“We are thrilled with the growth of our season ticket holder base. Rush Nation continues to steadily grow and prove why Saskatchewan has the best sports fans in the world,” Rush owner Bruce Urban said in a press release.

“Rush season ticket holders can expect some very exciting things from this team in the upcoming season and for years to come.”

Rush officials said season ticket holders are primarily Saskatoon-based, however a spike in sales is largely due to fans in Regina, Prince Albert, Moose Jaw, Swift Current, Lloydminister, Humboldt and North Battleford.
