The Carolina Hurricanes implement new policy to try and ban Rangers' fans from their home games

The Carolina Hurricanes have officially made the decision to refuse to sell tickets to anyone from the New York area in an attempt to keep a "home crowd" feel during their second round match up with the Rangers. This isn't the first time we've heard about this during this year's playoffs, but it seems it's happening again. The Nashville Predators did something similar in round one against the Colorado Avalanche.

The Hurricanes new policy prevents anyone from "out of state" from purchasing any tickets to the upcoming series. When anyone attempts to purchase tickets they receive the following message.

Very Important!! PNC Arena is located in Raleigh, NC. Sales to this event will be restricted to residents of North Carolina/South Carolina and Southern Virginia. Residency will be based on credit card billing address. Orders by residents outside North Carolina/South Carolina and Southern Virginia will be canceled without notice and refunds given.




As of Monday afternoon, there was a large amount of Hurricanes-Rangers tickets available at face value as low as $100.00 from the Hurricanes' website for every potential home game of the series. This policy does not prevent tickets from being sold on the resale market and likely only prevents the Hurricanes franchise from generating additional income from out of state visitors.
