North America might have the Big 4 when it comes to professional sports, but here in Niagara we have the Big 3. 

And what happens when you bring together the Niagara River Lions of the Canadian Elite Baseball League (CEBL), the Niagara IceDogs of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), and the Welland Jackfish of the Intercounty Baseball League (IBL)?

You get the Ultimate Niagara Fan Pack, just in time for the 2022 holiday season.

The ticket package includes a pair of mid-level tickets for each of the region’s premier sports teams for $100. It will be available until Dec. 23. A portion of ticket sales will be donated to The Richard Robinson Prescott Court Innovation Foundation.

“We are thrilled to bring this unique ticket offering to sports fans across the region,” said package founder and River Lions’ vice-president of operations, Michelle Biskup.

“We understand the importance of community and we know that working together only helps our organizations succeed.”

The IceDogs were once again proud to collaborate with their Niagara sporting partners. 

“The IceDogs are very excited to once again team up with the River Lions and Jackfish organizations to help showcase their talented athletes, and of course to unite the passionate fans of Niagara’s great sports teams,” Elijah DiDomenico, IceDogs’ manager of ticket sales, said.

For the Welland Jackfish, it’s all about the fans.

“We are very excited for the opportunity to partner with such world-class organizations and provide an amazing experience for fans, all while giving back to the community,” said Ryan Harrison, the Jackfish’s president and Director of Fun. 

“The Jackfish can’t wait to welcome River Lions’ and IceDogs’ fans to The Pond for a summer of fun.”

And all three organizations are delighted to give back to the community by supporting a local charity during the holiday season.

“We are very grateful for the support of the Niagara River Lions, Niagara IceDogs, and the Welland Jackfish,” said Suzanne Court, founder and president of the Richard Robinson Prescott Court Innovation Foundation. 

“Our holiday wish is for others to recognize the need to support our youth which creates a stronger community.”

The RRPC Innovation Foundation supports youth in the Niagara community through donations to not for profits and charities that support youth in the areas of education, nutrition, sports, advocacy and mental health.
