Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - Brandon Wheat King season ticket sales have been strong.
The sales surge was thanks to their annual "Seat Moving Day" at the Keystone Centre Tuesday.
The Wheat Kings announced a total of 1,850 season tickets, including five hundred in the past week, have been sold for the 2018-19 campaign.
"We're excited by our numbers coming out of this summer's early bird deadline," says Matt McNish, the Wheat Kings Director of Marketing and Ticket Sales.
"Our season ticket holders passionately support this team year after year and are some of the most loyal fans in the WHL," said McNish.
This year's sales numbers are well ahead of last year and represent the second highest number of early bird season tickets in the past seven years.
All fans that have purchased by the Early Bird Deadline will receive a limited edition bobblehead, featuring the likeness of former Wheat King great Ron Hextall.
In addition to the new monthly payment plan, newly introduced child pricing is available.
2018-19 Wheat Kings Season Ticket Prices are now as follows:
- Flex Packs $549
- Adult $475
- Seniors $425
- Youth (13-17) $325
- Children $200
Not only are western Manitoba hockey fans taking advantage of one of the best priced tickets in the WHL, those fans that purchase at least two flex packs or adult season tickets will be offered a 50% discount on all children's season tickets ($99 plus GST).
Brandon will open up camp in August with twenty players from its playoff roster eligible to make this year's club.
