Slegr Posted April 2, 2015 Share Posted April 2, 2015 Not only are the Tampa Bay Lightning restricting certain playoff tickets to residents of Florida, they are also banning any team logos other than their own in certain areas of their arena.

Residency will be based on credit card billing address. Orders by residents outside the selected area will be canceled without notice and refunds given. Chase Club and Lexus Lounge ticket holders - please note that for all 2015 NHL Playoff Games at Amalie Arena, only Tampa Bay Lightning team logos will be permitted in these areas. Fans wearing visiting team logos will be asked to remove them while in the Chase Club and Lexus Lounge areas." I'm of a mixed mind on this one. I've watched a game in Tampa, and it has been pretty neat to see the fans in that area support their team so much. I'd say it's a pretty significant accomplishment for such a warm-climate US organization to have the luxury to be able to limit tickets and dress codes to who they would like. Teams like Phoenix will take anyone. On the other hand, I thought the US was all about freedom. Imagine if the Canucks, or any Canadian market tried this bold move.
