Mooseheads to host an Alumni Game

Press Release

The Mooseheads announced today that they will be hosting the first Halifax Mooseheads Alumni Game on Sunday, August 23rd at 3:30pm at the Halifax Forum when they take on members of the Halifax Regional Police. The Alumni game will take place prior to the Mooseheads Exhibition Home Opener against the PEI Rocket at 6pm. Proceeds from the Alumni game will go towards Feed Nova Scotia and the Diana Thorton Education Fund.

“This will be a fun event for fans of all ages” stated Brian Urquhart, Halifax Mooseheads Vice President Business Operations. “It will be great to see some of the Mooseheads fan favorites of the last 15 seasons back on the ice together”.

“Our involvement with the Halifax Mooseheads goes back to their inaugural year in 1994 through the One on One program,” stated Superintendant Stephen Sykes of the Halifax Regional Police. “We’re very excited to be part of what promises to be a great family and community-focused event. We are not taking this challenge lightly and have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure that we are a formidable opponent.”

A pre-game BBQ will also take place just outside the Forum at 2:30pm with proceeds going to Feed Nova Scotia. Mooseheads players will be on hand at the BBQ to mingle with fans and sign autographs.

Tickets, which include both admission to the Alumni game and the Exhibition game against PEI, are just $7 each. Admission is free for children 12 years of age and under. Fans are also encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to the event in support of Feed Nova Scotia.

Advanced tickets for this event are available starting August 10th at the Antlers Merchandise Store, located across from the Metro Centre’s Ticket Atlantic Box Office. More information on the event will be released on in the coming weeks.
