The Toronto Maple Leafs are one of the most expensive sports tickets around.

The fact they’ll do it for each year of the team’s new five-year partnership with Ford may be worth celebrating. The specifics, as seen on the club’s website, state that 200 tickets will be available for every home game in 2014-15 – a grand total of 9,000 seats. The free tickets will be in the brand new Ford Fan Deck and can be won by engaging through social media and by competing in both online and in-person challenges.
