Golden Knights officials are urging fans to be cautious of fraudulent tickets for the Western Conference final when tickets go on sale Thursday.
Vegas experienced more than 20 fraudulent tickets through the first two rounds of the playoffs.
The easiest way to identify fake tickets is if they are physical copies. The team does not sell paper tickets, meaning those selling hard copies in front of T-Mobile Arena are not legitimate.
Below are photos of fake tickets confiscated by the team.
The safest way to purchase tickets is through the team at https://www.nhl.com/goldenknights/tickets or on StubHub, which is the official secondary market ticket provider of the team.
The Golden Knights begin the series on Saturday at 4 p.m. The first two games will be in either Winnipeg or Nashville depending on the outcome of Thursday night’s Game 7 between the Jets and Predators.
The first home game will be Game 3, which starts at 6 p.m. May 16 at T-Mobile Arena. Game 4 will start at 5 p.m. on May 18. With the earlier start times team officials are suggesting fans show up to the arena earlier than usual.
Full season ticket holders will have the opportunity to preorder tickets on Tuesday, with partial season ticket holders having that opportunity on Wednesday, according to the team. Fans on the season ticket waiting list and purchasers of multiple game packs during the regular season will have pre-sale opportunities on Thursday.
Finally, tickets will be made available to the general public at noon on Thursday, with the cheapest seat starting at $225. The tickets prices are going up approximately 50 percent from the second-round prices.
Standing room only tickets will be sold for $175 to stand on Hyde Lounge with partially obstructed views. There will also be $125 tickets sold for a portion of Hyde Lounge that has no view of the rink, but allows fans to be in the arena and watch on televisions.
Full season ticket holders will once again be given the option of taking the “Knight’s Vow” program, which prevents them from reselling the tickets but give them cheaper prices. Knights Vow purchasers will pay 40 percent less than non-Knights Vow season ticket holders and 60 percent less than the general public.
The cheapest ticket for Knights Vow participants will be $125 per seat in the upper bowl.
Similar to the first two rounds, the team is expecting fewer than 1,000 tickets to be available for sale on Thursday after all pre-sales.
