NHL Seattle is today (Thursday) starting the first phase of its season ticket allocation process for its inaugural year with seat selection for club seats.

Club seat deposit holders who placed a $1,000 deposit in March 2018 will be invited to an in-person appointment at the New Arena at Seattle Center Preview Center, in order of priority number. About 2,600 club-level seats will be reserved in this round.

The team says club seats will each cost between $285 and $355 based on a 44-game season ticket package and will be on three-, five- or seven-year terms.

The process moves to general seat deposit holders in Spring 2020, with prices starting at $50 per game, with some single-game tickets starting at $20.

The club said fans looking to resell tickets will be able to go through an “exclusive secondary ticket-resale platform” that will be made known later.

NHL Seattle said it has already sold 80 per cent of suites ahead of its 2021 debut.

The team is scheduled to play at the new NHL arena in Seattle, which is on course to open in the summer of 2021 as construction work continues on the site of the former KeyArena facility. The arena, which will have a capacity of 17,400 for ice hockey games, broke ground on December 5 last year and is expected to cost around $930m (£749m/€844m).
