It might be summer, but we know it won’t be long before hockey-starved fans start counting down the days until their home team hits the ice. And with Jets games being so much more than what happens on the ice; Jets fans there’s a lot to be excited for in 2023-24.
Taking in a Winnipeg Jets game is about being part of a broader fan community. Connecting with friends on the concourse, and taking in all the complementary sights, sounds and entertainment from on-ice projection to DJs, the pre-game parties and more.
There’s even more to look forward to in off-ice entertainment as the Jets have loaded up their 2023-24 schedule with promo nights that will give fans the chance to both celebrate and give back to the community.
