Nuggets and Avalanche fans, rejoice!
If you've missed going to a basketball or hockey game, we've got some exciting news! Because both the Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche have received permission from the State of Colorado to host fans at Ball Arena (formerly Pepsi Center). Kroenke Sports & Entertainment (KSE) made the announcement last Thursday.
Beginning on Friday, April 2, Ball Arena will open up to a limited number of fans, up to 4,050 people, or about 22% capacity.
"We are thrilled to welcome Avalanche and Nuggets fans to the newly-named Ball Arena for the first time," said KSE Chairman and Owner Stan Kroenke. “We are grateful to local, state and national health authorities who collaborated with us to get to this point. We also would like to thank our partners at the NHL and NBA, who have worked tirelessly to ensure a safe return for our fans. This is a major first step in our quest to have a fully packed arena again with some of the greatest fans in sports."
Ticket access will be given first to Avalanche and Nuggets ticket plan holders and partners through multiple presales. Information will be sent via email in the coming days. KSE has said that a limited amount of seats will be available to the general public. Keep an eye on the teams' websites for updated information.
Frontline staff, health care providers, and first responders will be in attendance for the Nuggets game on March 30 and the Avalanche game on March 31 before the first game for ticketed fans on April 2.
