Tickets for the Golden Knights’ seven March home games will go on sale for season-ticket holders beginning at 9 a.m. Wednesday, the team announced.
Todd Pollock, the team’s vice president of ticketing and suites, said Tuesday that a small number of tickets also will be set aside for the public and can be purchased at 10 a.m. Thursday. Cost for those tickets starts at $135.
The Knights host Minnesota on Monday and again March 3 at T-Mobile Arena.
State officials approved the Knights to have 15 percent capacity for home games at T-Mobile Arena, and the team will sell 2,200 seats in the lower bowl, mezzanine and upper bowl. The upper bowl west side will remain empty. Approximately 375 additional seats will be dedicated for use across 44 suites.
Pollock was hopeful the Knights would be approved for more fans at T-Mobile Arena after March.
“It’ll be 363 long days since we were able to host fans in the building, and I know our players and the entire organization welcomes them with open arms, albeit from a distance,” Pollock said. “But we’re certainly looking forward to having the best fans in the NHL back in the building.”
Wednesday’s presale is for season-ticket holders, partial season-ticket holders, Can’t Wait List members and team sponsors. Along with the public sale Thursday, single-game suite tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. Friday.
Season-ticket holders who are part of the Knights Vow program will get savings up to 59 percent on single-game seats. Those who didn’t sign up for the Knights Vow will see up to a 45 percent discount.
All fans will be limited to purchasing one seating pod for one home game during March. A pod is a set of two, four or six tickets that cannot be split.
Anyone interested in purchasing tickets to an additional game must go through the public sale Thursday.
“We acknowledge and understand that it’s an imperfect situation that we’re in,” Pollock said. “We think this is the most equitable way to get it out to as many of our fans as possible. But we realize that the numbers don’t necessarily add up to accommodate everyone.”
Several safety protocols also will be in place.
Fans will be limited to section groups within the arena and will be required to go through a symptom check via the CLEAR app on game day. Masks are required when not actively eating or drinking.
There will be suggested arrival times assigned, and fans will be dismissed by section to exit the arena at the conclusion of each game. Tickets remain fully digital, and there will be no will call or game-day sales at the box office.
No bags will be permitted in the arena, including purses and clutches.
Parking is complimentary with locations at New York-New York, Park MGM, MGM Grand and Excalibur.
Also, plans for Silver Knights tickets have not been finalized. Pollock said the organization is optimistic the American Hockey League team will host fans at Orleans Arena this season.
