Hurricanes’ plan to ban Rangers’ fans from Round 2 exposed

So unfair!

The second round of the 2024 postseason is just around the corner for fans of the Carolina Hurricanes, who are set to face against the New York York in just a couple of days.

However, Rangers fans hoping to see the Blue Shirts on the road against the Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference second round might have a hard time finding a seat.

As they have done in the past, the Hurricanes have made the decision to restrict the purchase of tickets for their upcoming games to Carolina residents only. 

The plan to move ahead with restricted tickets does not please Rangers fans who hoped to make the trip to support their team.

One they log on to the platform to get their hands on the desired tickets, this is the message they will read once they enter their local postal code:

“PNC Arena is located in Raleigh, NC. Sales to this event will be restricted to residents of North Carolina, South Carolina and southern parts of 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.”

This is the third time both teams have face off against one another in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, with the Rangers winning back in 2022 and the Hurricanes sweeping New York in the qualifiers to advance to the playoffs in the pandemic postseason of 2020.

Meanwhile, Rangers fans have purchased all available tickets on the team website for potential games and the only tickets available are for expensive resale prices (lowest at $473.55 for section 419). The Rangers’ website does not have restrictions when going to purchase tickets.

This has several fans in uproar which will only add another level of intensity to the rivalry in the second round.

All dates and times for the second round series have not been announced yet, though the first game will take place on Sunday in New York.
