Adirondack Flames Home-Opener October 11th
The beginning of a new era for the Calgary Flames top farm team as well as the City of Glens Falls begins on Saturday, October 11th as the Adirondack Flames make their home debut at the Glens Falls Civic Center at 7PM. The opponent will be announced at a later time.
"We are, obviously, planning a big night for the beginning of our season," said Adirondack Flames President Brian Petrovek said at a press conference Thursday.
The Flames also announced that they have received seven more guaranteed dates, six of which are on Saturday, and one that falls on a "very popular" holiday date "when one year ends and another one begins." Those dates will be revealed and released to the public at a later date.
In addition, the Adirondack Flames are hoping to build upon the success of prior Adirondack teams on Saturday nights, and thus will brand those games as "Saturday Night is Hockey Night in Glens Falls". Petrovek hopes that the additional branding and promotion will lead to more sellouts on Saturday nights, spilling over to Friday night home games and then to Sunday afternoon games.
