Standing Room Returns to the PMC in The Sandbar Presented by Sandbagger

For the first time since 2003, fans at Petes home games and other events at the Peterborough Memorial Centre will have an opportunity to mix, mingle, and cheer in a standing room section called The Sandbar presented by Sandbagger, courtesy of a new partnership between the Petes and Sandbagger Hard Seltzer.

For all Petes games and other select PMC events, fans can purchase tickets in the Sandbar Presented by Sandbagger. The section, located at ice level in the area closest to the glass at the south end of the rink (also called “Section C20”, where the Petes are on offense in the first and third periods), will feature full food and beverage service, high-top tables, and other amenities designed to maximize the social experience at a game.

The Sandbar Presented by Sandbagger creates the first opportunity for fans to enjoy the social aspects of a standing room section since before the PMC underwent major renovations in 2003. Tickets are available now for every 2022-23 Petes regular season game for just $15 plus taxes and fees. Group packages are also available by calling (705) 743-3681 ext. 6000 or sending the Petes an email.

“We’ve been listening to our fans relive some of their favourite moments at Petes games, and so many of them involve cheering on the mighty maroon and white in standing room areas prior to the renovations,” added Petes Sales Manager Mike Kosciesza. “The Petes are proud to work with Sandbagger, who are committed to helping bring an even higher level of energy and enthusiasm to the rink.”

“Umbrel Beverage Co. is honoured and excited to welcome Petes fans to The Sandbar,” exclaimed Jay Rowan, President of Umbrel Beverage Co. “Our beverage, Sandbagger Hard Seltzer, is deeply rooted in the rich history of Peterborough. We can’t think of a more meaningful partnership to support our local community. Cheers to the Petes and their fans!”

“The creation of The Sandbar gives Petes fans another exciting way to experience the best hockey in the province,” noted PMC Facility Manager, Jeremy Giles. “Fans will feel like they are a part of the action in this new up close end zone area. Witness the speed, skill, and size of the best junior hockey players Peterborough has to offer from The Sandbar all season long”
