Fans of the Brandon Wheat Kings living in various rural communities outside of Brandon’s city centre will be able to experience a hassle-free, all-inclusive trip to and from a wintertime Wheat Kings game this season.
Beginning with the team’s November 11 showdown against the Lethbridge Hurricanes and occurring eight more times through the March 23 battle with Moose Jaw, Wheat Kings fans in nine different communities surrounding Brandon will be able to punch their ticket to Westoba Place and not have to worry about late-night, winter highway travel or limiting their alcoholic beverage intake at the game.
This ‘Rural Route’ program features a game day ticket and transportation to and from the Keystone Centre for $40. The luxury coaches are equipped with leather seats, hardwood floors, USB ports or 110V outlets, lavatory and many additional features, ensuring a safe and comfortable ride.
Owned by former Wheat Kings head coach David Anning, Compass Coach Lines will be making trips to/from the following nine communities:
November 11 – Neepawa (vs Lethbridge)
November 23 – Virden (vs Swift Current)
December 7 – Souris (vs Medicine Hat)
