The Phantoms will play in Philadelphia one final time.
A scheduled contest between the Adirondack Phantoms and the Norfolk Admirals on December 4 has been moved from the Glens Falls Civic Center to the Wachovia Center in South Philadelphia. Game time is 7 PM. According to Tim McManus of the Glens Falls Post-Star, the Flyers have begun sending out emails to fans announcing the move.
It has to be assumed that Phantoms season ticket holders knew about this prior to purchasing their tickets. This is great news for now-displaced Phantoms fans in the Delaware Valley, but as an Adirondack season ticket holder, I don't think I'd be too happy about a game being moved after I already bought tickets to the event.
As for the team, the move to Philly looks like it will cause some travel fatigue. They will be in Lowell, MA on Wednesday the 2nd, Philadelphia on Friday the 4th, back to Glens Falls on the 5th, and the to Springfield, MA on the 6th. Typical AHL scheduling, for sure, but the added trip to Philly is probably just an extra headache for the players.
According to the Phantoms, tickets will be $10 for children, and adult tickets range from $14 to $33. They are available now at ComcastTIX.com.
