The season kicks off with Opening Night on Oct. 14, which will feature a calendar giveaway presented by Novant Health and a ticket package including a black crown logo shirt - matching the team’s new alternate jerseys which will be debuted that night.
The Checkers will don three specialty jerseys throughout the season - one on Jan. 21’s North Carolina Night presented by Novant Health, one on Feb. 11’s Military Appreciation Night presented by Independence Fund and one on March 11’s 90s Night presented by Helacious. Each set of game-worn jerseys will be auctioned online around that contest.
Some new additions for this year include Haunted Night ahead of Halloween and Hockey $1.01 on Jan. 10 (featuring $1.01 tickets and focusing on introducing new fans to the game), while Oktoberfest presented by Charlotte Mechanical (10/22) and Hockey Is For Everyone Night (2/18) return from seasons past.
