The Penticton Vees and Peters Bros Construction have teamed up to offer free single game tickets to students aged 18-years and under. The ticketing partnership will run for the next four years.

Kids aged 18 and under can go to Penticton Vees games for free thanks to Peter’s Bros. Construction.

The Vees and Peter’s Bros. Construction announced a new four-year ticketing partnership Thursday.

“For the past 20 years I have worked in many different cities throughout North America and I must say I have never come across a group as generous as Peter’s Bros Construction,” said Vees president Fred Harbinson in a team statement, adding that the Vees are excited about partnering with such a well-respected company.  “This partnership will create a positive influence on the youth of Penticton and will help create an exciting environment each and every night.”

Starting with this season, admission for single game tickets will be free for students aged 18-years and under. Admission for children aged 12-years and under will also be free as long as they’re accompanied by an adult. Though tickets are free for students and children, they’re still required to pick-up a game ticket at the Valley First Box Office (at the South Okanagan Events Centre) only.

Peter’s Bros Construction is a privately owned and operated premier paving contractor in the Okanagan with its head office in Penticton. While based in the Okanagan, Peter’s Bros Construction performs its work throughout the province and has been recognized by the Ministry of Highways with the first-place award of Excellence in Paving. Peter’s Bros Construction has been a great community partner in Penticton, as they’re a major sponsor of the Peach Festival amongst other community initiatives.

“Our main goal is to work with the Vees in providing a positive entertainment option in a safe environment for our youth,” said Peter’s Brother’s Construction spokesperson, Joe Cuzzocrea. “We’re a big supporter of not only the team but the SOEC as well, so we’re very excited about this new partnership.”

Single game tickets will be available to the public as of Thursday at 10 a.m. leading up to the Vees home opener Oct. 3 against Salmon Arm. Single game ticket prices remain unchanged from last season, as adults are $13 and seniors are $11; however, to alleviate pressure and long line-ups, the Vees will be implementing new game day walk-up ticket prices. On game days, adult and senior tickets will be raised by one dollar, making adult tickets $14 and senior tickets $12 each. Fans can purchase single game tickets throughout the week leading up to games at the Valley First Box Office for no additional charge. This new policy doesn’t affect season ticket holders.
