Once again, the VTRA and the Victoria Royals have joined forces to bring you the best tickets in town. Each game that we have tickets for is a special event onto itself, from Country night in January, to Pink in the rink in February, and Fans appreciation in March. And at only $13.50 per ticket, you won’t find any better price anywhere (same ticket at box office is $16). For more information, click here.
