This is not a test of the Emergency Broadcast System, and it is not one of those blessed mid-afternoon fire drills that interrupted a math test. Pittsburgh Penguins tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Tuesday morning.
Single-game tickets for the Pittsburgh Penguins’ first seven March home games at PPG Paints Arena will go on sale to the general public Tuesday at 10 a.m. at www.ticketmaster.com/penguins.
We repeat. This is not a drill.
PA Governor Tom Wolf seemingly caught many by surprise on Monday and eased travel restrictions and public gathering restrictions, allowing the Penguins to accept 2800 fans for each home game immediately.
Whether that 2800 includes players, staff, and fans, or that 2800 is the number of fans was a matter for a chuckle on Monday. When asked, Penguins President David Morehouse kidded the reporter.
“Are you going to stand outside with a counter?”
Morehouse did say the 2800 number is the number of fans, not the total number of building occupants.
The Penguins have three straight games against the Philadelphia Flyers at PPG Paints Arena this week. PHN can only hope that no orange and black jerseys make it inside, but given the state of the world, we’ll even off the good will to our Halloween-colored friends. Philadelphia is also preparing to accept fans this weekend.
The Penguins are 11-8-1 and fresh from a bruising loss to the New York Islanders on Sunday, 2-0. Evgeni Malkin is one Penguins player who cited a lack of fans as a reason for the trying season.
The Penguins season ticket holder’s exclusive rights to the tickets end on Tuesday at 10 a.m. After, the tickets will be available to the general public.
Tickets will be sold in pods of two, three, and four seats.
If you’re lucky enough to score tickets, here are the Penguins rules, regulations, and helpful tips for attending. Don’t be that jag that ruins it for others. Penguins “know before you go.”
Also, a limited number of private PNC Legends Level suites are available, accommodating eight guests. To discuss rental options, please call 412.642.PENS.
