Vees making offer for youth

A new season ticket incentive has been launched by the Penticton Vees for children and youth in the South Okanagan.

A new season ticket incentive has been launched by the Penticton Vees for children and youth in the South Okanagan. Vees president Fred Harbinson said it’s important to get younger fans interested in the team.

“We have received a tremendous amount of interest from families outside of minor hockey and we want to make watching Vees hockey as affordable as possible,” said Harbinson. “We need to grow the game and this is one step in getting younger people engaged with our sport.”

The new promotion allows children and youth aged four to 17 to receive a free season’s pass if their parent/guardian buys one of the three season ticket packages for the 2013-2014 season (single-parent families only need to buy a season ticket. Children three and under are free).

The Vees have introduced three pricing levels, with fans having the option to buy a $149, $169 or a $199 package for the 2013-2014 season. The three pricing levels are based on designated sections in the South Okanagan Events Centre. Families have until Aug. 26 to take advantage of this incentive. After that, season ticket pricing reverts back to regular pricing levels from the 2012-2013 season.

The Vees also introduced a payment plan for would-be season ticket buyers. A 25 per cent deposit is required upon submitting your season ticket application. However, fans have the option to pay the remaining balance of their season ticket over three equal payments. To qualify for the payment plan for this new ticket initiative, parents must purchase their season tickets by Aug. 26.

For more information on this ticket program, contact the Vees season ticket hotline at 250-809-1390 or email fraserrodgers@gmail.com
