Victoria Royals close out the season Saturday with Fan Appreciation Night


The finish line of a long season is upon us, and the Victoria Royals are inviting you for one last hurrah at Fan Appreciation Night.

The Royals will host the Everett Silvertips for their final home game of the season at 6:05 p.m. this Saturday, March 25th.

The Silvertips are the perfect visitor for tonight’s game, a team hovering around .500 who’s found wins in just 3 of their last 10 games. Truth be told, they seem ripe for an upset.

Come help will the Royals to victory with a raucous atmosphere and a memorable ending as we send the squad off into the summer!

Bring the fam for Fan Appreciation Night

Tonight’s game is about you, the fans.

After supporting the boys in black n blue all year long, you’ve all earned a stick tap and an applause for stickin’ it out with the squad this season.

Fans can purchase $10 tickets, enjoy both a live DJ and jersey auction, or park the bus in the beer garden and enjoy a nice, cold pint. Care for some garlic fries with that?

There’s also a complimentary BBQ (first come, first serve), Item Bag giveaways, and games and activities for all ages including balloon artists and face painting. The first 500 fans will be given free tickets to the Victoria Harbourcats this summer, and photo opportunities with Harvey the Harbourcat.
