The Greenville Swamp Rabbits hockey team will play a preseason exhibition game against their in-state rival, the South Carolina Stingrays, on Dec. 5 at 7:05 p.m. at Bon Secours Wellness Arena.
Fans attending the game will purchase tickets in pods, which will allow family members and/or trusted acquaintances to sit together while supporting physical distancing between each group of ticket holders. In addition, attendees will not be allowed to bring bags into the venue, and masks will be required inside.
“With the National Hockey League and American Hockey League set to begin play later this winter, we are excited for the opportunity to be the highest pro hockey league in North America to drop the puck,” said Todd Mackin, president of the Greenville Swamp Rabbits. “We are proud to coordinate with Bon Secours Wellness Arena to successfully welcome fans back into our arena in a safe manner.”
Tickets for this exhibition are $10 per person, and proceeds will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. LLS’s mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
The Swamp Rabbits will officially kick off their 2020-21 regular season on Dec. 11 in Charleston against the Stingrays. Their first home game is scheduled for Dec. 18 against the Florida Everblades.
