Xpress Season Ticket Drive Under Way

The Southern Tier Xpress of the NA3HL have announced its season-ticket drive campaign, 500 in 86.

The Xpress home opener will be on Sept. 6 at 5 p.m. against the Pittsburgh Vengeance.

The Xpress, in its inaugural season, is looking to make a lasting impression in the Southern Tier region, Chautauqua County and the city of Jamestown, as well as the junior hockey world.

“It has been our goal to bring exciting, affordable junior hockey back to the region,” Xpress general manager Brian Cersosimo said. “With this season-ticket drive, we hope to show the players that we want to help them in their development as a person and a player. Having a packed house to play in front of is a great start.”
