Vees Nation wants you: Save your seat for every home game!

Season memberships give you regular season and playoff seats, plus lots of perks

The Penticton Vees’ training camp hit the ice last week, which can only mean one thing: Hockey season is just around the corner.

Do you have your tickets yet?

Or perhaps the better question, do you have your membership?

“We call it a membership because we want our fans to feel like they’re part of the team,” says Laura Carleton, the Vees’ Director of Ticketing & Merchandise. “Players, staff, fans – we’re all part of the Penticton Vees team.”

While the players are practicing every day, off-ice personnel are also busy preparing for the season, which opens on the road Sept. 6 in Trail. By the time the home opener heats up the South Okanagan Events Centre Sept. 27, when the local squad takes on West Kelowna, local fans will be ready for their season of Junior A hockey.

“We have fantastic fans in Penticton – we’ve broken the CJHL’s attendance record of an average of over 3,000 fans per home games for the past two years,” Carleton notes.

And there’s some real benefits to that membership, too. Here’s a look at what it includes:

Significant savings: Season memberships will not only save you 40 to 50 per cent off the price of walk-up tickets, your seat is also guaranteed right through a potential 16-game playoff run – and with the Vees’ post-season record, you know you’ll want to secure that in advance! “This way, you don’t need to worry – you know your seats are secure,” Carleton says. For any games that aren’t played, you’ll receive a credit.

Memberships range from $28 per month to $32 per month, depending on the section, and a payment plan is available.

Share the love: Because a hockey game is always better when shared, Vees members can pick up a “Bring a Friend Pass” for just $5.

Perfect perks for the fan: To show their appreciation for all their season members, the Vees will highlight a member of the month, and offer a special Vees jacket that’s only for season membership holders – a great way to show your colours at the game and around the community. You’ll also enjoy discount days in the Vees’ Blue Zone merchandise shop.

Ready to join VeesNation? To view available seats or for more information, contact Laura Carleton 250-493-8337, ext. 4, or email lauracarleton@shaw.ca.

And to get a taste of the season to come, check out the three remaining pre-season home games: Wednesday, Aug. 28 against the West Kelowna, and Aug. 30 and 31 against Brooks, all at the South Okanagan Events Centre.
