For $99, fans receive four premium tickets to one of the two Gladiators games on opening weekend, four premium flex tickets available to any Gladiators game this season at the Infinite Energy Arena and an Atlanta Gladiators hat. 

The two Gladiators games on opening weekend are Fri. Oct. 20 (tickets) and Sat. Oct. 21 (tickets) against the Florida Everblades. The game on Friday is at 7:35 p.m. and the game on Saturday is at 7:05 p.m. An affiliate of the Boston Bruins, the Gladiators play in the ECHL. 

The Gladiators are trying to bounce back after two losses last weekend to the Everblades, who are an affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes. On Fri., Oct. 13, the Gladiators lost 4-3 to the Everblades at the Germain Arena in Estero, FL and on Sat., Oct. 14, the Gladiators lost 3-1 to the Everblades. 

Two Gladiators players currently lead the team in scoring. Defenseman Josh Atkinson and forward Lindsay Sparks lead the team with two points after each having two assists last weekend against the Everblades. Sparks comes to the Gladiators after playing for three teams last year--the Tucson Roadrunners of the American Hockey League, the Rapid City Rush in the ECHL and Bolzano HC in Austria.
