The San Diego Gulls inaugural season will be filled with numerous theme nights, promotions and specials, beginning Oct. 10 with an Opening Night Ceremony prior to the Gulls taking on Grand Rapids. Each ticketed guest will receive an Inaugural AHL Commemorative Ticket upon entry. Following Opening Night, the Gulls will host “Willie O’Ree Night” on Oct. 16, a celebration of O’Ree and his contribution to the sport of hockey on all levels. O’Ree’s #20 jersey will be raised to the rafters at Valley View Casino Center during the pregame commemoration. Each ticketed guest will receive a Willie O’Ree Jersey Rally Towel upon entry.
The Gulls will hold Military Week in November for a three-game home stand, including Veterans Day (Nov. 11), “Enter the Danger Zone” with a Top Gun theme (Nov. 13) and Salute to Heroes (Nov. 14).
The Gulls will take part in two theme nights that have become staples in AHL hockey. The Teddy Bear Toss will take place on Dec. 18 and Pink in the Rink (Breast cancer awareness) on Feb. 6. In addition, Feb. 27 will be Throwback Night, where fans will be taken through the robust history of hockey in San Diego.
In addition to a variety of theme nights throughout the season, the Gulls will hold postgame skates after seven games. These games include Oct. 30, Nov. 14, Dec. 18, Jan. 6, Feb. 6, Mar. 11 and Apr. 3. Restrictions may apply.
On each Friday home game, the Gulls will offer $2 beers starting two hours before the game and running until one hour after puck drop. The game on Wednesday, Nov. 11 will also be included in this promotion. Each Saturday home game will include a pregame tailgate featuring happy hour pricing on food and drinks, live entertainment and more. Tailgates are for individuals 21-years-of-age and above.
