On Sunday night the Hershey Bears will celebrate their affiliation with the defending Stanley Cup Champions. Not only will they have the Stanley Cup on hand, but they will also wear specialty jerseys for Capitals Night at Giant Center.
The Stanley Cup® will be in Hershey on Sunday, October 7 as the Bears host the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. The puck drops at 5 PM that evening for Washington Capitals Night, as they celebrate their NHL affiliate’s championship by welcoming one of the oldest and most revered trophies in professional sports.
Fans who have a ticket for the October 7 game will have an opportunity to have their photo taken with the Stanley Cup®, and there will be a special session for Season Ticket Holders prior to doors opening. In order to accommodate as many fans as possible for this high-demand event, the guidelines below have been established.
- A complimentary digital photo with the Stanley Cup® will be provided. Once in line, the only photos permitted with the Stanley Cup® are those provided by the professional photographer. No photos from individual cameras or cell phones will be allowed.
- In order to gain access to the Stanley Cup® line, all guests must enter through the main doors of Giant CenterSM. All guests will be subject to security procedures and checks.
- One photo per person, group or individual. In order to accommodate as many guests as possible, if in line with a group, a group photo will be required. For example, a family of four in line will be required to take one group photo together. Individual pictures with the Stanley Cup® for each member of a group will not be permitted due to time concerns.
- Due to popular demand, a photo with the Stanley Cup® is not guaranteed. The Bears, the NHL, and the Giant Center staff will do their best to accommodate as many guests as possible. To assist with this process, fans are encouraged to attend the appropriate designated time slot, arrive early, and follow all direction of staff members on site. Once a cutoff time is designated during the 3rd period, no further guests will be allowed in line.
Time slots for photos with the Stanley Cup® have been designated as follows:
11 AM – 12 PM: Club/ Suite Holders/Corporate Partners
12 PM – 3:30 PM: Season Ticket Holders (All plans)
