Victoria, BC – THE HARBOURCATS ARE IN THE PLAYOFFS!
In anticipation of upcoming playoff games next week, Victoria HarbourCats 2023 playoff tickets will go on sale TUESDAY AUGUST 1st at 10:00 AM for any possible games at Wilson’s Group Stadium at Royal Athletic Park.
Tickets will be available on-line at https://harbourcats.com/tickets, or at the office at 101-1814 Vancouver Street. You can also call 778-265-0327. Season Ticket holders and partial season ticket holders will receive free playoff tickets and these will be sent via e-mail (see note below).
Heading into Tuesday’s final SIX games, starting with the Island rivalry with Nanaimo Tuesday night, while the HarbourCats have clinched a playoff spot, the final seeding is not yet determined and there is still a chance for the ‘Cats to win the second half North Division title and clinch home field in the first round.
Whatever transpires, the first possible playoff game in VICTORIA will be EITHER Tuesday, August 8th at 6:35 PM OR Wednesday, August 9th at 6:35 pm. If that first game is WEDNESDAY, there could be a possible second home game on THURSDAY, August 10th at 6:35 PM (this would be game three of the best of three series).
If the first home game is TUESDAY, Playoff Game 2 would then be Saturday, August 12th at 6:35 PM – the North Division Final – assuming we win the first round and retain home field advantage. And if successful there, there is a possibility we would host the WCL Championship Game on Monday August 14th at 6:35pm.
It is tickets for those first two possible home games that are now on-sale on-line at https://harbourcats.com/tickets, or at the HarbourCats offices at 101-1814 Vancouver St. Fans purchasing tickets for this first game (PLAYOFF GAME 1) should ensure they are available on both of these potential dates (August 8th and 9th).
Fans who are truly optimistic can also secure a 4-game playoff pack, the maximum possible playoff games the HarbourCats can play at home, assuming they move on to the semi-finals and finals.
At this point, it appears that the HarbourCats will play the Wenatchee AppleSox in the first round, but confirmation of this will be made via the team’s web page and social media channels – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and their e-mail list and customers should ensure they are responsible for checking these sites for up to date information.
SEASON TICKET HOLDERS PLEASE NOTE! You will receive FREE playoff tickets and these will be sent to you as MOBILE tickets via e-mail. YOU DO NOT NEED TO GO ONLINE TO ORDER! Should you not receive an e-mail with your playoff tickets, or should you prefer paper tickets, please then call the office at 778-265-0327, or come in to confirm and receive a re-print of your seats for Tuesday or Wednesday’s game!
Should the HarbourCats NOT make it beyond the first round of the playoffs, or to the finals, any playoff games purchased over and above those that ARE played, will be credited toward the 2024 HarbourCats season for the purchase of season tickets, 10-game flex packs or individual game tickets once our 2024 schedule is released.
