Avalanche Burgundy\/White Game Returns To Air Force Academy
The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team will hold its annual Burgundy/White Game at Cadet Ice Arena on the grounds of the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., on Tuesday, Sept. 20, at 6:30 p.m.

This marks the fourth time that the Air Force Academy has hosted the event, as they also welcomed the Burgundy/White Game for three straight years from 2007-09.  The 2010 contest was held at 1STBANK Center in Broomfield.

The Burgundy/White Game features all Avalanche players competing in a three-period, intra-squad scrimmage.  Fans in attendance will also have the opportunity to watch a shootout at the end of regulation regardless of the score.

Proceeds from this year’s game will once again benefit military families via Kroenke Sports Charities Seats for Soldiers program as well as youth hockey programs throughout Colorado.   The previous 11 Burgundy/White games have generated in excess of $500,000 for various charitable causes throughout Colorado.  Since 1995, the Colorado Avalanche Community Fund and Kroenke Sports Charities have made donations exceeding $13 million to local charities throughout Colorado.
 
“The Burgundy/White Game is a unique event for Avalanche fans to not only see all the players in action but also support an outstanding cause,” said Avalanche General Manager/Executive Vice President Greg Sherman.  “We are excited to be back at the Air Force Academy and are expecting another great turnout from our fans in the Colorado Springs area.”

Tickets for the game go on sale this Friday (July 8) through Air Force’s official website, www.GoAirForceFalcons.com or by calling 800-666-USAF (8723).  Prices range from $10 for military personnel to $20 for the general public.  For more information, please contact the Air Force Academy box office at 800-666-USAF (8723) or visit www.GoAirForceFalcons.com.
