Humboldt Broncos sell out home opener
The Humboldt Broncos‘ first regular season game next week on home ice has sold out.
It will be the team’s first home game since a bus crash on April 6 killed 16 people, including 11 members of the team.
The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League team was on its way to Nipawin for a playoff game against the Hawks, who they will face on Sept. 12 at Elgar Petersen Arena.
The team said only a “very limited number” of tickets for the game were made available from the team office for purchase in-person or over the phone.
Tickets for the second home game on Sept. 22, when the Broncos take on the Battleford Stars, went on sale Wednesday morning.
