Toronto, Ontario)-- The Toronto Rock are striving to reach maximum capacity at the Air Canada Centre for the third time in the team's two-year history at the venue. With only five days to go, Rock have sold 16,000 tickets for their game on Saturday January 26, 2002 at 3:30 p.m.
Jason Maglantay, Director of Ticketing and Sales, has confirmed that if the sales trend remain constant they have the potential to see the first sell out of the season.
?Each year we have had a long layoff, this time it was five weeks since our last home game. The Rock fans get anxious and buy their tickets quicker. Right now we are sitting at about 16,000 and hope for a big walk up on gameday. This means that we should be at least 18,000 and should sell out on a good day,? said Maglantay.
The Rock plays host to the Rochester Knighthawks, the top team in the league with a 7-1 record. There is no love lost between the two teams since Kaleb Toth scored the game winner with no time remaining on the clock to secure the championship for the Rock two years ago at Maple Leaf Gardens.
?They are the toughest and strongest team in the league, they know how to score and can make you pay,? said Rock Head Coach Les Bartley ?They haven?t beaten us at home in the last couple years and we haven?t won in Rochester in the team's history. The guys always get fired up for this one.?
