Partner Spotlights are our way to shine a light on some of our amazing local partners across the country and give them a platform to tell their unique story. Iain, Director of Business and Game Operations with the Prince George Cougars wants to share his!
Tell us about your business:
The Cougars are a member of the Western Hockey League, and the Canadian Hockey League – the largest development hockey league in the world. We cater to all type of fans – those wanting to watch future NHL players each night, as well as those coming simply for an entertaining, affordable, night out.
What is the one thing you would like people to know about your business?
How affordable it is to come to a game. We have single-game tickets starting at just $13 per seat, while the best seats in the house for Seniors and Students are only $19. Season Memberships are even more affordable with tickets as low as $7.70 per seat/per game.
What made you want to partner with GetintheLoop?
Partnering with GetintheLoop was a great way to support a new local business, and gave us (the Cougars) a new way to reach hockey fans in Prince George while offering them some incredible deals.
What’s your favourite part about owning or managing the business?
Being able to see all our hard work come together on a game night and entertain people is a great feeling. Each game takes well over 200 people to work including Cougars staff, ticketing staff, volunteers, city staff, concession staff, and of course the players and more so it’s pretty spectacular when everything lines up and we get the crowd cheering.
Is there a community cause or event that you support that you would like to give a shoutout to?
The Cougars partner with countless community groups, so it’s hard to name just one. From our nightly volunteers groups (Salvation Army, Nechako Rotary, Big Brothers Big Sisters, JDC West, Canadian Cancer Society), to our new Charity Zone this season where for every weekend game (Friday & Saturday) if fans ask to sit there, the Cougars will donate 33% of the ticket cost back to a different local cause each night.
