Couldn't find a thread regarding this, so I decided to start one. Single game tickets for the Greenville Road Warriors went on sale today. :thumbsup: First home game scheduled for October 21st. All home games are slated to be played at the Bi-Lo Center. Ticket prices range in price from $9-$17. There will also be a pre-season game at the Bi-Lo Center on October 12th. All tickets for that are only $6.

Wow, that is one ugly mascot! shok.gif

Looks more like a Walter to me. :D I personally LOVE it as do most of the people commenting on their facebook page.

I think it's a cool mascot! They purposely made him ugly and monsterish, which I think makes him sort of charming and cute. Well done! :thumbsup:

He looks funny! laugh.gif But I too like it...and hey! The one in the white shirt to his right was one of my managers at Liquid Highway.

With the beatdown win over Gwinnett last night, the Road Warriors not only moved into first place in their division but also claimed the best record in the entire ECHL this season: http://www.echl.com/...?type=standings :tough:

Excellent! I've been to one game this season and enjoyed it. It was cool to see some Players from my alma mater RIT. both on the Road Warriors and the Stingrays. Course they change players around to much to keep track. Anyone know what the average attendance has been? meeting expectations, exceeding? Will more then likely be going to a couple more games this season.

It is great to see the growing enthusiasm for the Road Warriors. With a couple of recent games over the 5K mark in attendance, seems the Road Warriors are definitely tapping into the community. I've noticed when out with friends lately, the Road Warriors come up much more frequently as a topic of conversation. Could the great year they are having (wins) be influencing things or has Greenville finally warmed to ice hockey? :dontknow: Either way, nice to see.

:) Several different reasons in my opinion and those include:

-More advertising and community involvement. I've noticed six billboards so far for the Road Warriors and a lot more school involvement from the team. I didn't see one billboard from the Grrrowl the entire time they were in existence here. Also, the Road Warriors have game/team/coach shows at area restaurants including Quaker Steak & Lube, Hoops and Hops, and Bailey's. I don't remember ever seeing that with the Grrrowl.

-More wins. The Road Warriors are easily the best team in the ECHL currently. That is definitely creating interest.

-Cheaper tickets. The single-game tickets are cheaper than they were with the Grrrowl. Some of the seats that were $21 with the Grrrowl are now just $13 with the Road Warriors.

-More interest in hockey itself. The 2010 Winter Olympics between USA and Canada definitely got people talking more about the sport.

-More residents/northern transplants. The population of this area continues to grow and is definitely a lot larger than it was in 1998.

6,388 in attendance last night which is the largest of the season and 5,624 in attendance Friday night.

That is great to hear. I was worried that the team would suffer the same fate as the Grrrowl. I am looking forward to seeing some games when I visit family in the Greenville area.

The Greenville Road Warriors facing elimination won tonight 5-1 in Wheeling which means they stay alive and will return home to play at least one more game at the Bi-Lo Center next Tuesday night. If they win that one then they'll play Wednesday night there also. Greenville currently has two wins while Wheeling has three. First one to four wins moves on to the next round. Do or die time.

:tough: LET"S GO ROAD WARRIORS :tough:

The folks behind me at the hockey game today were saying that last night's crowd was the largest of the season. Can anyone confirm this?

Today's game was the first Road Warrior's game I've attended. It was actually a really good time! They beat Chicago in sudden death overtime!

Yes I can. They had 6,158 in attendance last night. I was one of them. :thumbsup: Largest crowd of the season and second largest ever.
