If the New York Knicks defeat the Atlanta Hawks in their first-round series and advance in the playoffs, there won’t be an unvaccinated individual at Madison Square Garden moving forward.
On Friday, the Knicks announced that tickets for games at MSG will only be sold to vaccinated fans if they advance to the second-round of the playoffs.
The New York Knicks today announced that Game 5 of their 2021 NBA playoffs series against the Atlanta Hawks, scheduled for June 5, has sold out. This follows Game 1, when the Knicks welcomed more than 15,000 fans and Game 2, when they expanded their seating for fully-vaccinated fans and increased capacity to more than 16,000. The two games mark the largest indoor crowds to gather in New York since the start of the pandemic. Given the enthusiastic response to vaccination requirements, the team also announced that, should they advance past round one, tickets will be sold exclusively to fully-vaccinated individuals.
