The owner of the Vegas Golden Knights, Bill Foley, was not very happy at how many red clad Capitals supporters were in T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Monday night.
Traveling Capitals fans have already dealt with their fair share of restrictions this postseason, including dress codes and geo-blocking of ticket purchases.
However, Foley appears to have taken it personally that many Caps fans showed up and sat with one another.
“Foley also said he has advised staff that he does not want so many fans in opposition jerseys filling seats at T-Mobile Arena like they did during this past regular season and was concerned that were blocks of red-clad Washington Capitals fans in the venue for Game 1 Monday.”
“I don’t like it,” Foley said.
Foley wants blocks of tickets sold on StubHub, the team’s secondary ticket partner, to be split up.
“I can move around the ticket locations,” Foley said. “I don’t want to see them together.”
He estimated about 2,000 fans in T-Mobile Arena Monday were Capitals fans, perhaps 12 percent or so.
Foley has personally requested that StubHub, the team’s secondary ticket partner, break up blocks of tickets so that Caps fans cannot sit together. Wow. It seems Mr. Foley has gone full Mean Girls.
