RBC Cup 2010 gaining momentum

Press Release

DAUPHIN – The clock is ticking…..The 2009-10 RBC Cup in Dauphin is gaining momentum.

Junior A fans will be pleased to know that tickets are now on sale for the prestigious event being held here May 1-9, 2010.

Dauphin Kings are already guaranteed a spot in the tourney, by virtue of hosting the event. This fact alone should generate huge interest in the event.

According to Pete Conway, Ticketing Chairperson for RBC 2010, the home-opening weekend for the Dauphin Kings was also the official launch for RBC Cup general ticket package sales.

“Early-bird sales during the spring and summer resulted in over 250 packages being sold to local hockey fans” stated Pete Conway, ticketing chairperson of the RBC ’10.

“We were pleased with the early sales and are now launching our Fall Ticket Campaign”.

The RBC Ticket Committee was out in force during the King’s opening games and was pleased to have the RBC Cup trophy on display. In addition to displaying the trophy, emblematic of Junior Hockey supremacy in Canada the committee was on hand to promote ticket sales and provide information about ticket packages for the upcoming event.

Conway was pleased with the fans’ response, and has indicated that upwards of 50 ticket packages have been sold since the start of ticket sales last week. “Now that hockey season is back we’re gearing up for a run on tickets” stated Conway. “We want to let people know that tickets in all sections are still available, but sales are heating up and we wouldn’t want anyone to be disappointed by waiting too long to purchase their tickets.”

Tickets are available for $240 (plus fees and taxes) for regular seats and $270 (plus fees/taxes) for club seats. A VIP feature which includes benefits like “front of the line” service and VIP Lounge access is available for an additional $160 – and can be added to either a regular or club seat ticket package.
