August 14, 2013, Charlottetown, PEI (ISN) – UPEI Athletics and Recreation has launched the 2013–14 Panthers Season Pass program. Season Passes are now available for Men’s/Women’s Soccer, Women’s Rugby, Men’s Hockey, Women’s Hockey, and Men’s/Women’s Basketball.

All teams have been busy preparing for the upcoming season, and have bolstered rosters with a strong combination of incoming and returning student-athletes. This year, UPEI is proud to host the AUS (W) Rugby Championship October 26–27 and the AUS (W) Basketball Championship March 7–9.

New this year is a youth rate, non-UPEI student rate, and the availability of a family game ticket and season pass. This new offering is an affordable way for families to take in a Panthers game and to provide young people an opportunity to get to know and watch UPEI student-athletes.

In 2012–13, the Panthers excelled both on and off the playing surfaces with 14 AUS All-Stars, 4 AUS All-Rookie Team Members, 3 CIS All Canadians. For the 2011–12 season, 57 were named CIS Academic All-Canadians. Team highlights included playoff visits by Men’s/Women’s Soccer, Men’s Basketball, and Men’s/Women’s Hockey. With a strong recruitment effort, the 2013–14 season promises to reach even greater heights as teams pursue AUS and CIS championships.

Revenues from season pass sales go directly to the teams to support costs and to fund Athletic Financial Awards for student-athletes.

Season pass renewals have begun and now are open to the greater public for purchase by either visiting Panther Central at the Chi-Wan Young Sports Centre, calling 566-0368, or e-mailing panthercentral@upei.ca. For more information, visit www.gopanthersgo.ca.
