Less Than 100 Days Until 2010 RBC Cup
February 11, 2010

Excitement and anticipation is starting to mount as less than 100 days remain until the 2010 RBC Cup, Canada’s 40th National Junior A Championship. The tournament is set to for May 1-9 at Credit Union Place in Dauphin, Man.

According to Doug Hedley, event coordinator for the 2010 RBC Cup, ticket sales are starting to pick up.

“With early-bird and regular ticket sales, sponsor tickets, Hockey Canada and visiting team ticket requirements factored in, we now have less than 900 seats left to sell,” says Hedley.  “Ticket sales through Dauphin’s Countryfest box office have been steady, and with more and more requests coming from out of town we’re starting to gain confidence that the event will sell-out. The recent announcement of Charlie Major headlining the opening night cabaret/saloon has also helped push ticket sales.”  

With the Junior A trade deadline come and gone, teams are beginning the drive for the playoffs, and excitement is building for a run to the RBC Cup. This has been noticed at the ticket office as requests for ticket information is coming in from across Western Canada.

Full-tournament packages are available for $240 (plus fees and taxes) for regular seats and $270 (plus fees/taxes) for club seats. A VIP feature which includes benefits like front-of-the-line service and VIP Lounge access is available for an additional $160, and can be added to either a regular or club seat ticket package.  

Dauphin’s Countryfest is the official ticket box office, so in-person sales may be transacted at their office location on Second Ave SE in Dauphin. Complete ticket information is available by calling 1-888-459-2010.
