For those interested in purchasing season tickets for the Western Hockey League's lone Manitoban representative, the Brandon Wheat Kings, early bird pricing ends Thursday, June 14th.
Following on the heels of a productive 2017-18 season and playoff campaign, this coming year's version of the Wheat Kings looks to be an exciting combination of veteran leadership and incoming talent. David Anning will be back behind the Wheaties bench, hoping to improve on Brandon's most recent 40-27-5 record.
Season ticket packages remain under special pricing until Friday, where each category of ticket jumps up anywhere from 20-30 dollars. Ticket packages are broken down into age classifications: Adult ($470), Senior (65+, $420.00), Youth (13-17, $315) and Child (6-12, $210), while family discounts and monthly payments are available for purchase.

The Wheat Kings will also supply a throwback Ron Hextall bobblehead to accompany each early bird season ticket package purchase. All pertinent ticket information can be found online, or by calling the Wheat Kings' Box Office at Keystone Centre at 204-726-3535.
The 2018-19 WHL season is set to open Friday, September 21st, while prospect and development camps are already underway.
