Las Vegas, NV (KXST) - Entry into the Fortress to watch the Vegas Golden Knights has been granted.

The team on Monday received permission to host fans at the T-Mobile Arena, with a 15 percent capacity limit put in place. That works out to around 2,600 fans allowed inside.

Though happy to get some fans back in the seats, officials with the Golden Knights were hoping for 20 percent capacity, a limit set by Governor Steve Sisolak last week. Last week the Las Vegas Motor Speedway was given permission for 15 percent fan capacity for NASCAR weekend March 5th-7th.
