The Detroit Red Wings today announced details surrounding the team’s regular season Home Opener, presented by Coca-Cola and Meijer, on Thursday, Oct. 4, against the Columbus Blue Jackets at 7:30 p.m. at the award-winning Little Caesars Arena (FOX Sports Detroit / 97.1 The Ticket).
Prior to the game, the Red Wings will hold the third annual Hockeytown Red Carpet Walk, in which current players and alumni walk a red carpet through Chevrolet Plaza to enter Little Caesars Arena prior to the game, giving fans an opportunity to cheer on the team up close before the puck drops on the 2018-19 season. Before, during and after the Hockeytown Red Carpet Walk, Chevrolet Plaza and the plaza outside the Meijer entrance will host a pregame party featuring interactive games, live music and food and drinks for both ticketed and non-ticketed guests.
Fans in attendance at the Home Opener will also have the opportunity to purchase exclusive Hockeytown merchandise and Official Matchup Pucks at the Little Caesars Arena Team Store, collect giveaway items, experience the immersive opening show announcing the 2018-19 Red Wings roster and much more. Additionally, in conjunction with the Home Opener and running through Nov. 30, Red Wings fans can win exciting prizes through the new augmented reality experience within The District Detroit mobile app, presented by Coca-Cola.
