Solitary tickets were sold on Friday, and the Knicks reiterated the existing entrance requirements.
The rules will be similar to those that were in place when fans returned last season. Madison Square Stadium is following the rules set down by the government and the league. All guests aged 12 and up must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination, indicating that they have received nearly one dose. Minors under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult who has been vaccinated, and children aged 5 to 11 must show documentation of a negative test.
Fans who have been fully vaccinated for at least 14 days after the final dose are exempt from wearing masks. Apart from when actively eating a meal, all other fans, especially children aged 2 to 11, will be forced to wear masks while in the Park.
Supporters will be required to produce a hard copy of their vaccination certificate or to use the New York Empire Pass or NYC COVID secure app, as well as an authorized ID verifying the name on the certificate.
The Knicks will play the Indiana Pacers in their opening series on Oct. 5, followed by two additional preseason games on Oct. 13 and 15. The Boston Celtics visit the Garden on Oct. 20 to kick off the season.
