It'll be a little different than any event our team has hosted.

After all, how many fans can say they've been in an NHL arena at 3:00 in the morning?

But this is the sort of thing that will be possible next week, when the Golden Knights host a unique 24-hour Open House at T-Mobile Arena. From 8:00 AM on Tuesday, Feb. 21 until 8:00 AM on Wednesday, Feb. 22 at 8:00 AM, fans, whether currently owning season tickets or not, have an open invitation to stop by T-Mobile Arena.

The purpose of the event is to help get fans acclimated with the facility, and get to mingle with fellow Golden Knights fans and staff.

But as senior vice president and chief marketing officer Nehme Abouzeid detailed on Fox 5 on Wednesday, the event will have other interesting wrinkles to it as well.

RELATED: What else will the team's 24-hour Open House include?

"We're going to open T-Mobile Arena for 24 hours," Abouzeid said. "We're going to allow people to come in, take their final looks at the limited inventory of season tickets we have available.

"We're also unveiling 11 and 22-game, partial season plans. This gives people an opportunity to buy smaller amounts of games, so they can get in on the action.

"There'll be sections they can view of where they can get those 11 and 22-game packs.

"There's going to be fun on the arena floor. We're going to have interactive games. You're going to learn hockey a bit from our hockey staff, on the arena floor.

"We're going to give away a pair of tickets to our historic first game every hour. So we're going to give away 48 tickets. So that'll be a momentous day to be able to go to game one, whether you're a season ticket holder or not. It'll be a lot of fun.

"We want to cater to the fact, and want to be sensitive that this is a three-shift town, for people that are in the casino industry. 24 hours, there's an opportunity for everyone to get in."

As part of a more extended interview with Fox, Abouzeid also provided an update on Behind The Vegas Ice, the behind-the-scenes docudrama that's chronicling our team's march to Opening Night this October.

Abouzeid also spoke about the team's trip to the NHL All-Star Game in January, where although not represented by any players, Vegas sent its staff and #BoldInGoldContest winners in the 31st NHL team's first invite to a full-scale league event.
