Chiefs reveal ticket numbers

Chilliwack Chiefs
BCHL

The Chilliwack Chiefs rolled out their ticket prices Tuesday morning, promising excellent entertainment at affordable prices.

“We want to attract a lot of people into the building,” said newly minted president Glen Ringdal as he revealed the numbers. “Price is a very important part of that and we are really focused on families and young people.”

Indeed, the cost to the local fan will be considerably less than it was with the Western Hockey League, with an adult season-ticket package going for $279 and single game tickets costing $11.

The cost for seniors is $229 for the season and $9 for a game.

Students between the ages of 10-18 pay $169 for the season and $7 for a game.

Children between the ages of  3-9 pay $99 for a season and $5 for a game.

The team has family packages as well.

“We know that we’re going to grow our fans of the future by getting them involved when they’re young, and we’ve set prices that we hope will do exactly that,” Ringdal noted. “We’re going to have a family section in the rink, and that’s where the family packages come in.”

One adult and one child will be able to take in 30 home games for $299 or one game for $15.

Two adults and two children can get the season for $598 or one game for $30.

Those who had season tickets previously with the Bruins, and even the previous version of the Chiefs, will be receiving an email from the new team.

“In our business, season ticket holders are the lifeblood, and we think we’ve set prices that are competitive in the BCHL and in the marketplace,” Ringdal said. “And we’ll be letting them know that if they had season tickets and they liked their seats, they can grab them right now. We want to respect those people who have supported Chilliwack hockey in the past.”

On the ice, head coach and general manager Harvey Smyl said the team will be running an evaluation camp Aug. 15 for players at the peewee, bantam and midget levels.

A two-day rookie camp will run Aug. 22-23 followed immediately by main camp and the exhibition schedule.

The team’s website is now up and running at www.chilliwackchiefs.net.

The Chiefs can be reached by phone at 604-392-4433.
