Sun gets ticket boost from Rockets

WHL club helping to sell seats for Oct. 9 game at Apple Bowl against Raiders

The Kelowna Rockets are throwing their support behind the Okanagan Sun as the B.C. Football Conference club attempts to sell out its final home game of the junior football season.

The Sun will be selling tickets for its Oct. 9 home game against the Vancouver Island Raiders at the next two Rockets home games: Saturday, Oct. 1 and Wednesday, Oct. 5.

“It’s important to me that the Sun have a strong following for this game as it is for first place and a chance to host games in the playoffs,” said Rockets president/GM Bruce Hamilton. “Our goal is to help ensure that game is sold out.”

The Sun host Vancouver Island at 1 p.m. at the Apple Bowl on Oct. 9 to close out the B.C. Football Conference season. The Sun will have a ticket booth set up inside Prospera Place at the Rockets home opener against Vancouver on Oct. 1, and the following Wednesday when Kelowna takes on Tri-City.

“We’re very happy to be able to join forces with the Kelowna Rockets as we work to fill the Apple Bowl for our regular season finale against Vancouver Island on Oct. 9,” said Sun director Blake Roberts. “The Apple Bowl is already known throughout the CJFL for having the best junior football atmosphere and fans in the country. We’d like to thank the Rockets for this opportunity to help create a playoff atmosphere for this game so that Sun fans can really be that 13th man advantage and help the players grab first place in the conference.”
