Amerks Select-A-Seat Event on Saturday with Free Ice Cream

If you’re a Rochester Americans fan and don’t have season tickets or at least a 10 or 20 game package let me ask you, why?  You can’t go wrong at $10 a game for a season ticket.  Back to the topic, individual game tickets go on sale this Saturday at 10am and Blue Cross Arena will be open to walk in and select a seat.  Ticket sales reps will also be available to answer any questions.  And free ice cream?  That should win you over!  Stop down and check it out (even if you already have tickets).

The season opens on October 13th and based on what we’ve seen out of the prospects in the Traverse City Tournament it should start off pretty well.

Here’s the details:

Fans are invited to attend a “Select-A-Seat” event at The Blue Cross Arena on Saturday, Sept. 17 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to coincide with the launch of individual game ticket sales.  Those in attendance will have the chance to check out available seats, survey the sightlines, meet with Amerks ticket sales associates to ask any questions they may have and purchase individual tickets or packages.  LuGia’s on Wheels Ice Cream Truck will be stationed outside The Blue Cross Arena to provide complimentary ice cream for Amerks fans from noon to 2 p.m.

In addition to $11 (upper end/balcony seats) and $12 tickets (lower/upper bowl) at the 2011-12 Home Opener, the Oct. 13 game will also feature special events as fans will be introduced to Amerks of the past and present.  Members of the Amerks Alumni are being invited to attend the game and will take part in a red carpet event at The Blue Cross Arena and will be recognized on the ice prior to the game.  More details on the opening night festivities will be announced at a later date.

Aside from the special pricing for the Home Opener, individual game tickets for the 2011-12 season will vary based on day of the week and seating level.  For all weekday games (Tuesday through Thursday), lower bowl tickets can be purchased for $16, upper bowl tickets are $14 and upper end/balcony seats are available for $11.  For all weekend games (Friday through Sunday), lower bowl seats are available for $18, upper bowl seats are $16 and upper end/balcony tickets can be purchased for $12.
