  • Friday, Sept. 8 @ Tri-City at 7 p.m.

Before playing in any pre-season games, the Rebels will first face each other in a Black and White game on Wednesday, Aug. 30 at the Centrium at 7 p.m. Admission is $2 at the door in support of the Red Deer Firefighters Children’s Charity.

Rebels fans will get their first taste of regular season action Sept. 23, as Red Deer hosts the Edmonton Oil Kings in the Red Deer Advocate Home Opener.
