A few hundred hockey fans are getting “first in line” treatment to buy the hottest hockey ticket in town – the 2007 RBC Royal Bank Cup Tournament Pass. Last year, the group involved with the bid to host the 2007 National Junior A Championship invited fans to show their support for hosting the event by putting a $10 deposit on a tournament pass.
“The tremendous support of our community played a big part in Prince George being awarded the championship. Now we want to thank those people who made deposits by giving them the first opportunity to buy tickets,” says Dan Rogers, co-chair of the 2007 RBC Royal Bank Cup Host Committee.
Over Christmas, letters were sent to the more than 400 people who placed deposits. The letter contained information about the tournament passes that are available. Packages include reserved seating of your choice at all thirteen games, plus access to great off ice events like the Castle Cabaret, awards reception and banquet. Tournament packages start at $160.
“We’ve come up with packages to suit every taste,” says Don Kehler, co-chair of the 2007 RBC Royal Bank Cup. “It’s great value with the opportunity to watch national calibre hockey and enjoy events and activities that celebrate Canada’s greatest game.”
The passes are available exclusively until January 20 for those who placed a deposit. From January 21 – February 28, Spruce King Season Ticket Holders will have an opportunity to get their passes. On March 1, passes will go on sale to the general public. For more information about ticket sales, contact Ticketmaster at 564-5585 or call the Spruce Kings office.
The 2007 RBC Royal Bank Cup National Junior A Hockey Championship will take place May 5-13, 2007 in Prince George. It is expected to draw hockey fans from across the country, with the final game televised live on TSN. The impact of this event for the local economy is estimated to be close to $1 million.
