Vees exhibition and regular season tickets on sale this week

Penticton Vees tickets go on sale Friday for exhibition and regular season

Tickets for Penticton Vees’ exhibition and regular season games go on sale Friday.

The Vees first home exhibition game is Sept. 2. against the West Kelowna Warriors in the South Okanagan Events Centre at 7 p.m. The Vees and Warriors played a thrilling five-game Interior Division playoff series in March and the two will meet Aug. 26 in West Kelowna to open the exhibition schedule.

The Vees then host the Brooks Bandits from the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL), for a pair of games on Sept. 4 at 7 p.m. and Sept. 5 at 6 p.m. The Vees defeated the Bandits in five games to capture the 2012 Doyle Cup. Under head coach Ryan Papaioannou, the Bandits have developed into one of the premier franchises in the AJHL. Papaioannou guided the Bandits to back-to-back AJHL championships in 2012 and 2013 and the 2013 RBC Cup championship. Brooks finished second in the AJHL’s South Division last season and lost out to the Spruce Grove Saints in the Gas Drive Cup Final.

The Vees open the 2015-16 BCHL regular season on Sept. 11 in Salmon Arm. The London Drugs Home opener is Sept. 16 against the Vernon Vipers. The Vees complete regular season schedule is available on their website,
