We invite our fans to become the first bitcoin suite holders in sports. We’re excited to be one of a handful of teams to accept cryptocurrency for payment and the first to price tickets in crypto instead of U.S. currency. The price of a season suite may fluctuate depending on when it’s purchased, which adds to the excitement.

Fans who decide to purchase the full suite will not only benefit from a private room but will experience a special experience, including free snakes and a private restroom.

The offer ends on April 1st and due to bitcoin’s fluctuating price it may be cheaper to pay by bitcoin rather than US dollars.
