Cheap beer, pizza, burgers on special for Roughnecks home opener

Dec 19 2019, 10:09 am

This is a party you don’t want to miss.

The Calgary Roughnecks lacrosse team is hosting the Colorado Mammoth for their home opener this weekend, and it’s looking to be an exciting night with happy hour specials, a banner-raising ceremony, and, of course, a fast-paced, hard-hitting game.

The Roughnecks won the National Lacrosse League (NLL) Cup at the end of the 2018/2019 season, marking the third time that the organization has come out victorious in the post-season in the past 18 years.

To celebrate, a championship banner-raising ceremony will be held prior to Saturday’s game, and the first 3,000 people to enter the Saddledome will receive a free mini banner to take home.

Those who miss out on the souvenir will still have reason to show up a little early, as concessions throughout the arena will be offering happy hour specials between 6 and 7:30 pm.

Lacrosse fans will be able to grab beer, highballs, wine, cheeseburgers, pizza slices, and pop and hotdogs combos for just $5 each if purchased before the game starts — making for what will surely be a rowdy night.

Tickets are currently available on Ticketmaster starting at $27.
