Young Stars single and double header tickets available sooner

Demand had resulted in single and double header tickets for the Young Stars Classic two weeks earlier

Overwhelming demand for Vancouver Canucks Young Stars Classic tickets has resulted in single and double header tickets being made available earlier.

Tickets were scheduled to be available to be bought in two weeks, but will now go on sale July 30 at 10 a.m.

“The demand for the tickets has definitely been the highest that we’ve had since we started the tournament in 2010,” said director of marketing for Spectra Venue Management Carla Seddon on July 10 when tickets were first made available to the general public. “We’re excited. There is a lot of talent coming here. It’s going to be a great tournament this year.”

All available six-game ticket packages have sold out for the Classic set to start Sept. 11 at the South Okanagan Events Centre. The Classic is highlighted by Edmonton Oilers prospect Connor McDavid. Other prospects being featured are Leon Draisaitl and Darnell Nurse of the Oilers, as well as Canucks prospects Jake Virtanen, Jared McCann, Hunter Shinkaruk and Brendan Gaunce. From the Calgary Flames it will be Sam Bennett, Emile Poirier and Morgan Klimchuk. And from the Winnipeg Jets it will be Nikolaj Ehlers and Josh Morrissey.

Over the past four Young Star Classics, over 80 players have gone on to play NHL games. Complete rosters will be released at a later date.

This family friendly, four-day classic also features a Minor Hockey Day on Sept. 13 including a Party on the Plaza with games, music, and prize giveaways.

Single tickets are being sold for $15*, while double header’s are $25*. The SOEC has a limited number of luxury suite rentals available during the Canucks Young Stars Classic. Inquiries may be made through SOEC-premiumseating@penticton.ca Tickets can be purchased at www.ValleyFirstTix.com, by telephone 1.877.SOEC.TIX (763.2849) or in-person at the Valley First Box Office (at the SOEC) and Wine Country Visitor Centre.
