2 postgame concerts, 10 specialty jersey nights highlight 37th Rivermen season

Peoria, IL – The Peoria Rivermen are excited to announce the team’s promotional schedule for the 2018-19 season, Peoria’s 37th consecutive season of professional hockey. The promotional calendar is set to include two postgame concerts, as well as 10 specialty jersey nights scattered throughout the season.

The Rivermen will open their home schedule with a preseason contest Oct. 13 at Carver Arena, the team’s first preseason game since 2013, with all tickets to the contest available for $10. Peoria’s annual Bruce Saurs Opening Night will take place at Nov. 2’s regular season home opener, with Rivermen magnet schedules given away to the first 2,000 fans courtesy of Envision Insurance Group.

The Rivermen promotional calendar for the 2018-19 campaign is highlighted by a pair of postgame concert nights, set to take place January 18 & 19 following games against the Quad City Storm. The 18th will be Peoria’s Country Music Night with a performance by the Joe Stamm Band, and the following evening will be the Rivermen’s annual Faith & Family Night game, featuring a postgame concert by acclaimed contemporary Christian band I Am They.

Peoria will host the first of their 10 specialty jersey nights November 10 with their Veteran’s Day Celebration Night presented by the Illinois Air National Guard. A full list of Peoria’s 2018-19 specialty jersey nights are as follows:

In addition to Nov. 2’s magnetic schedule giveaway, the first 3,000 fans to Carver Arena Jan. 4 will get a 2019 Rivermen flip calendar, while 1,000 fans will receive a Butch Kaebel bobblehead courtesy of Pekin Insurance on Jan. 19.

March 29’s game with Evansville will be Peoria’s first “Turn Back the Clock Night” with $5 upper bowl tickets and concession and merchandise prices discounted throughout the game.

All four of Peoria’s 2018-19 Sunday home games at Carver Arena, co-sponsored by the Peoria Park District, will again include $3 tickets for kids 12 & under, $2 Raber Meats hot dogs, and include a postgame skate with the team.
