Eagles experimenting with changes to game day production
In an attempt to address fan feedback and improve in-game atmosphere at Centre 200 during Cape Breton Eagle’s home games, the organization will be experimenting with various changes around the arena moving forward.
Earlier this month, the club completed a survey which asked fans what could be done to improve their in game experience this season. The survey’s results identified the need for an improved atmosphere during home games, including changes to in-game production, and fan seating.
One of the first changes the organization is experimenting with is the temporary closing of the top half of the upper bowl. This is a way to have more fans seated in the lower bowl to increase the noise level and atmosphere for our players and for the rest of the fans in attendance.
Season ticket holders who are sat in the upper bowl will still have their tickets honoured and will be granted access to remain in the upper bowl despite this change. Season ticket holders will have the option to move their designated seat if they wish to move into the lower bowl. Fans also seated in the Blue Lobster Lounge seating area will be granted access to the upper bowl.
Moving forward, as attendance increases the upper bowl will be reopened for all fans in attendance.
Since the first changes were made, the organization is happy to already see immediate improvement in both fan engagement and overall game atmosphere.
The Eagles appreciate any fan feedback and thank you for your patience and understanding as we experiment with these new changes.
