Edmonton Oilers host incredible in game experience while the team is on the road

Rogers Place is where the Edmonton Oilers play their home games. During the playoffs this season Edmonton fans have packed Rogers Place to watch away games as well. This is common for teams to do this during the playoffs but Edmonton has upped the production value.

During Game 4 on Sunday, Oilers fans packed into their home arena to watch their team beat the LA Kings in thrilling overtime fashion.


A fan shared a video of the watch party, which featured «real-time puck/player tracking» on the ice along with a broadcast of the game on the scoreboard.


Fans in attendance shared their experience:

"The atmosphere is insane, quite similar to a regular game,»

«Net proceeds go to charity. Best place to watch a game.»

«This is amazing. I would go to watch games like this for the regular season,»

According to the Rogers Place website, Road Game Watch Party tickets are only $5 each, with net proceeds benefitting the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation. Just like regular games purchased Watch Party tickets have an assigned seat in the arena's lower or upper bowl.

Since the ongoing series between Edmonton and LA is tied at two games a piece and the Oilers have home-ice advantage, Game 6 is the only road game on the schedule for now.

From the fan reaction this seems like a brilliant idea from the Oilers. The NHL is a copy cat league, I can definitely see other teams following this trend.
