The Summerside D. Alex MacDonald Ford Western Capitals are set to kick off the 2019-2020 season on the road on September 14th against the Amherst Ramblers.
Once again this season, the Capitals will start on the road for the first five games of the season, including three games in three days from September 20-22nd in Edmundston, Fredericton, and Grand Falls. The Capitals will return home on Saturday, September 28th at 7pm for their home opener against the defending league champions the Yarmouth Mariners.
The Caps will have a couple of nice stretches at home, including five in a row from Saturday, October 26th until Thursday, November 14th and once again a four game home trip from Thursday, November 21st until Saturday, November 30th.
The popular New Years Eve game is back once again on Tuesday, December 31st at 5pm against the newly moved Fredericton Red Wings. This game brought in over 3,000 fans to the game last year and are hoping for the same result. This years game will also be free to the public to attend along with activities at Credit Union Place through the City of Summerside. Please stay tuned at a later date for complete list of activities.
This season on Islander Day, the Western Capitals will host the Truro Bearcats at 2pm, which takes place on Monday, February 17th. Always a popular game, and expect the same once again.
The league has added two more games to the schedule to make it 52 games. This means two extra home games for our fans, as the showcase has been set aside this season, last season the Capitals only had 24 home games at Credit Union Place and one counting at the Showcase in Pictou.
Don’t forget the Capitals early bird season ticket prices are still in effect until August and are available anytime at the Credit Union Place front desk.
