Surrey Eagles can’t wait for BCHL season to start

Junior A team is putting the fans first

The Surrey Eagles feel they owe something to their fans after last year. With the new season set to start, they are ready to deliver.

Eagles Director of Media and Public Events Cole Marton can’t wait for the Sept. 13 home opener against the Coquitlam Express. Game time is 7 p.m. at South Surrey Arena.

The club is rallying around a new coach, a new philosophy, and a new commitment to the community and the fan experience.

“We’re going to rebound after a season that wasn’t up to our standards,” Marton said.

New head coach Cam Keith has been given the green light to build an exciting team, and he went straight to work recruiting a boatload of fast, skilled, smart young players.

“The biggest key that Cam always brings up is the mental side, the hockey IQ,” Marton said. “Being a good kid, and being able to think the game at a high level—that is going to be this team’s identity.”

The Eagles start their season on the road with two games in Prince George. With the first regular season games behind them, they’ll come home to face Coquitlam, and they’ll have payback on their minds—the Express “just laid a pretty large beatdown on us” in a pre-season game, Marton said.

The recipe is there for great hockey, and the Eagles want to match that excitement with the best fan experience in the league.

And nothing rocks the rink like stands full of fans. Season tickets are available, and on top of the $250 saving on ticket prices, season ticket holders get a 20 per cent discount on Eagles merchandise, an invitation to an exclusive season ticket holders party, and special gifts.

“When you sit with the same group of people every game, your neighbours become friends, and fans become family. That’s the season ticket experience,” Marton said. And the whole club, from the front office to the players, will be a part of that.

“People love coming to our games when they can feel they are a part of what we’re building,” he said. “And so this year we really want to engage in the community as much as we can.”

Single game tickets are a great way to see the game. Bring the whole family: adult tickets are just $15, students and seniors get in for $10, youth aged 6 to 12 are $5, and kids five years old and under are free. Or get the Famoso 4-pack: four tickets plus a $25 gift card to Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria, all for $40.

So drop the puck already!

“It’s the start of a new era for Eagles hockey,” Marton said. “We’re going to have a lot of fun as we enter a new age and get back to that championship pedigree that we’re known for.”

 

The Junior A Surrey Eagles are excited for the coming season and want to build on that with the best fan experience in the league.
