HarbourCats unveil 2023 season schedule

For Immediate Release

November 15, 2022

VICTORIA, B.C. — Opening the season at home, and three July weekend home series highlight the 2023 schedule for the Victoria HarbourCats, as the West Coast League has revealed next summer’s dates.

“It’s always an exciting day to tell our fans when we get back on the field, and the sooner we can get this information out the better,” said Jim Swanson, Managing Partner/GM of the HarbourCats. “We’d like to see the schedule out even earlier to give us more time to plan out all the events we’re proud to host at Wilson’s Group Stadium at Royal Athletic Park, as we’re known for being much more than just a collection of baseball games and we take pride in getting those details in place.”

The HarbourCats will open the 2023 season at home against the second-year Kamloops NorthPaws on Friday, June 2, and highlights include the Father’s Day weekend against the Yakima Valley Pippins, a Canada day three-game set against the HarbourCats 2022 playoff opponents, the Bellingham Bells, and three full weekend (Friday-Saturday-Sunday) series in July.

The regular season concludes on the road in Edmonton Sunday, August 6, with playoffs slated to start on Tuesday, August 8.

Three, always popular fireworks nights are scheduled this season, on Saturday, June 3rd, Friday, June 30th and Saturday, July 29th, while School Spirit Day with Mayfair Optometric Clinic is slated for Wednesday, June 7 at 11:05 am.  Other special dates such as Harvey’s Birthday, Bark in the Park, and Jersey Off Our Backs with Odlum Brown will be confirmed and properly announced at a later date.  Four non-league games are also planned against the returning Redmond Dudes and Coquitlam Angels.

Single-game tickets ARE NOT YET ON SALE, but are expected to be available both on-line and in person at the HarbourCats office starting December 1, 2022.  At that time, 10-game flex pack vouchers will be eligible to be exchanged for games in the 2023 season. Season tickets and 10-game flex passes ARE currently on sale and can be purchased at the HarbourCats office. As above though, flex-pack vouchers can not be exchanged for 2023 games until single-game tickets go on sale.

2022 Season Ticket holders are asked to renew their season tickets if they have not already done so prior to single-game tickets going on sale in order to lock in their preferred seat selection for all 31 2023 games.  New season tickets and 10-game flex packs are also now on sale.

If you have any questions about the 2023 schedule or 2023 ticket sales, please contact the office at 778-265-0327 or e-mail
