The 2018 Capital BlueCross Outdoor Classic comes exactly five years after Hershey last hosted an outdoor game. On January 20, 2013, Hershey celebrated its 75th anniversary season by hosting the 2013 Capital BlueCross AHL Outdoor Classic at Hersheypark Stadium. In front of 17,311 fans, Hershey fell to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, 2-1, in overtime. This is the third outdoor game in which Hershey has participated, and the second time Hershey has battled the Phantoms outdoors. The Bears played the Adirondack Phantoms at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia on January 6, 2012 in front of an AHL record 45,653 fans. The Bears fell in overtime in that contest, 4-3.

Hershey’s historic 80th Anniversary Season starts in October, with the club opening up the home portion of the schedule versus Belleville on Saturday, Oct. 14 at Giant Center. Information on full season tickets, 22-game and 12-game plans and flex-10 ticket plans for the 2017-2018 Hershey Bears season are available now by calling (717) 508-BEAR or by visiting HersheyBears.com.
