The defending Clark Cup champion Sioux Falls Stampede officially kick off the season TONIGHT (Saturday) when they host the Lincoln Stars at 7:05 PM inside the PREMIER Center. Family fun is planned for the whole evening. Click here to purchase tickets online now!


Join the Stampede for some fun before the game just outside the Birdcage. There will be inflatables, yard games, a hockey shootout and more for kids of all ages! This event is free an open to the public so bring the kids and have fun with fellow members of Stampede Country.


Be amongst the first 1,000 fans through the doors and receive a free commemorative Stampede Clark Cup championship puck, courtesy of Dental Solutions. These pucks will not be available anywhere else and are not for sale, so be sure to arrive early to take home a part of Stampede history!


Doors open at 6 PM and there will be fun for everyone as you enter. Be on the lookout for free face painting and animal balloons for kids in the concourse. Kids of all ages can take part in a special Clark Cup themed scavenger hunt all over the PREMIER Center. Kids can turn in their completed form to the Stampede sales table for a special prize and register for a chance to win a Stampede loge suite for an upcoming game.


Make sure you are in your seats by 7 PM as the Stampede raise up their 2018-19 Clark Cup championship banner into the PREMIER Center rafters. The pre-game ceremony will include the Clark Cup and the introduction of the entire 2019-20 Sioux Falls Stampede team.


The Stampede square off against Western Conference rival Lincoln on the PREMIER Center ice. The Stampede have a lot of new faces, but some of the best talent in the USHL and will square off against a tough and talented Lincoln team in the first of seven contests during the season.


Bring your skates to the game and hit the ice with the Stampede team immediately following the game. Fans can skate and get autographs with their favorite players on the ice. Please note that the PREMIER Center does not rent skates so please bring your own. For non-skating fans, several Stampede players will be made available in the main lobby for autographs.
