What’s this Border Bid, you ask? It’s the first regular season game between Vancouver and Seattle, and it takes place at a neutral location to give fans from both sides of the border a chance to come out and cheer on their favorites.

Every tradition has a beautiful beginning, and what better time and place than now to start this one? And who better to cut the ribbon than League Commissioner Jeff Snader? That’s right, Commissioner Snader himself is making the trip all the way to the West Coast to commemorate the occasion.

This year’s Border Bid coincides with Spring Reign, and we’re rolling out some sweet deals for fans to take advantage of.

Spring Reign Team Discount

For only $120, get all the players on your roster plus up to two chaperones into the game. That’s a 50% discount! Tickets will be delivered to the team in person on Saturday at Spring Reign before the last round of play. Claim your tickets here.
