Wild Host Tri-City Saturday For Kids’ Day
WENATCHEE, Wash. – The Wenatchee Wild offseason has been full of fast-paced preparations for the 2023-24 season, as the organization moves into the Western Hockey League this season. Most of those preparations are finished, but the next important task on the schedule is to welcome fans into the building and host a WHL game at Town Toyota Center.
The Wild will check that off the list on Saturday, as the team prepares to celebrate its annual Kids’ Day event as part of a preseason matchup with the Tri-City Americans, one of Wenatchee’s five U.S. Division rivals on the schedule this year. Saturday’s game is the only home game on the team’s preseason slate before the Wild welcome the Portland Winterhawks on September 22 to begin their first season as members of the WHL.
With the game set to be played on the Town Toyota Center’s arena rink, all adult tickets in the bowl are just $12, with kids age 12 and under to be admitted free, with various activities provided by local businesses available on the concourse throughout the game. The first 400 kids in the building will also receive a t-shirt. Saturday’s opening puck drop is scheduled for 6 p.m., with doors opening to fans an hour before.
Wenatchee’s first WHL home game comes on the heels of a 5-2 Wild victory in their preseason opener Wednesday afternoon in Spokane. Five different players scored goals in that game, which saw Wenatchee score on its first three power play chances.
Tickets for Saturday’s game are available here, and tickets for all Wenatchee Wild home-opening games during the 2023-24 regular season are now on sale as well. Season tickets are still available by calling 509-888-7825 or visiting the team office at Town Toyota Center. Updated news and information on Wild hockey are always available through the team’s website and on the team’s social media platforms on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
