The Los Angeles Kings were formed in 1967 as part of the NHL's expansion program in that
area. The team participates in the Pacific Division and the Western Conference. Success has
not always come for Los Angeles Kings tickets holders; however their support was rewarded
last season when they managed to win their first and only Stanley Cup title. The Los Angeles
Kings tickets holders have seen some very good players play for their team, however team
chemistry has never been a strong point. For one reason or another, the team always
The likes of Marcel Dionne, Dave Taylor, Luc Robitaille, Rogie Vachon, and Wayne Gretzky
were some of the best players the NHL has seen and they all played for the Los Angeles
Kings. Those who bought Los Angeles Kings tickets on a regular basis got to see these, and
many more, stars but they never saw a winning team. That was the one ingredient that was
always missing. It took a long time, but eventually the Kings figured out how to appease
their long suffering fans.
The past five seasons have been interesting for a Los Angeles Kings tickets holder. There
were no playoffs in 2007-08 and 2008-09 and there were QF losses in 2009-10 and 2010-11.
There was no reason to think that ultimate success was on the way, but 2011-12 turned out
to be an incredible season. The team managed to squeeze into the playoffs, but that is when
they found their form. Beating everyone in sight and eventually slaughtering their Stanley
Cup final opponents, the team won their first trophy by beating the Devils 4 games to 2.
Since 1999, the Los Angeles Kings have played their home games at the Staples Center. This
is a stadium that they have shared with the far more successful Los Angeles Lakers and the
Los Angeles Clippers. The arena's capacity is 18,118 for hockey games and 18,867 if certain
areas are turned into standing sections. Los Angeles Kings tickets are sold out for most home
games, with fans coming to see their team in high numbers no matter who they are playing.
The great thing about seasonal Los Angeles Kings tickets holders is that they never stopped
supporting the team. While supporting the basketball team, the Lakers, is more fashionable
in L.A., Kings fans never wavered in their dedication to ice hockey. This was something that
they felt might never be rewarded, until the incredible 2011-2012 season. The Kings were
not considered favorites by any means and even being in the playoffs was considered a
success by Los Angeles Kings tickets holders. However, the team went from strength to
strength and peaked at exactly the right moment.
Los Angeles Kings fans have been through a lot. These Los Angeles Kings tickets holders have
seen years of no success, even bankruptcy in 1993, yet they kept on coming. They knew that
eventually their team would produce the goods. And boy did they do that. By playing as a
team, the Los Angeles Kings gave their fans the success they had been craving.
