Fans get revoked seats back

A Kelowna man who had his seasons tickets to the Las Vegas Golden Knights revoked, has got his seats back.

Nathan Zinner and four friends said they locked into a five-year contract and a three-year price lock with the Knights when they first bought the tickets. It worked out to about $4,400 a year for four season tickets. 

They wanted to be part of NHL history and bought the tickets right from the team's beginning. 

“We love Vegas and we love hockey,” said Zinner. “More than anything, it was the opportunity to get in from the start.”

On Jan. 2, he received an email from Golden Knights' membership services stating their memberships had been revoked. 

Zinner said the team thought the group was acting as brokers, but he says they are true fans. 

He told Castanet: “We weren’t trying to make a profit. It’s extremely frustrating.”

On Tuesday, the team called Zinner, and they came to a resolution and were convinced they were “true fans.”

“I felt like they were being honest with us and we were as well,” he said. “They want us in our seats as much as possible.”

Zinner said they are going to donate some tickets to the Golden Knights Foundation charity, and they will get to keep their tickets. 

“We are not just in it for the money,” he said. 

Zinner said he and his friends can’t wait to be back in their seats in February, for the next game they can attend.
