T-Mobile Arena is about to welcome about 1,000 more fans for Vegas Golden Knights games in March.
The Golden Knights have been given the OK to up capacity at their home barn to 20 percent, a 5 percent increase from what was initially approved for in March.
In February, the Golden Knights were approved for 15 percent capacity for all home games this month, or 2,600 fans. With this increase, approximately 3,500 fans will be able to attend Golden Knights games.
Vegas has five more home games in the month of March; two against the San Jose Sharks (March 15-17), March 22 against the St. Louis Blues, then two more against the Los Angeles Kings (March 29-31).
The Henderson Silver Knights were just recently approved to allow 15 percent of fans inside Orleans Arena for home games. The Silver Knights’ first game with fans will be March 20 against the San Jose Barracuda.
It goes without saying this is good news. The more fans that can attend Golden Knights games, the sooner we can hopefully put COVID-19 in the rearview mirror. However, it’s paramount everyone continues to do their part.
According to the Southern Nevada Health District, nearly 600,000 vaccines have been distributed in Clark County as of March 10. One can only imagine what this means by the end of the season, and there’s nothing better than a full arena come playoff time.
However, it’s a one-day-at-a-time thing that we’re all enduring right now.
