SEATTLE (AP) — A group looking to bring an expansion NHL team to Seattle for the 2020-21 season says it has received 33,000 deposits for season tickets and won't accept more.

Oak View Group on Saturday started a waitlist for those who missed out.

The season-ticket drive is one of the steps required by the NHL as part of the expansion process and is meant to gauge interest in the market.

Fans were required to put down a deposit of $500 per ticket or $1,000 for club tickets.

Oak View Group sold 25,000 ticket commitments in two hours on Thursday and reached 33,000 late Friday afternoon.

In a statement the group thanks fans for their support and asks for patience as it seeks to be fair to all those who submitted deposits.
