Get Your Game On


Kids love being entertained and parents love getting out of the house. Right?
That’€™s why local sporting events are a great idea for a fall family outing.

Skip the downtown traffic, pay a fraction of the game price at Rogers Arena, and head to UBC to watch your favourite Thunderbird team in action. Choose from T-Birds football, hockey, basketball and volleyball, and watch an entertaining game with highly competitive male and female athletes (who may be among the next up-and-coming professional superstars) in a fan-friendly atmosphere (read: kids can make noise and you can afford the tickets).

Your girls may find inspiration in watching one of the women’€™s hockey, basketball and volleyball teams, too. Add in the brand new $20 family pass (which includes admission for up to five family members) and the deal gets even better. As a bonus, Saturday, October 29 is the last regular season home football game (2 pm against University of Calgary), and the T-Birds are putting on a great Halloween celebration for families who attend. Children under 12 are encouraged to come in costume and participate in a half-time parade across the field. They’€™ll get to meet Thunder the mascot, take home a loot bag and lots of other fun giveaways.
Good to Know: Men’€™s and women’€™s basketball, hockey and volleyball seasons are just getting started, and birthday party packages are also available.
