NBA’s Knicks will require fans to be vaccinated

Unvaccinated fans of the New York Knicks have just been cut off.

Breitbart reports that, if the Knicks advance in the NBA playoffs, then the organization has decided that it will not allow unvaccinated individuals to attend games at New York’s Madison Square Garden. 

“Exclusive” tickets

The Knicks organization revealed its decision in a statement that it released on Friday.

“Given the enthusiastic response to vaccination requirements, the team also announced that, should they advance past round one, tickets will be sold exclusively to fully-vaccinated individuals,” the press release reads.

The statement suggests that motivating this decision was the fact that fans responded well, even “enthusiatic[ally],” to vaccination requirements that the organization imposed on fans during earlier playoff games. According to the Knicks, more than 90 percent of those in attendance during the first round of the playoffs were vaccinated.

Entry requirements

What this all means, according to the Knicks, is that “for entry [to a game at Madison Square Garden], all fans must present valid proof of either full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 antigen or PCR test, along with an appropriate ID matching their documentation.”

The “proof” is provided by an app that fans are required to download on their phones. After downloading this app, users are then required to upload the relevant information, such as vaccination information, and then, they will either be cleared or not cleared by the Knicks to attend a game in person.

Madison Square Garden Sports executive vice president David Hopkinson praising the Knicks latest announcement.

“The energy our Knicks fans have brought to the playoffs has been incredible, proving there’s nothing more exciting than Knicks basketball at the Garden,” he said. “It’s moments like this that show us what’s possible if everyone gets vaccinated — we’ll all be able to get back to doing what we love — and that definitely includes being together to cheer on the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.”

Background

This all comes after an incident at Madison Square Garden last week when a fan was ejected – and later banned – after spitting at an Atlanta Hawks player.

There does not appear to be any relationship between this incident and the Knick’s latest decision to mandate vaccinations.

Rather, it appears that many entities are moving in the direction of requiring proof of vaccination from the public. The Knicks are just one of the organizations that have actually now gone ahead and taken that step.

  14. Maybe no people will show up for their games. There are many people who actually read the real truth about the vaccines and the harm they can cause.

  15. didn’t think they could legally ask for proof. the rule here in some businesses is mask up if not vaccinated but they can’t legally ask if you are.

    can some businesses survive on only the vaccinated? there are many of us who have no intention of getting vaccinated. as you said these are dangerous vaccines(actually they are not vaccines they are genetic modifiers).

    1. no the only thing these people block are true, factual comments that offend them, we will see as I am going to post a comment to this article

  16. well this proves it to me. NBA orr basketball fans are total idiots that are all afraid of thier own shadow.. Me I don’t watch pro sports (exceept for a bit of pro hockey but not much of that either) as all the pro organizations support some of the biggest lies being told today. But I never watched basketball, except some co;;age but even then I was bored because I would rather watch seals shoot hoops than the over paid, really stupid, pro basketball players.

  17. You have to supply all that to attend a basketball game that still charges full price, unless it’s a playoff, then you pay more. And it’s still un-American to have to show a simple ID to vote. Most people who read this think I’m the one with the problem.

  18. Where is the legal support to demand proof of vaccination? There is no legal basis. These overdemanding, useless fools, need to be taught a lesson. There is a United Nations’ declaration that protects humans from being forced to vaccinate. Hey, lawyers, this is you big opportunity to make BIG, BIG, MONEY!
