Re: Montreal selected to host Fed Cup Americas Zone Group I stage

They should start stealing players like Canada does

You have not seen the last of me
I'm breeding thorns
I'll follow your footsteps down below
I will trust all my instincts and bring it home.

Lol you'd wish :P (I would also, but I'd be more than happy if it's 10-15$/day). Well, if the competition is in February, they'd better hurry up. I guess the best way to know what's going on is to call @ admission and ask. I read there were only going to be from 500 to 1500 places since it's inside, maybe they think they can sell everything within a month or less, but that's just plain stupid ...

I'm hoping I'll be able to get tickets when I go there. I assume they won't sell out.

TICKETS ON SALE FOR FED CUP BY BNP PARIBAS
Americas Zone Group I event set to play at Uniprix Stadium in February

Tennis Canada announced Thursday that tickets are now on sale for the upcoming Fed Cup by BNP Paribas tie which will be held in Montreal in February. Uniprix Stadium will host the Americas Zone Group I Fed Cup presented by BNP Paribas competition February 4-7, 2009. The tournament will feature seven American nations that will battle it out for a single spot in the World Group II qualifying round next April. The Bahamas, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Paraguay, Puerto Rico and Venezuela will all be talking part. This event will mark the first time that Fed Cup matches are held at Uniprix Stadium and only the second time that they are presented in Montreal. In 2004, Canada faced Switzerland in Dorval, Quebec.

PRICES (taxes and service charges included):

− Box (4 seats) : $1,500 (note : the price indicated includes 4 invitations for a cocktail with the entire Canadian Team and a P-1 parking pass for the 2009 Rogers Cup)
− Series Ticket : $50 (valid for 4 days)
− Regular Session Ticket : $20 (valid for one day)
− Session Ticket (12 and under) : FREE from Wednesday to Friday / $5 for Saturday’s Final

Tickets can be purchased by phone at 514-273-1515, ext.11 (toll free: 1-866-338-2685,ext.11) or via the web at www.admission.com

The seven participating nations will be divided into two groups and a round robin will determine the winners of each group. On Saturday, February 7 the two finalists will then face each other in the final to determine which country will have a spot in the World Group II qualifying round.
In 2008, Canada was not able to come out on top in the Americas Zone Group I, losing 2-1 to Colombia in the round robin. But Canada did manage to finish third in the competition, which also included Brazil, Mexico, Paraguay, Puerto Rico and Uruguay. With such a successful run, Canada was sure to remain in Group I of the Americas Zone in 2009.

Temporary stands for 600 spectators will be set up in Uniprix Stadium for the matches. The names of the players who will make up the Canadian team will be announced next week. The event will be web cast live on www.tenniscanada.com.

Canada quite favorited this year. I don't see us losing, especially on fast hardcourts.
