Game Etiquette
We love for you to stand and cheer; the excitement and enthusiasm is fantastic. However, we must maintain certain basic protocols. Whereas you may like to stand and cheer, others prefer to sit and cheer. Given that, fans who sit are entitled to enjoy the event from their seats without undue obstruction and annoying behavior. Many of our guests have mobility impairments and may not be able to stand as others are able to do. While rooting for the team, please be cognizant and courteous to those around you.

  • If you enjoy standing throughout the game, we ask that in the future you consider purchasing tickets in the last row of the seating section in order to allow others to enjoy the game from the comfort of their seats.
  • As a reminder, many families attending with their children object to vulgar and other inappropriate language. It is PNC Arena policy that such language will not be tolerated.
  • As a courtesy to others, we ask guests to wait for a stoppage in play before entering or leaving your section.
  • Banging on the glass and/or throwing objects on the ice is not only disruptive and dangerous to you, other fans, players and on-ice officials, but can also lead to a penalty being called on the Hurricanes. If there should be a delay in the game for repair of broken glass and/or stanchion which was caused by a fan banging on the glass or objects on the ice, then the Referees can call a minor penalty on the home team (Rule 68c. Interference by/with Spectators).
