Season ticket drive for NHL team starts March 1

Refundable deposits on season tickets for Seattle’s prospective NHL franchise in 2020 will be taken starting at 10 a.m. March 1, the city and Seattle Center arena developer Oak View Group announced Tuesday.

The deposit for each season ticket is $500, and $1,000 per ticket in the club-seat section. Information on the deposit process can be found at

Applicants will be given a priority number that reserves a place in line to select available season ticket seat locations in the renovated arena. Notification will be sent via email in five business days.

If the NHL does not grant a franchise, deposits are refundable. If a franchise is granted, actual ticket costs will be determined in 2019. Here is a link to the season ticket prices for the Vancouver Canucks season tickets for 2017-18.

The season-ticket drive is modeled after the one in Las Vegas for the Golden Knights franchise in 2015. The goal of 10,000 deposits was reached within a month.

OVG CEO Tim Leiweke and prospective team co-owner Jerry Bruckheimer, one of Hollywood’s most successful filmmakers, will have a press conference Feb. 28 to update progress on the application for the expansion franchise.

    well now…crunch time is here. How many self absorbed techies actually care about hockey. There are not enough true Seattleites left from past generations to buy tickets. I think there are minimal tech workers new to Seattle who give a crap… about anything (much less nhl hockey). I will regretfully watch this ticket drive fizzle.

    Wow, 26,000 deposits sold in one hour for a arena that only seats 17,000.

      I hope they realize the average ticket price per game for the poorest team was $94 last season….and the price went up and up from there.
