GRIFFINS RELEASE 2012-13 PROMOTIONAL SCHEDULE

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Grand Rapids Griffins on Monday released their promotional schedule for the 2012-13 season, highlighted by a variety of giveaways, performances and popular season-long promotions.

The fun starts with a jam-packed season-opening weekend to begin the Griffins’ 17th season. The Griffins will host Milwaukee for Opening Night presented by Xfinity on Friday, Oct. 12 with an extended pre-game show, an LED Glow Stix Giveaway, and the first of several Huntington Bank autograph sessions and J&H Family Stores open skates immediately after the game. The following night, fans can enjoy another post-game autograph session as well as a Griffins calendar giveaway presented by Delta Imports.

Single-game tickets for the opener, and all 37 of the Griffins’ regular season home games at Van Andel Arena, will go on sale to the general public this Saturday, Sept. 15 at 10 a.m. Advance ticket prices are $14, $16 and $18 in the arena’s upper level, and $18, $22, $26 and $32 in the lower level. (Additional $2 per ticket on day of game.)

Griffins tickets can always be purchased in advance of game night through the following methods (all purchases subject to a convenience charge):

•    In person at The Zone at Van Andel Arena;

•    In person at Star Tickets outlets, including all Meijer stores;

•    Online through griffinshockey.com;

•    By phone through Star Tickets at 1-800-585-3737.

On game night, tickets may be purchased without a convenience charge at the Van Andel Arena box office, beginning 90 minutes before game time. Fans who attend multiple games can avoid charges and receive a discount from the single-game price by purchasing a 10- or 20-game partial season package. These plans, along with full-season and group ticket packages, may be ordered through the Griffins’ office at (800) 2-HOCKEY.

Griffins’ fans will enjoy both old and new performances this season, with a pair of returning acts to go along with several new ones.
