Innovation Credit Union Pack the Plex Night Fast Approaching

Innovation Credit Union and the Swift Current Broncos are inviting everyone in the Southwest to “Pack the Plex Night” this Friday as the Broncos entertain the Moose Jaw Warriors.

The Broncos are looking to set a new attendance mark in the newly renovated facility. The largest crowd of the season to date was 2,487 which was set this past Friday against the Kelowna Rockets.

The night will feature pre-game ceremonies with dignitaries from the City of Swift Current, Innovation Credit Union, the Western Hockey League and the Swift Current Broncos, along with a ceremonial puck drop.

Pre-game ceremonies start at 7:25 pm while puck drop is at 7:30 pm.

Innovation Credit Union will be giving away “A-Buck-A-Seat” based on the number of tickets sold. If all the seats are sold one lucky fan will win $2,865.00. Check out www.scbroncos.com for the daily updated ticket sale totals.

“Outta Bounds”, two local singers, will also be performing live before the game starting at 6:30 pm and during the 1st and 2nd intermissions.
