Springfield Thunderbirds’ promotional schedule includes Stanley from ‘The Office,' Brian Scalabrine, Roberto Luongo and much more
The Springfield Thunderbirds have officially announced their promotional schedule for the 2019-20 season, bringing back several mainstay events while introducing new events that should entice fans to the MassMutual Center all season.
“We as staff look to set a high bar when it comes to meeting our fans’ expectations,” Thunderbirds president Nathan Costa said. “After sealing names such as David Ortiz and Pedro Martinez for past events, we wanted to try and go to that level again. The main figure that we recently pushed at was Rob Gronkowski, but unfortunately at this point, it wasn’t financially feasible. So after that attempt, we decided to take that one-night investment and spread it across four nights to give the fans more value this year.”
Those four nights are now: Roberto Luongo Night (Saturday, Nov. 2 at 7:05 p.m.), The Office Holiday Party featuring Stanley AKA Leslie David Baker (Saturday, Dec. 14 at 7:05 p.m.), “What If?” Night (Saturday, Feb. 1 at 7:05 p.m.) and Celtic Night featuring Brian Scalabrine (Saturday, March 14 at 7:05 p.m.).
The season begins with the team’s home opener on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 7:05 p.m. against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. Fans are encouraged to attend the Thunderbirds’ Fourth-Annual Opening Night Block Party presented by Community Bank at downtown’s Court Square to enjoy live music, food, and beverages between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
