LAS VEGAS Vegas Golden Knights are allowed to host a full-fledged T-Mobile Arena this season, many fans say they are comfortable and ready to go. The organization and its supporters have had to ride a two-season wave of epidemics. Last year’s playoffs were played entirely in the club with no fans allowed. This season starts without fans and allows for a 15 percent capacity in March, or about 2,600 fans.
“Even then, the power, you could feel it,” said John Borkowski, a Golden Knights fan, who visited Game Two on Tuesday. “There was a magnetic field.”
While the state and state reduced restrictions, the stadium saw more fans enter. During the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Castle is almost full.
“Given the increase in energy, it was amazing,” Christina Eclips said. “It’s starting to feel more and more like a real transaction, as we’re used to.”
What fans are accustomed to – a full and burning castle – is what many say they are ready to return to.
“I have been vaccinated 100 percent so I am relieved,” Borkowski said.
No energy-related announcements were made in future rounds.
Vegas Golden Knights welcome fans back to Fortress
About a year after fans packed the Castle with the intention of winning the Vegas Golden Knight defeating the New Jersey Devils, fans were once again allowed to entertain their team in person, at home on Monday night. And the Knights did the show, beating Minnesota Wild in overtime, 5-4.
“We’ve been waiting for tonight for a very long time. Everyone is so excited to be here. You’re so blessed to be here,” said Joey Quiroga fan
Since 2017, the Vegas Golden Knights have lifted the spirit of our team and united the community in powerful ways. The city that has been hit hardest by the epidemic, tonight is the level of good news.
“We know what the Knights mean in this city so I think this is a great time and I think it will be a moment again.” said Jeff Amidon, a VGK supporter.
Symptoms of the epidemic were all around. People who cover their faces, need only social exclusion and Castle only 15 percent full. About 2,600 fans can build the same power and volume as the perfect Fortress? Christopher Green Green of VGK said YES.
“Everyone can carry the weight of the whole stadium,” Green said. “You can be one fan. You can be 10 fans or 17,922 followers. All fans. You can be all fans.”
