The Ontario Hockey League today announced the Exhibition Game Schedule for the 2019-20 season. The Kitchener Rangers will play five games before the commencement of the 2019-20 regular season, including three games during our Preseason Showcase.
The 2019 Preseason Showcase will be held at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium from August 30 – September 1, 2019. Along with the Rangers, the Showcase will feature the North Bay Battalion, Saginaw Spirit and the Peterborough Petes.
All teams will meet over the course of the weekend, with three games per team for a total of six weekend games.
Tickets to the Preseason Showcase are $10 for a weekend pass which provides entry to all games, or $5 per game. Seating for the games will be general admission.
Tickets are available starting Monday, August 1 at the Kitchener Rangers business office only (not available online or through Centre in the Square) and are cash only sales. The Kitchener Rangers business office is open Monday-Friday, 9:30am to 1pm and 2pm-5pm.
Tickets will also be available day of game at the door; cash only sales.
Proceeds support the Children’s Wish Foundation.
“We are very excited to be hosting our 2nd Preseason Showcase this year. Last year we had a lot of positive feedback from the teams that participated and our fans so the decision to do it again was a no-brainer,” said general manager Mike McKenzie.
“It will be great to have North Bay and Saginaw back for another year, but also exciting to welcome Peterborough as a new team this time around. Once again, all proceeds will be going to a great cause and it will be a fun way to kick off another year of Rangers Hockey.”
The Rangers annual Fan Fest and Barbecue, also in support of the Children’s Wish Foundation, will take place on Sunday, September 1 starting at 10am prior to the Rangers’ final game of the Preseason Showcase at 2pm.
During Fan Fest, fans will have the opportunity to meet the Rangers players, enjoy a BBQ lunch and take part in a number of activities including inflatable games and rides.
The Rangers will also play two more exhibition games before the onset of the 2019-20 regular season, as they take on the Barrie Colts for a home-and-home beginning Friday, September 13 at The Aud at 7:30pm. The two teams head to Barrie the following night, Saturday, September 14, for a 7:30pm start to round out preseason play.
