Phantoms to Host Outdoor Classic
The Phantoms have announced they will be a part
of the NHL Winter Classic week-long celebration
of hockey when they host the Hershey Bears on January
6 at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. This will
be only the third outdoor game in AHL history and
is the first to be associated with the NHL Winter
Classics. It is also the first ever outdoor game
for the Phantoms.
"This is an extremely exciting day for the
Phantoms organization and Phantoms fans everywhere,"
said Phantoms President Rob Brooks. "A hockey
celebration and atmosphere unlike anything the AHL
has ever seen will happen at Citizens Bank Park.
We are extremely grateful to (Comcast Spectacor
President) Peter Luukko for helping make this truly
great event a reality."
Citizens Bank Park will also host the Philadelphia
Flyers vs. the New York Rangers on January 2. It
is the baseball home for the Philadelphia Phillies
and will have a seating capacity of approximately
40,000. The Phantoms are hoping to break the all-time
AHL attendance record of 21,673 set last season
at an outdoor game in East Hartford, Conn.
