With the countdown to the 2014-15 NHL season ticking away, the Winnipeg Jets want to get fans ready with an inaugural Fan Fest.
The hockey club will host the outdoor event on Saturday, September 20 at MTS Iceplex.
The event includes access to Jets training camp sessions, live player and management interviews as well as a range of interactive games and activities. The first 5,000 fans on site will receive a free complimentary lunch.
In addition, the first 3,000 fans will have the opportunity to watch one of four Winnipeg Jets training camp sessions beginning at 9 a.m. with additional ice times commencing at 9:50 a.m., 12:00 p.m. and 12:50 p.m. Admission to these sessions is limited to available seating on a first-come, first-served basis. Fans that do not get into one session will be able to line up for the ensuing one.
Fan Fest will run from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. and is open and free to the general public. Free parking is available throughout the day to the north of the MTS Iceplex in the adjacent Assiniboia Downs lot.
