If you’ve ever wanted to own your own piece of the Coliseum, now is your chance.

Another round of seats from the old home of the Edmonton Oilers went on sale on Tuesday. Michener Allen is auctioning off the seats by the pair for $220 to $252. Fans can also buy single seats for about $157.

Buyers will only be able to buy one set of some of the seats that are of a limited quantity, the auction house said. More information can be found on the company’s website.

The latest auction, which runs until 5 p.m. on Nov. 30, comes after GovPlanet auctioned off the first round of Coliseum seats in May. A pair of seats went for $230 during that auction. About 5,000 pairs were up for grabs.

“I think a lot of Edmontonians want a piece of this history,” Lyall Brenneis, manager of the Exhibition Lands Transformation Project, said in a media release in May.

“Imagine the sheer number of events that have happened at the Coliseum over the years. Lots of laughs, smiles, oohs and ahs and probably some tears as well.”

The Coliseum — formerly named Northlands Coliseum, Rexall Place and Skyreach Centre, to name a few — permanently closed its doors on Jan. 1, 2018 after a unanimous decision by city council.

The Coliseum opened in 1974 for the Edmonton Oilers when the team was in the World Hockey Association.

The Oilers won five Stanley Cups in the arena during the 1980s and in 1990, before moving to the new Rogers Place arena in 2016.

Proceeds from the first seat sale will be used to offset costs associated with maintaining the Exhibition Lands site.
