Stettler Minor Football to hold their discount card Blitz Night

Athletes from Stettler Minor Football Association will be canvassing the town selling their discount cards in their annual Blitz Night on Sept. 27.

Members of the Stettler Wildcats, Stettler Cougars, Stettler Panthers and Stettler Bobcats will all be participating in the canvas this year, selling the $25 key fobs.

According to organizer Jodi McCord, 53 vendors are participating in the discount program for the 2022/2023 season which is “an amazing deal.”

Funds raised through the sale of the key fobs are used to run the Stettler’s football program.

The funds are used for bussing to away games, a “large cost” according to McCord, team meals at home games, equipment, league costs and other expenses that come up through the season.

McCord says that unlike some other sports, Stettler’s football programs provide all the equipment for players participating which can also be a significant expense.

The players will be out canvassing all around Stettler between 5 and 9 p.m. on Sept. 27.

Also, be sure to check out the Stettler Wildcats first home game of the season on Sept. 23 with a 7:30 p.m. kickoff.
