ICE and Columbia Valley Rockies partner for upcoming season
Cranbrook, B.C. – The Kootenay ICE Hockey Club is pleased to announce a partnership with the Columbia Valley Rockies of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL).
During the 2017-18 season, ICE season seat holders will receive 15% off individual tickets to Rockies’ games with proof of their season seat card. In addition, all Rockies’ season seat holders will receive 15% off individual game tickets to ICE home games.
Along with this benefit, the ICE and Rockies will also be hosting a hockey festival, which includes a practice and family skate, on Sunday, January 21st on Lake Windermere. More details will be released at a later date.
“We are extremely excited to be announcing this partnership with the Rockies,” explained Reid Mitchell, Director of Corporate Partnerships and Fan Experience. “Not only the ticket benefits, but also the opportunity to co-host a hockey festival specifically designed for fan engagement and enjoyment for our community and its future hockey stars, is something we’re really excited to be part of.”
“The Columbia Valley Rockies are very pleased and privileged to engage in a partnership with the Kootenay ICE that will benefit both junior hockey and its fanbase across all of the East Kootenays,” stated Rockies’ President Graeme Anderson. “This is an exciting opportunity for local KIJHL teams and their fans to experience what our neighbouring WHL team has to offer, and to introduce more WHL fans to our own brand of junior development hockey.”
Last month, the ICE announced a similar partnership with the Kimberley Dynamiters of the KIJHL, which included the same benefits for season seat holders.
Along with this additional benefit, those who purchase ICE season seats also receive 10% off concessions at ICE games – excluding alcohol and bottled Pepsi products -, 15% off regular priced ICE merchandise, a minimum of five rain check nights for unused ICE season seats and access to exclusive VIP events.
Season seats for the 2017-18 ICE season can be purchased by calling 250-417-0322, stopping by the Kootenay ICE office at Western Financial Place or ordering online at ICEcountry.ca.
