Independence offers free Mavericks and Comets tickets

Updated: 2013-10-11T00:52:50Z

Independence residents have a chance to win two tickets to a regular season hockey or soccer game this season at the Independence Events Center.

The Missouri Mavericks hockey team starts its home season on Nov. 2, and the Missouri Comets soccer club has its home opener on Nov. 16.

This year, the tickets can be picked up at the events center box office rather than City Hall. Previously some winners had difficulty obtaining them when City Hall was open.

Winners must have a valid photo ID and proof of residency, such as a utility bill, to pick up the tickets.

Residents 18 and older can register for the tickets at www.independencemo.org. Click on the “Win Tickets” button. Contest rules are on the website.

Entrants may select any number of games and will be included in the drawing for each game — until they win. Winners will be randomly selected by computer 10 days before each game. They will be notified by telephone or email.
