Many fans were worried about Stanley Cup Final ticket prices being too much for them to afford, but what about the ones willing to spend the cash to see the Golden Knights only to find out that the website wouldn't let them?
Fans flocked to social media shortly after single-game tickets went on sale for the Golden Knights upcoming home games with stories of website image failures, long waiting times, and error messages.
@GoldenKnights I waited all morning only to be put in a random queue and when I get it, the site wont even load properly so I couldn't select tickets on the map so I can't even get a chance to select seats. now only tickets available are resales for 4 times face value. pic.twitter.com/tcUMGdPDa7

Many of those with complaints seemed to focus them on the AXS ticketing website and the procedures put in place.
your purchase system is a joke. hopefully @TMobileArena and @GoldenKnights find a reliable retailer that can put thier purchasing system on a server that can actually handle more than 2 people. way to screw people.

We've reached out to the Golden Knights for comment but have yet to hear back.
With that being said, there are a fair amount of fans that were able to get their hands on Stanley Cup tickets during this morning's rush. Those fans are excited to cheer on the Golden Knights as they attempt to cap off their historical season.

If you're still looking for tickets to the Stanley Cup Final games there are options available through secondary ticket market. Websites such as StubHub and SeatGeek will have tickets available.
