Due to what they’re calling “incredibly high demand,” the Flames announced on Saturday that the game-night viewing party will be shifting to a ticketed event effective immediately.

“The decision to move to a ticketed event was made to enhance the fan experience by decreasing the line and wait times for the RED Lot and ensuring the safety of everyone in attendance,” the Flames said in a media release. “Tickets will remain free, but must be secured in advance, and will be available based on a strict capacity limit; those without tickets will not be permitted entrance to RED Lot under any circumstances and are asked not to come to the site.”

Tickets for the Game 7 viewing party will be made available — with a limit of two tickets per person — starting at 9 a.m. Sunday morning from A Flames game ticket will not provide access to the Red Lot.

The Red Lot will open two hours prior to the scheduled 7:30 p.m. puck-drop.

“We understand that demand for RED Lot tickets will very likely outweigh supply, and would like to reiterate our tremendous gratitude for the extraordinary support of the C of Red,” the Flames offered in their statement. “Further updates will be provided through our social media channels.”

The Flames and Stars are tied 3-3 in their best-of-seven first-round NHL playoff series. Winner of Sunday night’s Game 7 advances to the second round.
