It is recommended that ticket holders for the game be in their seats by 6:45 p.m. to enjoy the pregame entertainment, which includes light up wristbands, player introductions, the national anthems and the first look at the pump-up videos for the new campaign.
Inside the arena, Colorado Sled Hockey will be selling commemorative game programs for $2. The team will keep 100 percent of the proceeds to support their team expenses, including equipment, ice rental and scholarships. Colorado Sled Hockey is a program of Colorado Adaptive Sports Foundation, a signature community partner of Kroenke Sports Charities.
There will also be a clear-out sale hosted by Kroenke Sports Charities outside of section 140 on the main concourse. This sale is an opportunity for fans to purchase Avalanche memorabilia ranging from signed pucks to jerseys to artwork. Prices start at $1 and proceeds will benefit the community programs of the Avalanche, supported by KSC.
Once the puck drops inside Pepsi Center, the Avalanche will provide an exclusive opportunity for those that do not have a ticket to the game. Fans are invited to watch it with a viewing party outside the building on giant screens and those planning on attending the viewing party are encouraged to bring their own folding chairs.
