The Regina Pats continue to plan for what they hope will be a fantastic Family Day weekend in February when they play host to an alumni game featuring some of the best to have played in the WHL followed by a present-day matchup between themselves and the Moose Jaw Warriors.
On Tuesday, the team made some announcements regarding that game and the 100th Mastercard Memorial Cup which the team will host in May.
The outdoor games will be the first to be held in Saskatchewan with prices ranging from $75 to 275 for the two games that will be played.
Pats owner Anthony Marquart also announced 10000 packages have already been sold to season ticket holders and corporate sponsors, and that those buying tickets for the event will be first in line to get tickets for a major concert which will happen on May 17 just before Canada’s junior hockey championship begins.
“That will be announced on December 4th. It’s widespread to be enjoyed by all generations,” said Marquart, “We’re excited we can bring this to Regina. This is our first concert in terms of promoting and bringing something on behalf of Queen City Sports and Regina.”
When asked if the headline performer at the concert specialized in country, pop or rock, Marquart would not answer, but he would say the act was on the level of The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, and AC-DC.
