BROOKS, AB (November 23, 2016) – The Brooks Bandits of the Alberta Junior Hockey League are proud to unveil a brand new partnership with TransCanada to provide opportunities for community groups, and Brooks-area residents who otherwise would not be able to, to attend Bandit games.
The new TransCanada Community Zone will span several rows of Section M at the Centennial Regional Arena, with the tickets for those seats provided free-of-charge to a variety of groups, families, and individuals over the course of the remainder of the 2016-17 AJHL season.
Bandit fans will be able to nominate anyone deserving or who would otherwise be unable to afford to go to a game, through a form available on the Bandits website, BrooksBandits.ca, and at the Bandits office at the Centennial Regional Arena.
In addition, the Bandits will be approaching various community organizations throughout both Brooks and the County of Newell to find other deserving groups for a free night at a Bandits game.
The initiative was spearheaded by the Bandits’ desire to make games as accessible as possible to as many people in the region as possible, especially given recent economic and financial pressures.
The team is delighted to have TransCanada partner with the team through its Community Investment program, which will allow for a minimum of 40 tickets to be available at each game for distribution through the new program.
The team will also invite season ticket holders who are unable to use their tickets for any upcoming game to donate them to the program, and the team will do its best to find a deserving recipient for them.
The Bandits’ next home games are this weekend, Friday and Saturday at the CRA as the team hosts the Canmore Eagles on Friday and the Okotoks Oilers on Saturday. Both games begin at 7:00 PM, with tickets available to purchase online at http://tickets.brooksbandits.ca.
