Ahl Outdoor Classic - Day Tickets
Details of Ahl Outdoor Classic - Day and the Ticket Luck value
AHL Outdoor Classic is among the most anticipated series of hockey games held outdoors that are the parallel of NHL's Heritage Classic and Winter Classic, where each pits a couple regional rivals against one another. Since the AHL is primarily based in cities with minor leagues, the stadiums are not quite as large as those used in the Winter Classics. All Outdoor Classics to date have featured two teams from neighbor cities or teams connected through nearby regions.
The first ever series was held in 2010, when the beginning two games were hosted in the third week of February, which coincided with the awaited Hockey Weekend Across America. Later versions of the event have had to share rinks with NHL's Winter Classic, having been scheduled at the start of January. AHL Outdoor Classic tickets are among the most sought after treat among hockey fans to crave watching the game outdoors for a change.
The first ever AHL Outdoor Classic was held in 2010 when it was titled the Mirabito Outdoor Classic, and marked the first time a game was played outdoors in the seventy-four years long history of AHL, while also marking the first ever minor league outdoor game. It was played in Syracuse at New York State Fairgrounds, where it was put on by Syracuse Crunch. The game was held on a Saturday in February, when the Crunch defeated the Binghamton Senators with a score of two to one. The event also set an attendance record in AHL, where more than twenty-one thousand, five hundred people were present.
In 2011, the series was titled Whale Bowl, featuring the rechristened Connecticut Whales and Providence Bruins in East Hartford at Rentschler Field. The game took place just a day before the celebrations of the national Hockey Day and NHL's Heritage Classic, and was held as part of America's hockey weekend. The event sold more than twenty-one thousand, six hundred tickets though less than sixteen thousand fans were able to make it there due to adverse weather.
For 2012, AHL Outdoor Classic scheduled two games, one in the USA and the other in Canada, which was a first. The two-part series was begun in January in Philadelphia at the spacious Citizens Bank Park, between Adirondack Phantoms and Hershey Bears. The event took place alongside the NHL Winter Classic that took place at the same location only four days earlier.
This game made an all new record of more than forty-five thousand attendees, which was more than twice that of 2010. The other outdoor game held in Canada, featured Hamilton Bulldogs against Toronto Marlies, recording a crowd of more than twenty thousand fans. The upcoming Outdoor Classics are expected to bring even more fans packed together roaring in unanimity, so grab some cheap AHL Outdoor Classic tickets and be part of the grand event.
