2016 Takeover Links
Flyers – 3/6/16
WHAT IS THE TAKEOVER?
The Takeover is a huge group outing between hockey fans, specifically fans of the Philadelphia Flyers. At the Takeover, we play hockey on the ice in the early afternoon, have a tailgate, and then we watch a professional game that night.
In 2015, I decided to start organizing this type of event with the members of r/Flyers on Reddit.com, families, and friends. After gathering all the information about the event from my rep from the Flyers, I started putting together the outing.
The date for last year was set for March 7, 2016 against the Tampa Bay Lightning. The tickets were to cost $45, but I decided to have everyone send me $5 more. This was to pay for extra things, such as a photographer, custom pucks, and any other necessary fees.
After everything was organized, the date came and went without any big hiccups. 120 people came to the first event, and it was a major success.
I decided to form this event again for the 2016-17 hockey season but with a twist. Not only will we be having the Takeover at the Wells Fargo Center with the Flyers, but we will be having a Takeover with one of the Flyers’ minor league teams, the Reading Royals.
The schedule will remain the same for both Takeovers, with a 90-minute ice time session in the early afternoon, a tailgate afterwards, and a professional game to end the night.
The WFC Takeover will be Monday, March 13, and the Royal Takeover will be Saturday, April 1.
