The Vegas Golden Knights National Hockey League (NHL) franchise has claimed a first with the introduction of an official live marketplace travel platform.

Vegas Golden Knights Travel will be powered by Toronto-based travel technology company, BookSeats. The travel platform will provide fans with a one-stop shop featuring discounted rates for custom ticket-inclusive travel packages for home and away games.

Fans will be able to create their own packages based on different preferences, with a variety of flight, hotel, and game ticket options to suit individual budgets. Fans can also purchase additional experiences.

The Vegas Golden Knights play home games at the 17,500-capacity T-Mobile Arena and won the Stanley Cup in 2022-23.

“We are so excited to announce the creation of Vegas Golden Knights Travel powered by BookSeats,” said Kerry Bubolz, president and chief executive of the Golden Knights. “Providing freedom of choice on hotels, dates, and discounted rates for these custom travel packages gives our fans another innovative way to attend games at T-Mobile Arena and on the road.”

Joseph DeMarinis, founder and chief executive of BookSeats, added: “Partnering with the Vegas Golden Knights marks an exciting chapter for BookSeats. Our collaboration aims to redefine the travel experience for both Golden Knights and NHL fans globally.

“The creation of ‘Vegas Golden Knights Travel’ is a testament to our commitment to enhancing fan engagement, providing unparalleled convenience, and fostering a deeper connection between fans and their favourite teams. We’re thrilled to embark on this journey with the Golden Knights, setting a new standard for fan travel in the world of sports.”
