July 3, 2019 - Western Hockey League (WHL) - Victoria Royals News Release

Victoria, BC - The Victoria Royals today announced the release of their promotional dates and three unique ticket packages that will give fans multiple ways to experience a variety of popular home games during the 2019-20 WHL Regular Season.

The Royals' promotional dates offer fans the opportunity to attend 23 of the most exciting games of the season. Included as part of these promotional dates are some of the team's biggest and most popular special event nights in the Home Opener, Teddy Bear Toss and Pink in the Rink.

Victoria's Home Opener, on September 27th vs. the Prince George Cougars, will welcome fans back to the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre to officially kick-off the club's ninth season in the WHL.

The Royals' annual Teddy Bear Toss is a fan favorite holiday tradition that will take place on Saturday, December 7th. Fans in attendance are encouraged to bring their new or gently used stuffed toys to the game and toss them onto the ice when Victoria scores their first goal. All the stuffed toys are then cleaned and delivered to local charities ahead of the Christmas holidays.

For the ninth consecutive season, the Royals' Pink in the Rink game on Saturday, February 22nd is dedicated to the support of those affected by cancer and the fundraising of cancer research. The team will wear special edition pink themed jerseys that will be auctioned off with all proceeds going towards the BC Cancer Foundation.

To celebrate the release of their 23 promotional dates the Royals have also announced the return of two popular ticket packs for fans looking to save money and attend multiple games this season.
