The Rochester Americans announced on Thursday that the home opener for the 2009/2010 season will take place on Saturday October 3rd, 2009 at Blue Cross Arena.Â The Amerks will be entering their 54th season and second as the sole affiliate of the Florida Panthers.
That’s right, only about four and a half months until the next season begins.
The other four dates already set in stone for next season are:
Friday November 6th and 20th
Friday December 11th
Saturday December 26th
The day after Christmas is typically one of the more well attended games each season, assuming the on ice team is better than last year and the game being on a Saturday will produce a larger than usual crowd.
These dates are great, but it’ll be tough selling any of these to many fans until after fans get to see what kind of team is assembled through free agency starting on July 1st.
The deadline for “Early Eagle” pricing was extended to June 1st, so if you’re looking to save money head down to the arena and put down a deposit for season tickets.
The Amerksâ€™ â€œEarly Eagleâ€ pricing deadline for the 2009-10 season is now good until Monday, June 1st.Â The new payment plan will allow fans to reserve a season ticket for as low as a $50 deposit and five easy payments of $23. Further, the Amerksâ€™ 54th season will include a new 12-game pack to go along with the full-season option, Freedom Pack and 10-game pack. The full season prices range from $200 to $550 for the â€œEarly Eagleâ€ special. By taking advantage of the offer, fans can save up to $290 off game-day pricing.
