20th season of Class A baseball hits Elfstrom
GENEVAâ€”Both single-game and group tickets are now on sale for the Kane County Cougars’ 2010 season. The organizationâ€™s annual ticket-on sale event, held Saturday morning at Elfstrom Stadium, was the formal kickoff for single-game ticket sales.
Open to all Cougars fans, the event was the first opportunity to purchase individual tickets and secure prime seats for home dates that are consistently popular among Cougars faithful. Fans were also treated to an all you-can-eat breakfast buffet inside the Cougarsâ€™ new upstairs Super Suite and were greeted at the door by Ozzie T. Cougar and Cougars staff.
Numerous fans arrived before the first ray of sunshine emerged in west suburban Chicago, including Geneva resident Jay Carroll. Carroll was officially No.1, arriving at midnight to stake his place in line. Carroll was soon joined by Hoffman Estates resident Bill Taylor at 1 a.m. Taylor and Carroll, like many fans this morning, hoped to secure their favorite seats for popular dates such as Saturday evenings, Opening Day and holiday games. Fans both young and old continued to arrive in the pre-dawn hours and throughout the morning to make Elfstrom Stadium a bustling place on a sunny November morning.
Saturdayâ€™s event was the formal ticket on-sale kickoff for the 2010 season as fans can now purchase single-game tickets for the 2010 season in a variety of options, ordering online at www.kccougars.com, by phone at (630) 232-8811 or in-person at the Cougars’ box office during normal business hours.
Season tickets and ticket packages starting at five games are also on sale. All ticket packages include popular fireworks and entertainment nights, along with a complimentary picnic held during the summer. Season ticket holders receive some great perks as well, such as exclusive picnics and access to VIP parties. A new 20-game ticket plan gives fans the ultimate choice in selecting 20 of their favorite dates, to literally customize their entire ticket package.
Group tickets are also on sale for the 2010 seasonâ€”perfect for all types of groups including businesses, social organizations and family gatherings. Parties ranging from 15 to 2,000 people can reserve their block of seats or picnic area today with a deposit. Groups are encouraged to reserve their outing early as the anticipation of the ’10 season will lead to dates filling up quickly.
Picnic options include fully-catered events for groups of 35 or more while groups of 75 or more can reserve one of the Cougars’ exclusive outfield decks. Cougars staff takes care of the preparation, set-up and clean-up as picnic groups can focus on the most important part: enjoying a memorable, affordable and entertaining event from start to finish.
