The Halifax Rainmen make their home pre-season debut tonight, but unless you can pull some strings there’s not a ticket to be found.
The 9,600 complimentary tickets Rogers Communications donated for the Halifax Rainmen’s Premier Basketball League exhibition opener have all been scooped up, which will lead to an electric atmosphere at tonight’s contest at the Metro Centre.
Halifax is facing its first-ever Maritime rival, the Saint John Mill Rats, who played last season in Manchester, N.H.
The Rainmen begin the regular season Jan. 2. For complete details on the Rainmen, go to rainmenbasketball.ca.
