New Northern Kickoff clothing line and tickets available for holiday season

(Fort McMurray, AB, December 2, 2013) – MacDonald Island Park and the Northern Kickoff have introduced a line of clothing to celebrate the Northern Kickoff presented by Shell Albian Sands. The Northern Kickoff, a four-day community celebration to be held in June 2015, will see the Edmonton Eskimos take on the Saskatchewan Roughriders in a pre-season exhibition game at SMS Equipment Stadium at Shell Place.

The new clothing line has just arrived, with a strong emphasis on winter apparel for the approaching season. Ranging from fully insulated winter jackets to hoodies, shells, t-shirts, and toques, the high-quality clothing line reflects the excitement generated by the upcoming game, which will be the furthest north game in CFL history.

While over 10,000 seat reservations to the Northern Kickoff have been sold to date, tickets are still available to the 2015 history-making game through or Guest Services on the main floor of the Suncor Community Leisure Centre. Ticket options include:

  • Upper Deck Area at $99 plus fees and GST
  • Family End Zone at $49 plus fees and GST
  • Northern Kickoff Pack at $219 plus fees and GST (includes $99 ticket to Northern Kickoff presented by Shell)

The Northern Kickoff Pack available for $219 includes a ticket to the Northern Kickoff game, as well as four ‘Name Your Game’ vouchers to Eskimo home games – a savings of nearly 20% off retail prices. The ‘Name Your Game’ vouchers can be used at any Eskimo home game until the end of the 2015 Eskimo home schedule (excluding playoffs).

“This clothing line has launched with an amazing array of winter apparel,” said Tim Reid, Chief Operating Officer of MacDonald Island Park and Vice-Chair of the Northern Kickoff. “Perfect for under the Christmas tree, these items are designed to get people into the spirit of the game as we start heading towards an event that is certain to become iconic in the history of the Wood Buffalo region.”

The Northern Kickoff clothing line is now available at the Northern Kickoff kiosk on the main floor of the Suncor Community Leisure Centre. The kiosk hours are Monday to Friday from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm and weekends from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.
