One of the great local sports clubs in Southwest Michigan is the Kalamazoo Wings hockey team. They are members of the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) which was founded in 1988. The league originally started with just five teams, and has grown to nineteen teams each with a 72 game schedule.
The league now spans the U.S. with teams on the West coast as well. Attending a K-Wings game is quite easy, and one can choose to pay for V.I.P. Parking which is $10 or park in the free lot across the street. The walk was not too much, so I chose the free lot. The tickets range anywhere from $10 to $16 depending on seating, and whether or not you pay in advance. Season tickets are also available.
For more information on the K-Wings hockey tickets, check out their website at: www.wingsstadium.com. The venue of Wings Stadium is a typical hockey arena with a hallway the surrounds to rink, which includes food, drinks, souvenirs and vending machines.
Attending a K-Wings game is exciting, and being that the team is pretty good, they have
quite a solid fan base. Attendance at the game I recently attended left the arena mostly full.
If you are looking for a local sports diversion during winter, you should consider putting a K-Wings game on your calendar. It is a lot of fun, and a great event for the kids as well. The intermission activities frequently involve children in the games and contests on the ice, but parents or guardians need to sign a waiver allowing participation.
The local mascot for the K-Wings is called ‘Slappy’ and he keeps the fans involved in the game with his antics. The K-Wings play a lot home games every season, and it is usually quite easy to get tickets. It is even possible to purchase your tickets right at the stadium. The games are a lot of fun!
