Glasgow Clan has revealed they have "smashed" their season ticket sales record.

It comes after the hockey team sold almost 1,600 tickets by the end of June - one month after they went on sale.

Compared to 2022, the clan only sold 1,400 season passes in the same period.

The club, who play in the Braehead Arena, said the record-breaking achievement comes only weeks after they began an exciting new era. They were taken over by sports TV entrepreneur Michael O'Rourke's company, TDL Media.

Gareth Chalmers, Glasgow Clan managing director, said: “We’ve got new owners, a new Head Coach and some great new signings already announced with more to come, so we’re definitely heading into a new era for the clan.

“Our Purple Army fans seem to be just as excited about this as we at the club are. Fans who have already bought their season tickets obviously don’t want to miss a puck being dropped, great goals being scored and the thrill of a full-blown body check to an opponent when we clash with our rivals.

“We expect many of our games this season to be sell-outs and the only way of guaranteeing your seat at these matches is to get a season ticket.

“There’s not long to go before the end of Our Early Bird offer of reduced prices for season tickets for the exciting campaign ahead.”

Jason Morgan, Clan head coach and Head of Hockey Operations, added: “The support shown to me and the organisation in the last few weeks has been nothing short of breathtaking.

“Seeing the season tickets bought in the way they have shows the passion the fans have for this team and I’m enjoying what the Purple Army are bringing to us already.

“I feel it’s important we show our appreciation and thank them for their excellent support so far in buying the season tickets.

“They are really getting behind the team before we’ve dropped a puck and I can’t wait to hear the noise and feel the energy from the stands in September.”
