues are holding a watch party Wednesday night at the 46,000-capacity Busch Stadium, home of Major League Baseball’s St. Louis Cardinals, for the decisive Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Boston Bruins.

The move came after tickets for the NHL team’s viewing party at their own 18,400-seat Enterprise Center sold out in just 31 minutes on Monday.

Proceeds from sales of tickets, which cost $20 each, will go to charity. Fans are allowed four tickets per transaction.

The Blues, who were founded in 1967, are the oldest active NHL team never to have won the Stanley Cup. They previously reached the finals in 1968, 1969 and 1970.

Meanwhile, the Boston Red Sox have moved up the start time of their home game against the Texas Rangers on Wednesday “as a courtesy to [Bruins] fans who want to watch Game 7”.

The game at Fenway Park, which was scheduled to start at 7.10pm ET, will now begin at 4.05pm. Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals begins at 8pm.
