About the BSTBC


The Bridgeport Sound Tigers Booster Club is celebrating its thirteenth year. A membership fee is collected annually. Monthly meetings feature guest speakers and are usually held the third Tuesday of the month. Each member receives a Membership card, pin, and a free monthly newsletter Tiger Tales.

To help our players and coaches get acquainted to the area we fill a welcome bag with information, coupons, and goodies and assist them in finding services they may need while they live in our community.

Road trips are also sponsored in order to provide support to our team on the road. While the team is on the road we supply them with food for their bus ride. We host visiting Booster Club members when they visit the arena and all members are welcome to attend the annual AAHLBC Convention.

The booster club hosts two big events during the season that includes the entire team. This year we are having a Sound Tiger Meet and Greet on November 11th at the Riverview Bistro in Stratford. During this fun evening, members will be able to introduce themselves to the players and the players will get to know who is cheering for them in the stands. Save April 14th for our Award Dinner. During this special night we will acknowledge each player and the hard work they put in during the season.

The Booster Club assists the front office with supplying volunteers to help hand out promotional material at home games and welcome fans to the Arena.

During each game the Booster Club has a table set up on the concourse. Fundraising items from player pins, spirit bracelets, Sound Tiger dog tags, and other hockey memorabilia is sold and raffled off from the table.

Because of these offers we have been able to donate over $160,000 in the last twelve years to very special charitable organizations. The Booster Club has supported the Ronald McDonald House, PT Barnum Pediatric Center, the Umbrella Group, American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, International Rett Syndrome Foundation, CdL Foundation, Community Closet, and the New York Islanders Children’s Foundation.

This season we will help raise money for the Arena Angels Foundation. This organization will provide underprivileged children and groups in need with the unique opportunity to attend live events at the Webster Bank Arena.

Along with these wonderful charities we also support the Siberian Tigers at the Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport.

The most visible way the Bridgeport Sound Tiger Booster Club shows their support to the Sound Tigers is by letting them know we are there when they are on the ice — with our voices!
