“The Five will also be hosting team autograph sessions following every Sunday game so bring your Five gear and cheer on the Kings of the Underground,” the team said in a news release. Kids 10 and under will receive admission for all home games this year for only $10.
“We are very excited to unveil our full theme schedule for the 2023 season,” said Miranda Boivin, SWSE marketing manager, in a news release. “We worked hard to have a variety of different themes that will have something for everyone. Some themes will pay tribute and appreciation to some of the core foundations of our ommunity, such as the mining industry while other themes will be more targeted to giving back to community.
“With these themes, we hope to make our fans feel like they are apart of the team with autograph sessions, meet and greets, and more opportunities for fan and player interactions. We are looking forward to another unbelievable season of Sudbury Five basketball.”
