Vegas locals are a fickle bunch, and with the Golden Knights no longer a “winning team,” and ticket sales in a series slouch they’ve turned to Groupon to sell the tickets at up to 50% off the regular price.
We don’t know if this is because of a losing streak or some sort of result of the weird cancelation rule that the instituted last year.
The Vegas Golden Knights “have canceled several hundred (season ticket) accounts and counting and will continue to do so” since spring after season ticket holders were “upset that there are too many tickets for resell or too many visiting team fans in the building.”
This is additionally strange, because according to the VGK the team has a bout double the ticket sales of the New York Rangers and Chicago Blackhawks, respectively, and the Golden Knights dominate the top 10 list of most in-demand games.
It’s very possible that most of the people who bought season tickets and early tickets were just business folks who wanted to resell them, and the actual crowds have nothing to do with it? With the tickets going on sale on Groupon, one has to wonder what is really going on.
