Stingrays Announce 2018-19 Promotional Schedule
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. - The South Carolina Stingrays have unveiled their promotional schedule for the upcoming 2018-19 season highlighted by a mix of old favorites and new additions.
Tickets for groups of 10 or more start at just $12 and can be ordered through the Stingrays office today by calling 843-744-2248.
In addition to all of the team's special theme nights, all weekday home games will feature a Stingrays Happy Hour which includes $2 beers from 6-8 p.m. and all Sunday home games will begin at the family-friendly time of 3:05 p.m. presented by Crews Subaru and Charleston County Parks.
The excitement kicks off with Opening Night on Oct. 20 when the team will celebrate the first championship in franchise history for their NHL affiliate, the Washington Capitals, with special events and opportunities to take a photo with the Stanley Cup®. More details about the team's plans for opening night, which will be presented by STASH Storage, will be announced soon.
Star Wars Night presented by Jeff Cook Real Estate, which was initially scheduled for Feb. 16, will now take place on Feb. 23 vs. Florida at 7:05 p.m.
South Carolina will wear a total of six specialty uniforms throughout the season on some of their most anticipated nights including Marvel Super Hero Night, Nickelodeon Night, Military Appreciation Night, Star Wars Night, Pink In The Rink Night and Nick Jr. Day.
"Every year we review our promotional schedule and try to get more creative," said Stingrays President Rob Concannon. "Having the Stanley Cup® here opening night along with the Rocket Richard Trophy, Prince of Wales Trophy and the Conn Smythe Trophy will help ring in the 2018-19 season. This year we will also have our annual Military Appreciation Night and Pink in the Rink game. Preston Hayden and the rest of the staff did a great job.
"We have a few other themed jersey nights like the Paw Patrol, Star Wars, Black Panther, and Double Dare, and there will also be three chances to skate with the Rays after our Sunday games. We will have a special Hershey Bears themed jersey throughout the season along with plenty of other exciting promotions!"
