Photo opp: make sure to stop by the VGK letters and snap an Instagram-worthy pic.
VGK play-by-play announcer, Dave Goucher, had this to say about taking in the full game-day experience. “I would be there for the whole experience. I’d make it like a whole day, you know. There’s plenty of spots around T-Mobile. But I’d be there from the march into the Fortress to the warmups because there’s nothing like it in the league.”
Toshiba Plaza will fill up with fans and even if you don’t have a ticket to the game the atmosphere on game days is awesome to be a part of.
The Armory team store to the right of the main entrance is a must-visit for all fans and make sure to snap a pic with the Chance mascot statute.
This season the team will require fans to wear masks in accordance with the state mandate.
And a tip for T-Mobile customers you get priority entry access via the T-Mobile customer entrance at all arena events.
