OTTAWA – The Ottawa Senators (@Senators) announced today that the team’s annual Fan Fest will return to Canadian Tire Centre (@CdnTireCtr) on Sunday, Sept. 25. The signature fan-friendly pre-season event at Canadian Tire Centre will feature a Senators’ intra-squad game, autograph sessions, team practices, interactive games, fan press conferences and entertainment throughout the arena. This event provides fans with their first chance to see the 2016-17 Senators competing on the ice.
General admission tickets, which will include access to each of the event’s components for Fan Fest, will go on sale beginning at 10 a.m. today. Senators long time partner Canadian Tire will also hold an exclusive pre-season promotion that will include a free Fan Fest ticket to receive entry to the event and a limited edition Fan Fest bobblehead with every purchase of a pre-season ticket made at participating area Canadian Tire locations.
The first 7,500 fans to purchase an event ticket will receive a Craig Anderson bobblehead on-site. During Fan Fest several additional limited edition bobbleheads will be unveiled to fans just after 9 a.m. as part of the club’s 25th anniversary celebrations which will begin in January of 2017. These bobbleheads will be part of the 25-piece set that be available to fans at games during the 2017 anniversary celebrations.
Advance tickets to Fan Fest are $10 including taxes, but exclude CRF and convenience fees. Tickets will be available on-site for $15, which include taxes, CRF and convenience fees. Senators’ season-seat members can purchase tickets for $7.50 (includes taxes, but excludes CRF and convenience fees) through their Senators online account or by contacting their account manager. Due to the limited availability of bobbleheads, fans are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance of the event by visiting ottawasenators.com/tickets or at participating Canadian Tire stores.
Interactive components from the Sens Street Tour will be available to fans as Fan Fest begins outdoors on the Gate 1 plaza at 9 a.m. with an official welcome ceremony. Entertainers, including balloonists and face-painters, will also welcome fans to Canadian Tire Centre.
Fans will also have the opportunity to watch the Senators participate in an intra-squad game and practice, while players and alumni will also participate in fan press conferences and autograph sessions throughout the day.
Free parking will be available throughout the day at Canadian Tire Centre. Festivities will conclude at approximately 5 p.m.
More information will be made available on the Senators website and social channels as Fan Fest approaches.
Tickets to Fan Fest, opening night or five-game pick ‘em packs go on sale at 10 a.m. Please visit ottawasenators.com/tickets or call Ticketmaster at 1-877-788-FANS to purchase.
