LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings will play a special preseason game in Las Vegas against the Colorado Avalanche – Frozen Fury 15 – Saturday, Sept. 29 to kick-off a new five-year contract between the Kings and MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, the Kings announced today.
The new agreement extends the Kings-MGM Grand Garden Arena relationship into the Kings’ 2016 pre-season schedule. The Kings played their initial Frozen Fury preseason contest at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in 1997 against Colorado.
“We love the relationship that we have with MGM Grand and we are very excited to have it continue,” said Kings President, Business Operations Luc Robitaille. “The game is really an event and it is great for our fans.”
This year’s preseason game in Las Vegas will begin at 7 p.m. It is the second Kings pre-season game that the club has announced thus far. The Kings and the Ducks will play at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario on October 6 beginning at 7 p.m. That game will be ‘split down the middle’ with half of the arena reserved for Kings fans and the other half reserved for Ducks fans. There will be approximately 9,500 tickets available for this game (not including suites).
Kings season ticket member (full and partial plan members) pre-sales for both games will begin on May 22. Special group ticket prices are also available. Tickets for the general public can be purchased beginning on June 21.

The club’s complete 2012 Preseason Schedule and the 2012-13 regular season schedule will be announced at a later date (the games in Las Vegas and in Ontario are considered home games for the Kings).
