The 26-game plan covers more than half of the Hurricanes’ home schedule, including Opening Night against the Philadelphia Flyers and the New Year’s Eve match-up with the New York Rangers. Of the 26 games in the plan, 23 fall between Thursday and Sunday, and the plan includes popular selections like the team’s game on the day after Thanksgiving against Atlanta and a day-after-Christmas showdown with the Flyers. Six games against Western Conference opponents are included in the 26-game package, including a Friday night match-up with Colorado and a Saturday night game against Chicago. The plan also includes both of the Hurricanes’ home games against the Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins and Eastern Conference rivals Buffalo, Philadelphia, New Jersey and Toronto. Fans who purchase the 26-game plan will also receive three complimentary game vouchers, which may be redeemed for three additional games of their choice at the Time Warner Cable Box Office in the RBC Center.
Of the three 12-game plans available for purchase, the Red Plan features the most weekend games, with 10 of the 12 games falling on Saturday or Sunday, including eight Saturday night games. The Red Plan also features the game versus Philadelphia on the day after Christmas, and Western Conference match-ups with Chicago, San Jose and Vancouver. All three 12-game packages include two complimentary game vouchers.
The Black Plan offers fans nine weekend games, including the Opening Night game against the Flyers and the team’s traditional New Year’s Eve game, this year featuring the New York Rangers. The Black Plan also includes a March showdown with Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh and Western Conference match-ups with Colorado and Minnesota.
The White Plan features all weeknight games, with 12 games against 12 different teams. It includes an October contest against Pittsburgh, and Western Conference tilts against St. Louis, Dallas and the Los Angeles Kings, featuring former Hurricane Justin Williams. The plan concludes with the final home game of the regular season against Montreal – the annual Fan Appreciation Game.
Mini-season ticket plans provide fans with many of the same advantages of full-season ticket plans, including a discount off the gate ticket price, the chance to purchase game tickets before they go on sale to the general public and priority status for ticket packages for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Mini-plan holders also have access to the Ticket Exchange Program, which allows fans to exchange unused plan tickets on one of the team’s 12 pre-selected exchange game nights.
