LAS VEGAS (FOX5) –
It’s clear that Vegas Golden Knights fans come out in full force to support their home group.
“The best people that I have actually seen in hockey,” Brian Rankin, a just recently converted Golden Knights fan said. “Live in Las Vegas.”
Whether it be inside T-Mobile Arena, at Toshiba Plaza or at any bar with a TELEVISION on video game day, it is tough to miss out on fans backing the black and gold.
“From the beginning,” Golden Knights fan, Kayla Knatz stated. “This is year one, we are here to support them, we love Vegas Golden Knights … woooo!”
When it’s time to ‘Knight Up’ in D.C., the cheers may not be as loud, in part, due to the fact that of a message published by Ticketmaster.
The message read: “Please keep in mind Capital One Arena lies in Washington D.C. Sales to the event will be limited to locals of Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia. Residency will be based upon credit card billing address.”
“It’s unfair,” Knatz said. “We ought to exist supporting them, just like the Caps are here supporting their group.”
Ticketmaster delayed further comment to the Washington Capitals. According to their interactions team, both Games 3 and 4 are totally sold out. There are no tickets readily available. Still, some fans believe the constraint was since the VGK tickets sell out quickly and limiting it is the only method to make sure the Caps are well represented.
“I indicate it’s their home town,” Knatz stated. “They want to support their group just like we wish to support our group.”
But there might be a method around the constraint. Stub Center officials said they comprehend the desire to keep the home crowd environment, but they won’t be limiting sales based upon address because Stub Center is a reseller, constructed as an open marketplace.
However fans said inside Capital One Arena or not, they will be loud and proud cheering their team towards the Stanley Cup.
