The agreement with Atlanta Spirit, LLC is official with respect to the purchase of the Atlanta Thrashers Hockey Club.
- The purchase of the Thrashers is still subject to the NHL Board of Governors approval at a Board meeting to be held on June 21, 2011.
- The approval of this transaction by the Board will, among other things, consider the level of support generated in the Winnipeg community during a season ticket campaign.
- Once the NHL Board of Governors approval is granted, the purchase of the Thrashers by True North Sports & Entertainment will be complete clearing the way for the NHL club to relocate to Winnipeg’s MTS Centre for the the 2011-2012 hockey season.
As part of the purchase announcement, True North formally kicked off a Drive to 13,000 season ticket sales campaign.
The Drive to 13,000 campaign will consist of a presale as well as a general public onsale. The presale will provide existing Manitoba Moose Season Ticket Holders, Mini Pack Holders, and Corporate Advertising Partners with the opportunity to secure seats during an “advance window presale”. All of these existing customers will be contacted immediately by email with instructions related to their account and purchase priority timelines and procedures.
The presale will officially started on Wednesday, June 1 at 1:00 p.m. and runs to Friday, June 3 at 10:00 p.m.
The general public onsale will commence on Saturday, June 4 at 12:00 p.m.
