Canes Update Details for Free Oct. 1 Preseason Game

RALEIGH, NC – Jon Chase, Director of Community Relations and Promotions for the Carolina Hurricanes, today updated details regarding the events and admission for the team’s free preseason game against the Atlanta Thrashers, scheduled for Oct. 1 at 1:30 p.m. at the RBC Center.

Distribution of free general admission tickets for the game began on July 16, and continued over a period of more than two months at events at the RBC Center and other locations. Fans without tickets to Friday’s game will be permitted to line up outside of the Time Warner Cable Box Office at the RBC Center on Friday morning. Hurricanes/RBC Center officials will assess attendance by 1:15 p.m., and then will make a determination on how many of the fans in line will receive free general admission tickets. Admission for those in line is not guaranteed, is subject to availability and will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

Schedule for events/admission for Friday, Oct. 1

11:30 a.m. – Front lawn party begins (inflatables and street hockey)
12:00 p.m. – RBC Center opens for season-ticket holders only
12:30 p.m. – RBC Center opens for all patrons with a ticket
1:00 p.m. – Remaining seating in east and west priority lounges opens to non season-ticket holders
1:15 p.m. – Fans in line without tickets admitted based on availability
1:30 p.m. – Hurricanes vs. Thrashers

Friday’s preseason game against Atlanta will serve as the Hurricanes’ “European sendoff,” and is being played at 1:30 p.m., as the team will depart for St. Petersburg, Russia, following the game. Carolina will play an exhibition game on Oct. 4, against SKA St. Petersburg of the Kontinental Hockey League, before traveling to Helsinki, Finland, for two regular-season games against the Minnesota Wild as a part of the 2010 Compuware NHL Premiere.
