For the first time in 60 years, the AHL's All-Stars will be coming to Springfield! The 2019 AHL All-Star Classic will begin with the AHL All-Star Skills Competition on Sunday, January 27, featuring the following events: Puck Control Relay, Fastest Skater, Rapid Fire, Hardest Shot, Accuracy Shooting, Pass and Score, and Breakaway Relay.
The next day, Monday, Jan. 28, will begin with the AHL Hall of Fame Induction and Awards Ceremony in the morning, with the 2019 AHL All-Star Challenge taking place that evening. The All-Star Challenge consists of a round-robin, 3-on-3 tournament pitting the four AHL divisions against one another.
Tickets for the 2019 AHL All-Star Classic are priced at $39, $49, $59 and $99, and include admission to both the Skills Competition on Jan. 27 and the All-Star Challenge on Jan. 28.
Springfield Thunderbirds season-ticket members, and fans that would like to become season-ticket members for the 2018-19 season, will have the first opportunity to reserve seating locations by putting down a $50 deposit on a seated-plan starting tonight (tickets for members will be discounted by $9).
Fans looking to purchase tickets to the All-Star Classic, and not a membership, will have the ability to purchase starting Saturday, Feb. 16, in order to guarantee tickets and place them on a priority list (based on purchase date & time). However, seating locations will not be chosen until after the member purchase-period has ended at the conclusion of the 17-18 regular season.
Details, event logo and ticket information for other social events to take place during the All-Star Classic, including the AHL Hall of Fame Induction and Awards Ceremony, will be announced at a later date.
