Brewery is giving away 3,900 tickets to tomorrow night’s semifinal game against Moncton Magic

Hoping to give ‘home court advantage’ new meaning, Moosehead Breweries announced today that they are giving away 3,900 tickets to tomorrow night’s Saint John Riptide game, a pivotal playoff game against the Moncton Magic.

“We’re going to pack Harbour Station to the rafters,” said Patrick Oland, Chief Financial Officer, Moosehead Breweries. “At Moosehead, we’ve been long-time supporters of the Riptide - in fact, we were founding sponsors of the team. But one company, or one sponsor won’t carry this team to victory. It’s going to take the entire community bringing an unprecedented display of Saint John spirit into that arena tomorrow night.”

Fans can pick up their free tickets at the Harbour Station box office at 99 Station Street. Tickets are available immediately, while supplies last, during box office opening hours (until 5:00 p.m. today and between 10 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. tomorrow). A maximum of four tickets are available per person.

Moncton took a 2-0 lead over the Riptide in their best-of-five National Basketball League of Canada series by winning their second straight game at home on Sunday. The Riptide will need to win tomorrow night’s game, which begins at 7:00 p.m., to stave off elimination in the Atlantic Division semifinal.

If the Riptide win tomorrow, game 4 will take place on Thursday, April 11 at 7:00 p.m. at Harbour Station, with game 5, if needed, in Moncton on Saturday at 7:00pm.

Moosehead Breweries is Canada’s oldest independent brewer. Founded in 1867, the same year as Canada, the brewery is privately owned and operated by the sixth generation of the Oland family.
