Springfield Thunderbirds AHL Opening Night
October 16, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm EDT
For the second straight time, the Thunderbirds will open the regular season slate on home ice, seeking their fifth straight Opening Night sellout crowd as they host the Hartford Wolf Pack on Saturday, Oct. 16 at 7:05 p.m. Prior to game action, the T-Birds will host the Community Bank N.A. Pregame Block Party, with support from the Springfield BID, featuring a live music performance by Trailer Trash. Food and drink refreshments will be available starting at 4:00 p.m.
When the action heads inside to the MassMutual Center, the fans in attendance will receive T-Birds rally towels and magnet schedules. This being the first season with the new NHL-affiliate, the St. Louis Blues, fans are encouraged to get into their seats by 6:50 p.m. to witness the full team introduction and pregame festivities.
The Thunderbirds are proud to offer free parking inside the Civic Center garage (on a first-come, first-served basis) for all home games.
