Champions on Ice

By Jessica Forbes

Season openers are always a special event for sports fans, but for the Ice Flyers’ faithful, this year there promises to be even more excitement in the air at the Pensacola Bay Center. As the reigning Southern Professional Hockey League Champions, the Ice Flyers will open their 2013-2014 season this Friday against the Columbus Cottonmouths with a new title, a new coach, and a host of new game time activities.

“We actually start planning for the next season in June as we are putting together the schedule with the league,” said Pensacola Ice Flyers President Chuck McCartney. “Opening night this year has been different since we have been planning the ring presentation and banner unveiling for several months now.”

The season opener will be the team’s Championship Celebration Night complete with a party on the entrance plaza, championship ring ceremony, and a post-game auction of commemorative Championship jerseys that the Ice Flyers will wear during the game. In addition to the Championship Celebration, the Pensacola Ice Flyers staff will roll out several other new and/or improved aspects of the fan experience that will be part of the 28 regular season games scheduled this season.
