The South Carolina Stingrays, proud affiliate of the NHL’s Washington Capitals and AHL’s Hershey Bears, have announced select themes for Saturday night games during the 2019-20 season including many fan-favorites from previous seasons and six specialty jersey nights.

“I’m very excited about how our promotional schedule is going to look for the 2019-20 season,” Stingrays President Rob Concannon said. “We look forward to continuing to implement theme nights that have become fan-favorites as well as partnering with great local organizations in the area that can provide support to new initiatives. When people think about ‘what should I do tonight’, we want them to think of the Stingrays.”

The team’s home opener for its 27th ECHL campaign will take place Oct. 19 against the Orlando Solar Bears and feature their annual ‘Pack The House Night’ with discounted tickets available throughout the arena.

On Nov. 16, the Stingrays will host their first-ever Hockey Fights Cancer Night, featuring specialty jerseys and a postgame auction. Proceeds from the jersey will be donated to a designated charity.

The team’s popular Teddy Bear Toss Night will return on Dec. 14, when the club will collect stuffed animals for donation to those in need during the holiday season.

Canines of all shapes and sizes will be welcomed at the North Charleston Coliseum on Jan. 11 for Pucks & Paws Night, while the team will honor our country’s finest the following week on Jan. 18 during their annual Military Appreciation Night.

One of the most popular nights in 2018-19, Star Wars Night, returns once again on Feb. 22 and SC will host local schoolchildren for an Education Day game at 10:30 a.m. on Feb. 26 against the Atlanta Gladiators.

The final two home weekends of the season will be highlighted by Pink In The Rink Night on March 21 when the Rays will once again support Share Our Suzy of the Lowcountry, and First Responders Night on March 28 when the team will pay tribute to all of the first responders in the region.

All Saturday night games for the 2019-20 season will begin at 6:05 p.m.

More information, including the full promotional schedule and giveaway items, is in the works and will be announced closer to the 2019-20 season.
