As expected, the in-arena experience for Vegas Golden Knights home games will be unlike any other in the NHL.
The Golden Knights have entered into a multi-year partnership with the world-renowned entertainment brand, as announced Thursday.
"Cirque du Soleil is an iconic, worldwide entertainment brand and we are thrilled to partner with them in this capacity,” said Golden Knights vice president of global partnerships Michael Mungiello. "Cirque du Soleil has had a significant presence in Las Vegas since 1992 and continues to be one of the most popular entertainment options in town.
"We are always looking for creative ways to enhance the overall fan experience at our home games and this partnership certainly helps advance that objective."
In addition to cross-promotional branding elements, the Golden Knights will host "Cirque du Soleli" nights, which will feature live intermission entertainment.
Cirque du Soleil has seven permanent resident shows in Las Vegas.
