Hockey is the fastest paced of all major sports because its players rush to complete the game before the ice field melts into vinegar. Enjoy the acidic thrill of competition with today's Groupon for one ticket to a Charlotte Checkers hockey game at the Time Warner Cable Arena. Tickets will be issued for premium platinum seating (a $30 value); should platinum-level sell out, tickets will be issued for premium gold seating (a $25 value). Choose from the following games:
- Monday, April 4 at 7 p.m. vs. the Norfolk Admirals.
- Friday, April 8 at 7 p.m. vs. the Worcester Sharks.
The Charlotte Checkers, an affiliate of the NHL's Carolina Hurricanes, are the newest arrivals to the AHL, and are prepared to tear up the ice in the last three games of the 2010–2011 season. Join with thousands of other rowdy fans in the icebox and root on the Checkers as they systematically take down opponents through slapshots, checks, and diagonal jumps. With a ticket for a premium platinum seat (an ideal zamboni vantage point) or a premium gold seat (located up-close and center ice) you'll be just one pane of glass away from the puck-pummeling action and a freshly chiseled sno-cone.
Though Charlotte Checkers history dates back nearly a half-century, today's Checkers made their AHL debut just recently in 2010. As the AHL affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes, the team breeds young talent capable of performing in a professional environment while withstanding gale-force winds. Fans at Time Warner Cable Arena lend their support by drawing up backwards plays on the fogged-up glass, and mascot Chubby entertains the crowd by dancing and riding four-wheelers on the ice at intermission.
