The Peoria Rivermen, in conjunction with the Southern Professional Hockey League, have announced that their home game against Bloomington on New Year’s Day will now begin at 5:15 p.m. No other changes have been made.
The adjustment pushes the start time up two hours. Previously, the game had been scheduled for 7:15 p.m. CST.
Join the Rivermen as they ring in a New Year by wearing special edition New Year’s Day jerseys (pictured), which will be auctioned off live after the game at Carver Arena. The first night of 2014 will also be jam packed with other great specials including a New Year's themed ticket deal.
Aside from the custom jersey design, all fans can purchase a 4-pack of upper bowl tickets for just $20.14. That’s a savings of nearly $30. In addition, the New Year’s Day game has been declared a “guaranteed win night.” If the Rivermen don’t go home with a victory, all fans in attendance will receive a FREE voucher to the next home game on Saturday, January 11.
The New Year’s Day sweaters are one of five specialty jerseys the Rivermen will wear this season. On Nov. 2, the team wore a custom military-style camouflage jersey in support of Illinois Air National Guard – Salute to Veterans Night. In addition, Peoria will wear “Central Illinois STRONG” jerseys Dec. 20, special Valentine’s Day jerseys Feb. 14, and Peoria Chiefs baseball-style jerseys Mar. 1.
New Year’s Day will also be a season ticket holder “Bring a Friend” redemption night.
