Press Release

 SASKATOON – Two-game mini-packs for the 2013 MasterCard Memorial Cup go on sale this week, the host committee announced Monday.

These ticket packages feature games on back-to-back nights and allow fans to see all four teams – the host Saskatoon Blades, plus representatives of the WHL, OHL and QMJHL. A two-game playoff package is also available for the event which runs from May 16-26.

Preliminary-round mini-packs start at $59, and the playoff packages start at $89 (plus applicable taxes and fees).

“Following the strong response to our initial ticket campaign, we are pleased to offer fans more options to experience the best junior hockey in North America,” said Jack Brodsky, co-chair of the 2013 MasterCard Memorial Cup. “These smaller packages enable fans to see each of the four teams play, and because the games are on consecutive nights, they are a convenient and affordable option for out-of-town fans.”

Starting Jan. 14, mini-packs will be available to Blades season-ticket holders, anyone who has already purchased a full package, and sponsors. Ticket packages will then be offered to the public starting on Jan. 18 at 10am.

Please see below schedule for a list of games in each mini-pack.

Full-event packages are also still available for fans who want to see every check, shot and goal of the 2013 MasterCard Memorial Cup. Purchase your tickets online at Ticketmaster.ca or by phone at (306) 938-7800

or 1-800-970-SEAT (7328). Event details are available at www.mastercardmemorialcup.ca
