SEATTLE — Seattle Kraken fans who put down a deposit on season tickets in 2018 will soon be able to begin selecting their seats.
The team said Tuesday depositors and fans on the season ticket waitlist will receive an email outlining the next steps. The seat selection process will begin on August 24 in order of priority number. The process will be virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Kraken created 40 different seating plans and will be offering more than 9,000 22-game plans. The team said the number of 22-game plans is the most in the NHL.
They intend to have 5,000 season ticket plans priced at less than $100 per seat per game and will have 600 single-game tickets priced at $40 or less, according to a press release.
On March 1, 2018, the Kraken franchise notched sports history as the fastest professional franchise to reach 10,000 depositors in 12 minutes, plus the unprecedented and astounding 32,000 cash depositors in one day, according to the Kraken's website.
"This franchise is forever indebted to our 32,000 deposit holders who stood with us to show the NHL we are a hockey town with an exclamation point," said Tod Leiweke, Kraken CEO. "They gave this franchise life in one day. We created a ticket plan to reward those depositors and give them all the chance to be part of the most intimate seating bowl in the NHL.”
The team said fans who purchase the half-season plan will attend the Kraken's opening weekend of two home openers, which the team said is targeted for a Thursday and Saturday night.
The team will begin to play at Climate Pledge Arena in the 2021-22 season.
