The New York Islanders announced on Wednesday that the team will play in their Orange and Blue scrimmage no Thursday, July 11 at 7 p.m. at Nassau Coliseum. Fans will have the opportunity to see the franchises top prospects compete in the game along with participating in a post-game skills competition-which will also feature a prospect shootout.
Tickets to the Orange and Blue scrimmage go on sale on Thursday, June 20 at 9:30 a.m. Fans can visit www.newyorkislanders.com to purchase tickets, which are $10, with all proceeds going to the Islanders Children’s Foundation.
Season ticket holders will have exclusive VIP access throughout the event. Access includes preferential seating along the glass, meet and greet opportunities and the ability to high five the players as they enter and exit the ice.
Doors for this summer’s scrimmage are scheduled to open at 6 p.m. If you can’t make it to the Scrimmage never fear as MSG Varity will stream the game live on the team’s website.
The scrimmage will be helping to raise funds for the Islanders Children’s Foundation, which was founded in 2003 to provide opportunities to children in areas of education, health and youth hockey development. The ICF has raised over $5 million, assisting thousands of children and their families on Long Island as well as around the world.
