Due to road conditions throughout the state, The Spokane Chiefs game against the Seattle Thunderbirds at the Arena on Wednesday is postponed.

“The safety of the players and team staff is paramount and with the road conditions the way they are between Seattle and Spokane, both teams came to the conclusion that tonight’s game will be postponed,” said Scott Carter, the Chiefs General Manager.

Several roads between Spokane and Kent, Washington (where the Thunderbirds are based out of) are in poor condition, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation. The Snoqualmie Pass on Interstate-90 is currently closed in both directions.

The game is rescheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 24 at 7:05 p.m. at the Arena.

Tickets for Wednesday’s game will be accepted for the rescheduled date. Tickets can be exchanged for those fans who cannot attend at the Chiefs’ ticket office on the southeast corner of the Arena.
