When the Windsor Express square up against the St. John Riptide on April 8th Amherstburg will also be in the spotlight.

The Express has teamed up Amherstburg Community Services to spread the word about the game and to support services in the area.

“Every time we take to the court, our team represents more than just the city of Windsor,” Willis Sr. said. “We think it’s vital that we recognize the communities outside the city, and that’s what we hope to do on April 8th. The municipalities all share an identity; we’re all part of what makes Windsor-Essex a great place to be, and we want to make a point that we are the team for all of Essex County,” said Windsor Express owner Darcy Willis Sr.

Tip off for the game is at 7pm at the WFCU Centre on April 8, 2017.

Tickets will be sold in Amherstburg for only $5 each for general admission. $25 court-side tickets will also be available, with $15 from each of those ticket sales being donated back to Amherstburg Community Services. Tickets can be purchased at Amherstburg Community Services’ main office at 179 Victoria Street South. A

CS will also be providing a $17.00 round-trip shuttle service from their office to the game for county residents interested in attending. Those interested can call ACS at 519-736-5471 or contact Windsor Express through their website, www.windsorexpress.ca for more information.
