Pensacola Ice Flyers Tickets
During the hockey season, you can catch Penscola's local professional ice hockey team, the Ice Flyers, at what is likely one of the few ice hockey arenas that is actually located minutes away from a beach. The SPHL President’s Cup Champions have been entertaining fans since the folding of the ECHL's Pensacola Ice Pilots. The name of the team has a double meaning in that it serves as a tribute to Pensacola's aviation heritage as well as being a nod to the team's original owner who played 11 seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers. Along with being champions, the team helps out with causes in their community while also bringing a competitive spirit to the ice. One example of these elements joining together was when they recently took on first-ranked Fayetteville Marksmen for an Autism Awareness charity game. In that game, they managed to dominate the other team in a 7-2 victory while also raising $25,229 for Autism Pensacola. At the home games, there are several great theme nights throughout the season. If you want to catch the Pensacola Ice Flyers in up-close ice-hockey action, get your tickets at StubHub.
