Phantoms Set To Celebrate 5 Years in Lehigh Valley

June 14, 2018


Lehigh Valley, Pa. — Let the countdown begin.

The Lehigh Valley Phantoms, proud AHL affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers, are excited to announce the team’s home opener for their highly-anticipated fifth season at PPL Center is set for Saturday, October 6, 2018.  Which means another thrilling regular season of Phantoms hockey action in the Lehigh Valley is just 99 days away!

“Our home opener is always a special night for us,” said Phantoms Executive Vice President Chris Porreca.  “After our run to the Eastern Conference Finals in this past season’s Calder Cup Playoffs we know that the fans are already anxiously awaiting the return of the team.  We’re already taking steps to be sure that this year’s home opener is another memorable evening for our fans. Phan Nation has now helped to produce standing-room only sellouts for all of our first four home openers at PPL Center and we’re looking forward to another full house to kick off the 2018-19 season — our fifth in the Lehigh Valley.”

In addition to the Home Opener, the Phantoms are excited to announce five additional home dates for the upcoming 2018-19 season. Check out the dates and associated promotions listed below:
