CNNC Hockey Deal 2018-19!

CNNC and the Carolina Hurricanes have partnered up again this year to offer Canadians in The Triangle some discounted hockey tickets. 

 

The format has changed for this year based on a new approach to fill PNC Arena. CNNC will have discount prices for all the Canadian visiting teams plus other non Canadian games. The Hurricanes organization will only add the games into the CNNC Canes site  about two months in advance. Don’t worry! The site will eventually include the 8 games against Canadian teams listed below. As usual, you can purchase up to a total of 9 tickets directly through this site. Contact Brian Kapusta at 919-861-5452 for 10 tickets or more. 

To purchase tickets, visit www.canesgroups.com/cnnc
