2017 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series PreGame
NHL Stadium Series™ title partner, Coors Light, will be giving fans 21 years and older the refreshing reward of a cold Coors Light in the Coors Light Beer Garden at The PreGame. Penguins and Flyers alumni will be at the Coors Light Beer Garden on Feb. 25 from 4:00-7:00 p.m. ET to help fans join the Coors Light sustainability mission by taking their best shot at the Coors Light Slap Shot.
Fans also have the opportunity to join thousands of people making the pledge to never drive drunk and always have a designated driver with Coors Light – the Official Beer of the NHL – and TEAM Coalition. Those who make the pledge will receive a souvenir photo and be entered to win a NHL prize pack.
The National Hockey League (NHL) and a dozen of its corporate partners will entertain hockey fans in Pittsburgh with The PreGame, the official tailgate party of the 2017 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series™ – the highly-anticipated, regular-season outdoor game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers at Heinz Field on Feb. 25. Held at Stage AE’s outdoor music stage and parking lot across from Heinz Field, the two-day hockey-themed, family-friendly festival will be free and open to the public and feature live music, special appearances, and food and hockey attractions, including the NHL Centennial Fan Arena. An interactive traveling experience honoring a century’s worth of extraordinary players, teams, remarkable plays and unforgettable moments, the NHL Centennial Fan Arena will also feature the most revered trophy in all sports — the Stanley Cup®.
The PreGame will be open to the general public on Friday, Feb. 24 (in the parking lot only) and Saturday, Feb. 25 from 3:00-8:00 p.m. ET each day. A ticket will not be required for access.
Fans who visit The PreGame will gain access to the NHL Centennial Fan Arena during its stop in Pittsburgh as part of its visit to all NHL markets across North America in 2017. Created with NHL players and fans at the center of the experience, the NHL Centennial Fan Arena includes an innovative museum truck with 1,000-square-feet of interactive digital displays and historical memorabilia, a one-of-a-kind virtual-reality Zamboni® game, and the Stanley Cup. Penguins fans will get their first chance to see the Stanley Cup engraved with the names of the 2016 Stanley Cup Championship team.
Pittsburgh’s own My Hero Zero will perform on Stage AE’s outdoor music stage on Saturday, Feb. 25. Additional entertainment will be announced at a later date.
