Ticket drive an­nounced for prospec­tive CFL team

Truro Daily News - - SPORTS -

Fans can pur­chase sea­son ticket de­posits for an At­lantic CFL team.

The an­nounce­ment was made by Mar­itime Foot­ball Lim­ited Part­ner­ship (MFLP), with the sup­port of Cana­dian Foot­ball League Com­mis­sioner, Randy Am­brosie at Saint Mary’s Uni­ver­sity in Hal­i­fax.

It’s part of an on­go­ing process to gauge in­ter­est for a CFL fran­chise in At­lantic Canada.

“This is a big day for Hal­i­fax and At­lantic Canada,” said An­thony Leblanc, found­ing part­ner of Mar­itime Foot­ball Lim­ited Part­ner­ship. “It’s a day foot­ball fans have been wait­ing for and an im­por­tant step to­ward bring­ing an­other pro­fes­sional sports team to this re­gion.”

Avail­able for pur­chase now, sea­son ticket de­posits are $50 per pack­age and the de­posit will place fans on a pri­or­ity list for sea­son ticket mem­ber­ship and seat se­lec­tion on a first-come, first-served ba­sis.

In ad­di­tion, found­ing fans who make a de­posit for sea­son tick­ets will be el­i­gi­ble to par­tic­i­pate in a Name the Team con­test. This ex­clu­sive group will be asked to vote on name op­tions, or sub­mit their own pre­ferred name. The team name will be an­nounced at a spe­cial event dur­ing Grey Cup week­end later this month.

Ticket prices will be an­nounced well in ad­vance of the club’s in­au­gu­ral sea­son. Part­ners aim to have play­ers on the field as early as 2021.
