DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings have teamed up with Coke Zero and Kroger to present the 2015 edition of Coke Zero Fan Day at Joe Louis Arena, scheduled to take place on Thursday, March 5 from 6:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

In order to obtain tickets to this fun-filled, free event, citizens of Hockeytown must attend an upcoming Detroit Red Wings Experience Day, presented by Coke Zero, which gives fans a chance to test their skills at various interactive hockey games and take photos with player cut-outs. Red Wings Alumni Association members Larry Murphy and Darren McCarty will be in attendance to sign autographs at upcoming Detroit Red Wings Experience Days.

This year’s Coke Zero Fan Day provides a behind-the-scenes look at Joe Louis Arena with several unique photo opportunities for fans, such as a chance to take a photo with Nick Lidstrom’s recently-retired jersey banner and Al Sobotka’s famed Zamboni. Locker room tours will also be available to fans in attendance.

Members of the Red Wings Alumni Association will also be on hand to sign autographs. In addition, hockey fans who bring their ice skates will have an opportunity to skate on the ice at Joe Louis Arena, as well as enjoy multiple interactive hockey zones and a wide variety of prizes and promotions for fans of all ages.
