Ticket Sales Already Surpass All Time Record
Tonight's Cincinnati Cyclones game will break the record for largest hockey crowd in Cincinnati history. The all-time Cincinnati hockey crowd record of 13,901 was set by the Cincinnati Stingers in 1978. The Cyclones have already surpassed that ticket number and are moving towards a sell-out of U.S. Bank Arena. Tomorrow is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Night at U.S. Bank Arena and will feature a special appearance by Nickelodeon's shelled stars plus $1 Donatos Pizza.
"Year after year we have seen our crowds grow," said Cyclones Vice President and General Manager Kristin Ropp. "A sellout crowd is the result of a great promotion and the hard work of our front office. The atmosphere is going to be electric tomorrow night."
The Cyclones would like to offer the following tips for those attending the game tomorrow night:
• Due to the size of the crowd, we would advise that you arrive to U.S. Bank Arena early. Doors open for Cyclones Season Ticket Holders at 6:15 p.m. with doors for the general public opening at 6:30pm
• The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be appearing in a heated tent behind Section 110 from the time that doors open through 11:00 p.m. Turtles will be available for photographs in pairs and the pairs will switch out every 30 minutes.
• In the interest of keeping the lines fluid and allowing all guests to see the Turtles, we will have a professional photographer on hand to take a photo of your group. Photos can be downloaded at www.cycloneshockey.com/.
• Delicious $1 Donatos pizza slices will be available at all concession stands. Pizza is limited to two slices per person per transaction. We would advise to have cash handy if at all possible to expedite your concessions experience.
This marks the first potential sellout at U.S. Bank Arena in Cyclones history. The crowd will also mark the third largest crowd in ECHL history behind Greensboro's 20,911 in 1994 and 16,377 in 1995. For more information on this and all other Cyclones promotions, please visit www.cycloneshockey.com/.
