Are you itching to secure tickets for Seattle’s possible NHL franchise? Starting March 1, you can do so through a refundable deposit.

The Oak View Group, which is planning a $600 million renovation of KeyArena, and the City of Seattle on Tuesday unveiled the “On Sale” ticket-deposit campaign, which will allow Seattle-area hockey fans the chance to make deposits for season tickets beginning March 1 at NHLSeattle.com.

“I’m telling you, mark your calendars,” Mayor Jenny Durkan tweeted following her first State of the City address Tuesday at Rainier Beach High School.

Fans can submit deposits for regular- and club-season tickets. Regular-season ticket deposits will cost $500, and club-season tickets will go for $1,000. The differences between the two plans are detailed on NHLSeattle.com:

Season tickets are upper and lower level seat locations.

    — Price savings over individual game tickets

    — Same seat for 41 regular season home games, plus preseason home games

    — Playoff ticket priority

Club season tickets are center ice, lower level with additional benefits:

     — Preferred parking

     — Private club access

     — First priority access to select events at the renovated arena, including potential NBA club season tickets (if an NBA team plays its home games at the renovated arena)

If Seattle is awarded an NHL franchise, the cost of the season tickets would be announced in 2019. All deposits are refundable and will fans will be reimbursed if Seattle is unsuccessful in its bid for an expansion franchise.

The Oak View Group submitted its expansion application — along with a $10 million application fee — to the NHL last week.
