When it comes to sporting events, you’ll likely never come across anything similar to a National Lacrosse League game.
Widely known as ‘the fastest sport on two feet’, the scoring is high, the hits are huge, the music pumps the entirety of the game, and the fans are crazy loud.
In short – no one puts on a show quite like the Calgary Roughnecks.
The in-game experience at the Rough House is unparalleled.
That’s for both the fans, and the players.
“The atmosphere is absolutely electric,” said Roughnecks forward Rhys Duch.
“The biggest thing I’ve noticed is that it gets so loud during games that we, the players, can actually feel it in our feet on the turf, the ground shakes – it’s just crazy.
“The city loves this team, and when they get in the building and everybody is together cheering it’s just awesome.”
With tickets starting at just $21.00*, it’s the most affordable best night of your life. Pair the ticket pricing with $5 happy hour food and drink specials (yes, a beer at the Saddledome for $5!) every home game, the value for the experience is unrivaled.
“It’s not like any other sport,” Duch said. “The crowds are large, but you don’t have to pay 100 bucks to go to a game. You can pay 20 bucks and have the time of your life; it’s just an amazing three hours.”
There’s an incredible party in the stands every game, but the on-floor product is captivating, too.
Established in 2001, the Roughnecks are one of the NLL’s premier lacrosse clubs, and are coming off a championship last season. The players’ skill, physicality, and athleticism will blow you away – even if you’re not 100% on the rules of the game.
“The way I’d describe Roughnecks games to people is you don’t have to be a lacrosse fan, or even a sports fan to appreciate it,” Duch said.
“I think a lot of people have reservations when they’re going to watch something they don’t recognize or aren’t familiar with. But it’s going to be exciting no matter who you are or what your knowledge of lacrosse is.
“It’s easy to have fun, and it’s easy to be comfortable with what you’re watching. The basics of the game are to score more than the other team. If you start there you’re going to have a good time.”
After your first game, you’ll be hooked, we guarantee it.
We can’t wait to have you Come for the Party and Stay for the Game this season!
