The Season of Champions is making its first appearance in Cranbrook with the 2011 Canada Cup, November 30 – December 4 at the Rec Plex. Today, the Host Committee announced full event ticket packages will go on sale February 21, with an innovative new option!
In addition to the “Old Classic” full event pass – for the hard-core enthusiasts who want to be there for all 13 draws – the 2011 Canada Cup features two “Double Impact” packages that allow fans to double up on the draws that work best for their own schedule.
- The Nite Owl: Two tickets to the weekday evening and all weekend draws – $249
- The Champ: Two tickets to all draws Friday through Sunday – $249
- The Old Classic: Same seat for all 13 draws – $219
Ticket packages can be purchased by phone at 250-426-SEAT or 866-580-SEAT, online at seasonofchampions.ca or in person at the Cranbrook Rec Plex Box Office (Monday to Friday 10am to 6pm / Saturday 1pm to 6pm).
The Canada Cup features an elite field of the best teams in the country – seven men’s and seven women’s. It’s like a Scotties and Brier wrapped up in one exciting package. And, the stakes are high… the two winners take the first berths in the 2013 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings – the Canadian Curling Trials.
All full event passes include unlimited access to Keith’s Patch – the heartbeat of the party, all day every day. The Patch is where fans and competitors alike gather to enjoy an appetizing array of food and beverages… and dance to the sounds of some amazing Canadian bands. It’s also the home of Cool Curling – the tabletop version of the roaring game where fans play for the chance to win cash!
On top of all that, there are all kinds of opportunities to meet the athletes, starting with the exclusive Fan Appreciation Night, Tuesday, November 29 – a special meet and greet gathering with the teams. The competitors will also be involved in Team Autograph sessions and Up Close and Personal interviews, featuring candid discussions with players from past and present.
“There are just so many advantages to the full event pass,” said Co Chair Colin Campbell. “It’s definitely the best way to experience the excitement of championship curling… we’re advising fans to get their seats soon!”
Along with the ticket launch, the Host Committee also announced the opening of the event office – 100 B Cranbrook St. N., Cranbrook, BC, V1C 3P9 – and the call for volunteers. The volunteer application form will be available online starting February 21 at www.seasonofchampions.ca
