Mayhem fans reserve tickets a year in advance

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – There’s nothing like hockey in the south. 

The Macon Mayhem will bring the sport back to middle Georgia about a year from now, but the team is already selling tickets. 

Sales began Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Centreplex.  Around lunch, between 50 and 60 accounts had already been opened, according to team president Mark Richards. 

Not bad for a team a year away from hitting the ice.

The Mayhem will play in the Southern Professional Hockey League against teams like the Columbus Cottonmouths and the Huntsville Havoc. The SPHL opened its season Friday.

“It’s good and bad, because now we’re a year away,” Richards says.  “That’s going to go real fast for us here in office work and trying to get things set up.  It was fun watching the games last night and following them and we look forward to competing against those cities next year.”

The team is talking with several corporate sponsors and is also in the process of hiring a head coach.
