We have been hard at work planning trips for the upcoming season.  We are working on a number of opportunities and they are in various states of completion.  We currently have over 300 tickets purchased or reserved in 6 different cities.  We are still working on a couple more possibilities.  As of 10/9/13 this is what we know:

Washington Capitals - 10/19/13 - SOLD OUT- Tickets only, travel on your own or carpool.  Hotel discount code available for the Hampton Inn in Silver Spring, MD.  Tickets are $95 each.  

These tickets are currently sold out.  Only use the Buy Now button below if you have already made arrangements to purchase these tickets!

Pittsburgh Penguins - 11/1/13 - CANCELLED 9/5/13 - Group Ticket Sales began Monday 8/26/13.  We were planning on purchasing at least 30 tickets for this game but Pittsburgh's group pricing structure has changed.  Despite being told that upper bowl group seating would be available for this game, we are now being told that only lower bowl tickets are available for group sale at $145 - $155 per ticket.

With the price increase, we were unable to find enough interested people to purchase a block of tickets.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Ottawa Senators - 11/17/13 - Update:  Time is running out to join this trip.  We currently have 16 people going to Ottawa.  We have to make our final ticket commitment and payment on 10/14.  If you are interested in going on this trip, please purchase your ticket by Sunday 10/13 at 9:00pm.

Tickets only, travel on your own or car pool. Please remember that you will need a valid, signed passport to travel to and from Canada.  Hotel discount code available for the Holiday Inn & Suites - Ottawa Downtown.  Click here for full details.

Buffalo Sabres - 1/18/14 - We have our bus trip planned.  We have 68 tickets and a 54 passenger bus reserved.  We have reservations at the Hyatt within one mile of the First Niagara Center.  (There is free metro service from the hotel to the arena).  The complete bus package will cost $210 per person (based on 2 people to hotel room).  

PLEASE NOTE:  THE BUS IS CURRENTLY FULL - TICKETS ONLY ARE STILL AVAILABLE - PLEASE USE THE BUTTON BELOW TO PAY FOR THE BUS TRIP ONLY IF YOU ALREADY HAVE MADE ARRANGEMENTS OR UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE PUTTING YOURSELF ON A WAITING LIST.

Nashville Trip Options 3/8/14

New York Islanders - 3/23/14 - We have had very limited feedback about going to New York. If you are interested in seeing if we can get enough interest on a block of tickets please contact Chris at travel@jacketbackers.org.  If we get enough interest, we can see if we can still purchase group seating.

Tampa Bay Lightning/Florida Panthers - 4/11/14 and 4/12/14 - We have reserved blocks of tickets for both games in Florida.  For the Tampa Lightning game we will be seated in Club Level 209 and the tickets are $53 each.  For the Florida Panthers we will be seated in Section 125 and the tickets are $62 each.

We are also looking to see if we can provide shuttle service from Tampa to Miami and back, as well as find hotel discounts for our group.  You would be responsible for your own air transportation to and from Florida.  Please remember that this is Spring Break Season, so book your travel early (or when you believe you have the best price!)
