Winnipeg Jets season ticket-holders will have a chance to snag seats to the Heritage Classic starting next week.

Pre-sale to the annual outdoor regular season NHL game officially opens June 15 at 9 a.m. CT and runs until 5 p.m. CT on June 24, True North Sports and Entertainment announced Friday. The tickets will be sold as an event package, which will include tickets to the Heritage Classic and NHL Alumni Game.

Only season ticket holders are eligible for the pre-sale, but they're only allowed to buy the amount of tickets for the number of seats they hold during a typical Jets season. The NHL will release any unsold pre-sale tickets at a later date, True North said.

Tickets to both games run from $185 to $669.

In March, the NHL announced the game would take place in Winnipeg for the first time between the Jets and the Edmonton Oilers.

The game will take place at Investors Group Field on the University of Manitoba campus on Oct. 23. The alumni game, which will include the likes of Teemu Selanne and Wayne Gretzky, takes place Oct. 22.
