What to Know Ahead of 2021-22 Opening Night

by Colorado Avalanche @Avalanche /

There will be many activities for fans to participate in when the Colorado Avalanche opens the 2021-22 season against the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday at 8 p.m. MT at Ball Arena.

Beginning at 5:30 p.m., the Avs will have pregame activities on the plaza outside of the Grand Atrium, including a pregame DJ, an appearance by the Celly Squad Drumline and photo opportunities.

To celebrate opening night, Avs Faithful is encouraged to show support for the Avs by decking out in Avs gear the day of the game. Fans can share photo of themselves with friends and family using #AvsAroundTown. As part of the Avs Around Town promotion, Bernie will be around Denver to surprise fans and thank them for their support!

Ball Arena doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and fans are encouraged to be in their seats early to ensure they don't miss pregame ceremonies, player introductions and hype videos.

Inside the arena, there will 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.

In addition, the jerseys that the Avalanche wears for the contest against the Blackhawks will be auctioned off later this month. All auction information can be found online at
