12,000+ EXPECTED FOR RUSH-SWARM ON SATURDAY
This game the Saskatchewan Rush are honouring the First Nations on Saturday night with a pre-game gift ceremony featuring Tribal Chiefs, Lyle, Miles and Jeremy Thompson as well as other members of the Georgia Swarm, Randy Staats and Johnny Powless. At halftime we have a special performance by Indigenous Ensemble; a group of grade 7-12 students who have put together an Intertribal Performance and Round Dance for all the fans.
The Saskatoon Tribal Council is providing Thunder Sticks to 1600 fans to ensure the SaskTel Centre is the loudest building in the NLL. Wheaton GM has provided free kids tickets again for this game, and they are also providing player cutouts for the first 250 kids in the door. CO-OP is also distributing hard tickets for this game that can be treated as normal and used at any entrance of SaskTel Centre.
This game will have a near capacity crowd of 12,000+ fans in attendance and the following is strongly encouraged:
COME EARLY: Doors & Original 16 Founders’ Lounge at open at 6:00pm. Game time is 7:30pm
CARPOOL: Arrive with family or friends to reduce traffic congestion.
FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS OF PARKING ATTENDANTS & POLICE ON-SITE: Faster and safer exit from the parking lots.
STAY LATE: Post-game there will be an autograph session, Original 16 Founders’ Lounge is open with live entertainment. Remaining in the venue even for just 15 minutes will greatly reduce the traffic congestion.
