WINNIPEG, Sept. 9, 2021 - The Winnipeg Jets 2021-22 promotional schedule launches this pre-season with a Celebration of Frontline Workers on Sept. 26 and 29 and Oct. 6 at Canada Life Centre. To show appreciation for the ongoing dedication and commitment of frontline workers who have supported all Manitobans throughout the pandemic, the Jets will celebrate essential workers in-game and provide them with the chance to attend the three pre-season home games through a random draw and with the help of Season Seat Holders.
Winnipeg Jets Celebration of Frontline Workers
The Jets are encouraging Season Seat Holders to donate their pre-season tickets directly to deserving frontline workers whom they know, including healthcare workers, teachers, grocery store workers, truck drivers and more, to recognize the essential services they have provided to our community. Tickets can be forwarded electronically through Winnipeg Jets Accounts on desktop or mobile devices. For full details on transferring tickets, please visit WinnipegJets.com/TICKETCENTRAL/ForwardingYourSeats.
Frontline workers are also encouraged to enter a random draw to win tickets to one of the three pre-season games at WinnipegJets.com/TICKETS/FrontlineWorkers. The deadline to enter for tickets to a certain pre-season game will be five days prior to that game with winners notified by email.
In celebration of Manitoba's frontline workers, the Jets will offer a 25 percent discount on select food and beverage items for the pre-season games.
"This has been an especially tough year and a half for those Manitobans on the frontlines of the pandemic," said Christina Litz, Chief Brand & Commercial Officer, True North Sports + Entertainment. "Now that we are finally coming together to cheer on our team, we could think of no better group to thank and honour than the people who allowed us to get to this point. We know our loyal Season Seat Holders will get behind this special start to our season."
