The ECHL North Division Champions of 2010, the Kalamazoo Wings bring their fast-paced, ribcage-rattling brand of hockey action to fans as they punish pucks with ceaseless abandon. Strewn together from twigs and spare concrete deposits, their victory nest at Wings Stadium features four full-service concession stands with two specialty bars, including The Icehouse—operated by Old Burdick's restaurant—and the newest addition, The Underground Sports Bar, located at the ice level. Visitors on January 30th can enjoy the Family Hockey Night benefits of gift giveaways for the first 500 kids, as well as free popcorn for moms who bring jersey-sporting children. Kids also eat free on January 30. College Night on February 2nd includes food and drink specials and half off at concession stands and Old Burdick's.
Kalamazoo Gazette readers named the Kalamazoo Wings best local sports team in 2010. Ticketmaster reviewers give Wings games an average rating of 4.4 stars, and more than 1,000 Facebookers are fans of the team:
- Kalamazoo boasts high-caliber professional hockey that gives fans plenty of action before and after the referees blow their whistles. – The Kalamazoo Gazette
- This was a fun event, the stadium was a nice size, not overly big but not too small either. I enjoyed the fact that it felt more family orientated [sic], a good place to take your kids for an evening out if they enjoy sports. – EmCat99, Ticketmaster
Wings Stadium plays host to more than just board-slamming checks during the Kalamazoo Wings' home hockey games. On select days, the 8,023-seat venue opens its frozen confines to amateurs interested in all sorts of winter sports. Skaters of all ages can glide across the smooth ice during open-skating sessions, and members of the Kalamazoo Curling Club practice and face off throughout the fall and winter. On weekend nights, hockey fans can bring their own skates to a K-Wings home game and finish their night skating and checking the ice for lost incisors.
