Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan announced on Twitter Tuesday the city's prospective NHL team will begin their season ticket drive on March 1.

Earlier this month the prospective ownership group, led by billionaire David Bonderman and Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer, submitted their application for an NHL franchise.

The filing fee is $10 million, with $2 million of that being non-refundable, even if the application is unsuccessful.

TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun noted at the time the next steps for the NHL include reviewing the application, requestion the submission of additional information, conducting league due diligence, a review with the Executive Committee, and a recommendation to the Board.

A Seattle team would play its games out of the to-be-renovated KeyArena, the former home of the NBA's SuperSonics.

The Vegas Golden Knights, who are currently playing their inaugural season, paid a $500 million expansion fee. The league's Board of Governors said that the cost for Seattle would be $650 million, with potential play beginning in the 2020-21 season.
