“We are excited to announce our first half-time performer and we couldn’t think of anyone better to get things kicked off than local recording artist Mike Biggar,” said Riptide CEO, Scott VanWart. The Riptide home opener is scheduled for 7PM on December 27th at Harbour Station against the Island Storm.
“Our volunteer executive team has been working extremely hard for a number of months now to deliver a new high energy family entertainment experience and we think that this is a great step in that direction” continued VanWart.
Mr Biggar had the following to say “It is brilliantly exciting to see a professional basketball team like the Saint John Riptide take off in our city, and just like so many things happening in Saint John the measure of enthusiasm among the public for the new team is enormous! So it is a genuine pleasure to be invited as an entertainer to get in on the ground floor of spreading the excitement at this very first kickoff game on December 27th at Harbour Station!”.
In addition to high quality half time entertainment the team plans to add a number of contests and promotions throughout the season that will keep fans on their toes and excited all night long. Season, Flex, and single game tickets are available at the Harbour Station box office now.
“We are working hard to build something special for the city of Saint John, and we know that our city will respond” VanWart said. “Expectations are high for the team and there will be more great news coming in the very near future.”
