Tickets for Vegas Golden Knights home games during March will go on sale to the public on Thursday.
Fans who want to see the Golden Knights inside T-Mobile Arena for the first time in nearly a year will get their opportunity. Tickets will be on sale starting 10 a.m. Thursday, starting with Vegas’ upcoming home game against the Minnesota Wild on March 1.
Season ticket holders and Can’t Wait List members will have first priority on Wednesday.
“We like to, as always, allocate seats for our partial season ticket members, single-game buyers and group buyers,” said Todd Pollock, the Golden Knights’ vice president of ticketing and suites. “In terms of who’s going to have access, we did give our members the opportunity to retain their money on file for this season.”
Pollock said on a normal basis, roughly 80 percent of T-Mobile Arena is comprised of season ticket holders. The anticipation is there will be a limited number of tickets available to the public.
“We’re not going to have zero [tickets available] when people go on,” Pollock said. “There will be tickets. It’s just a function of how many have we actually sold through in the first set of presales to our members. Again, our goal is to do our best to take care of our members as much as we can.”
As of now, there are no plans for tickets beyond March. Pollock said they want to make next month a test run to ensure operations run smoothly.
Parking will be complimentary at New York-New York, Park MGM, MGM Grand, and Excalibur. Fans will also need to undergo day-of-game symptom screening via the CLEAR app, and masks must be worn with the exception of eating or drinking.
No bags will be permitted inside the arena, and all tickets are digital. None will be available at will call.
“Again, we acknowledge and understand that it’s an imperfect situation that we’re in,” Pollock said. “The great thing is we have so many members and so many fans that want to come to games. The downside is we don’t even have enough seats with 17,000 seats in a normal setting, let alone at 15 percent capacity.”
Plans for tickets to attend Henderson Silver Knights games are still in the works, Pollock said. Based on the Clark County directive, approximately 1,400 fans will be able to be in Orleans Arena.
March 18 is the soonest fans can be allowed at Silver Knights games.
“We do hope that for games later in March that we’re in the same position or even a greater position in terms of our capacity,” Pollock said.
When the Golden Knights host the Wild, it will have been 363 days since fans have been at T-Mobile Arena. Fans have gone as far as to travel to Glendale, Arizona for Coyotes games to see their team. But there’s nothing like watching a game at T-Mobile Arena.
Vegas will be the 11th team to allow fans.
