Arizona Coyotes Fan Fest at Gila River Arena set for Sept. 7
Captain Oliver Ekman-Larsson, newcomer Phil Kessel and leading scorer Clayton Keller and others will all be available to interact with fans at the Arizona Coyotes Fan Fest on Sept. 7.
The team announced on Tuesday that they will host the free event open to the public from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Gila River Arena.
Coyotes Fan Fest will feature selfie stations, autograph sessions, ball hockey games, an inflatable slap shot station, air hockey, bubble hockey, photo opportunities and an esports station throughout the Arena.
Along with Ekman-Larsson, Kessel and Keller, other Coyotes are expected to join in on the fun. Michael Grabner, Antti Raanta, Darcy Kuemper, Brad Richardson, Alex Goligoski and Jakob Chychrun, as well as broadcasters Matt McConnell, Tyson Nash and Paul Bissonnette are expected to attend.
“I think it’s going to be a great time,” team president and CEO Ahron Cohen said. “It’s a great time for people to get out of the heat and get ready for our Coyotes season. A great opportunity for families to come out and play ball hockey, get to meet the players, take selfies. Then we’re going to do a lot of Q&A sessions. I’m leading it off and then I’m going to put everybody to sleep, and then they’ll be able to hear the players talk afterwards.”
The Fanatics Coyotes Den team store will be fully stocked for the event with the newest Coyotes apparel and Levy Restaurants will be featuring some of their newest food items for the upcoming season.
Free tickets for the event can be downloaded on the Coyotes website using the promo code: FANFEST.
