Bill Foley and his team at Hockey Vision Las Vegas, LLC. are getting prepared for their season ticket drive for a potential new NHL team in Las Vegas. The plan is to begin the drive on February 10 with the collection of season ticket deposits for the team though their web site. The goal of the organization is to sign up at least 10,000 season ticket deposits.
The NHL league officials have given their approval to Foley and his team for a ticket drive to collect interest in a new team. League officials are expected to be in town on February 10 to kick off the season ticket drive push. The league has expressed interest in a team in Las Vegas but will not make a firm decision until the results of the season ticket drive are in.
If the team gets approval by the NHL, they are set to play at the new AEG/MGM Resorts International Las Vegas Arena located near the New York-New York and Monte Carlo casino resorts. The new arena, which broke ground on May 1, 2014 is expect to have seating capacity of 17,500 for hockey.
Fans wishing to secure season tickets will need to submit a deposit ranging from $150 to $900 per seat. The total cost for the season tickets will range anywhere from $860 for seats in the upper ends to $9,460 for center ice seats in the lower bowl.
