The Regina Pats 2018 Mastercard Memorial Cup Host Organizing Committee, together with the Canadian Hockey League, is pleased to announce that ticket packages for the 100th anniversary Mastercard Memorial Cup championship will be made available for sale to Regina Pats season-ticket holders January 18, 2018.
“We’re thrilled to announce this ticket offering,” says Shaun Semple, President and CEO of the Brandt Group of Companies and chair of the Host Organizing Committee. “Our plans for the Mastercard Memorial Cup event will make the 100th anniversary edition unique in the history of the championship and we’re very proud that it all happens right here in Regina; Canada’s hockey capital!”
Ticket packages for the ten-day event will include eight guaranteed games (plus a tie-breaker if needed), with season-ticket holder pricing set at $695.00 for Centennial-level seating and $645.00 for Festival-level seating. Regina Pats season-ticket holders will also enjoy an exclusive ticket presale opportunity from January 18-26. Season Ticket holders are not guaranteed their current seat but the Host Committee in conjunction with the Regina Pats will do all they can to limit seat relocation.
Season ticket holders will be able to purchase their tickets by logging in to their season ticket AccountManager at www.reginapats.com/accountmanager. Clients can login to their account and purchase tournament packages by clicking the ‘New Invoice’ link in the section labeled ‘Memorial Cup Tournament PKG’. This links to the package available and the payment options which include a payment plan extending to April 15, 2018.
Following presale, tickets will be released to the general public on January 30. Non-season-ticket holders interested in reserving ticket packages can do so at www.mastercardmemorialcup.ca, starting January 19th. A four-installment payment plan will be available to all ticket package purchasers. Brandt Centre suite holders will have the opportunity to reserve their suites by contacting Evraz Place.
There will be numerous additional entertainment opportunities for fans to enjoy at this unique hockey event.
The Centennial Celebration Zone, located in the EventPlex at Evraz Place, will be open daily in conjunction with Mastercard Memorial Cup game times and will feature full food and beverage services. Daily entertainment will feature bands such as Loverboy, Emerald City Band and Emerson Drive, with more acts and venues to be announced in the coming weeks.
Demand for tickets to the Regina Pats Foundation Honours gala, Mastercard Memorial Cup opening ceremonies and Eagles concert has been strong and the team is anticipating that they will sell out well in advance.
The Pats are anticipating strong demand for ticket packages and are urging hockey fans to act quickly to avoid disappointment. Fans planning to attend this 100th anniversary championship can purchase their packages by visiting mastercardmemorialcup.ca, clicking on ‘Tickets’ and following the purchase instructions.
