The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced Tuesday that it will hold its annual “Burgundy/White Game” at Cadet Ice Arena on the grounds of the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo. on September 16 at 11:00 a.m.
The previous seven Burgundy/White games have generated in excess of $400,000 for various charitable causes throughout Colorado. Proceeds from this year’s game will benefit military families and initiatives of the Colorado Avalanche Youth Hockey program.
“We’re honored to be associated with the Air Force Academy for a great cause,” said Avalanche Executive Vice President and General Manager Francois Giguere. “Colorado Springs has always been a strong base of support for us going back to our early days in Colorado. This event will allow our fans in the area to see all of our players in action.”
The Burgundy/White Game features all Avalanche players in a three-period, intra-squad scrimmage. Fans in attendance will also have the opportunity to watch a shootout at the end of regulation regardless of the score.
Tickets for the game go on sale beginning on Monday, Aug. 20, at 9:00 a.m. and are available for purchase through the Air Force Academy box office. Prices range from $12-20 for the game.
