The NOR PAC Regular Season begins in less than a week, and the Eugene Generals will be hosting the River City Jaguars on Opening Night, Friday, September 15. Opening Night festivities will include the retiring of former Generals Head Coach Robert Freeland jersey #15, the raising of the Generals 2005-06 NOR PAC Western Division Championship banner, and a live National Anthem. That will be just the start of the excitement, however, as the Generals look to keep their 6 game winning streak against the Jaguars alive.
“Opening Night should be a great experience for everybody that attends,” Generals Head Coach Chris Hartly stated. “There should be a lot of emotion in the air after retiring Bobby’s number and raising our Western Division Championship banner, but the team is prepared to go out and give the fans what they came to see.”
Tickets for Opening Night are available now. Adult tickets are $8.00, students and senior tickets are $5.00, and children 5 and under are free. Opening Night Ceremonies commence at 7:35 PM on Friday, September 16 at Lane Event’s Center-Ice. For those fans who are not able to attend in person, the game will be broadcast on GiTV.
