No matter what time of the year it is, there’s always something fun or interesting going on in Kingston. There are online auctions and music concerts to raise money for local charities, the chance to try out a new fitness regime for free, opportunities to nominate people or businesses who make our city a better place to live, and more.
And now this month, hockey fans will have another reason to be excited when the Kingston Frontenacs launch the 2019-20 season with a Home Opener vs the Oshawa Generals this Friday, September 20 at the Leon’s Centre.
From The Archives: While waiting for the 2019-20 Home Opener, check out this game when the Frontenacs and Generals went head-to-head in 2014:
But how is it that you become the ultimate Frontenacs fan? It’s not that difficult at all..
Get Your Game Face On
As entertaining as hockey is, a smart fan also knows that it can be very lucrative.
Many leading bookmakers carry odds for OHL matches and, depending on your analysis of the game; it is an excellent way to support the team by placing a bet on it. However, if you enjoying playing the big league, there is always the possibility to read up on NHL hockey betting odds and make wagers on an international level.
Bookmakers often release advanced odds for major NHL games, and it is worth picking them up for bigger profit. Betting on your team is more than about having confidence in their ability, it is also about making the game more thrilling and, of course, earning from it.
Get Your Tickets
Yes, it may be possible to catch a Frontenacs game live-streamed, and watch from the comfort of your home, but a real fan would go out of his or her way to get tickets for the Leon’s Centre to see the game in person . The level of excitement at a live game is an unmatched feeling, one that comes with a sense of togetherness and the opportunity to watch the players up close and personal. Not to mention, you might be lucky enough to get a puck or shirt signed by your favourite player.
It’s interesting to see how the team’s jersey means different things to different people. When we look at the psychology of a sports fan, superstition plays a big role. Many fans believe in wearing the same winning team jersey to every match, and at times they won’t even wash it.
Others consider it an extension of support for the team – being in the arena, it is a great way to announce to those around you that Kingston Frontenacs is your team. Wearing the team’s jersey depicts commitment and pride, something that every team player expects from their fans.
Bring Along the Family
If you really want to be an ultimate Frontenacs fan, don’t follow them alone. Just as Kingston is all about the community, watching a game should also be a family and friends affair. Make a fun, sporty day out of it and go to the arena with kids in tow, or invite friends over on game day. Remember, the bigger the group, the better it gets.
