All 18,000 tickets for the L.A. Kings celebration at Staples Center are sold out, organizers said Tuesday night.

The hourlong "championship rally" is scheduled to begin at Staples Center on Thursday at 2:30 p.m. and will feature video highlights, presentations and speeches from several players.

The event, along with a downtown parade, were announced following the team's Stanley Cup victory Monday over the New Jersey Devils, the team said.

The free tickets were distributed on a first-come, first-served basis and were available online. Officials had said that season-ticket holders and suite and premier seat owners would be given priority, with the remaining tickets made available to the public at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Prior to the rally, Kings players will take part in the parade scheduled to start at noon near 5th and Figueroa streets. The procession will proceed south on Figueroa and end between L.A. Live and Staples Center, city officials said.

Players and their families, coaches and others are expected to ride in double-decker buses and other vehicles during the 30- to 45-minute parade.
