Back in February, we covered an incredible takeover of the Vegas Golden Knights’ arena by Flyers fans.

They even got off a post-Super Bowl LII victory “E-A-G-L-E-S! EAGLES!” chant in the second period.

Well, it looks like those fans may have forced Vegas to change a team policy for fans looking to attend games as an away fan. Phans of Phlly, a company that offers sports-related trips, received this lovely email from a Vegas Golden Knights representative regarding group tickets:
The Las Vegas Knights informed us they will not be selling us group ticket this year! You would think they want opposing fans traveling and supporting the city! When they suck in a few years they will be begging for business! LETS GO FLYERS!!! pic.twitter.com/OrHTIFJgIT

That’s right. No group tickets! Isn’t that part of the draw for having a team in Vegas? Way to go, Flyers fans. Seriously. That’s awesome.
