MOLINE, Ill. (December 19, 2012) – The Quad City Mallards announced today that they have entered into an agreement for the remainder of the 2012-13 season with Cosmos Sports. The agreement is a strategic partnership that includes sales and marketing consulting, revenue generation training, creative marketing and managing the team's ticket sales operation's campaign and strategy.

"We are looking forward to Cosmos Sports helping out the Mallards sales efforts this season," said Bob Hoffman, Director of Operations with the CHL. "Cary and his crew have a proven track record of success and we are thrilled to have them involved with our young staff in the Quad Cities".

Cosmos Sports is one of the premier names in sports marketing with clients from the National Hockey League, Major League Soccer, Canadian Football League, American Hockey League and National Lacrosse League to name a few. CHL teams such as the Wichita Thunder and Allen Americans have worked with Cosmos Sports in the past. To learn more about Cosmos Sports, visit www.cosmossports.com.

The Mallards next play at home this Friday night and again Saturday evening against the Tulsa Oilers. Both games face off at 7:05 p.m. Friday night's game will feature mascot Mo Mallard's Toast to the End of the World during the third period in recognition of the ancient Mayan prophecy predicting the end of days on December 21. In addition, in preparation for the end times, Mo will be clearing out his vast underground bunker and thus providing a wide variety of Mallards prizes old, new and in between that will be given away at that game.

Tickets for this weekend's games- and for all remaining Mallards regular season home games- can be purchased in person at the i wireless Center ticket office, at Ticketmaster outlets, through www.ticketmaster.com or through Ticketmaster charge-by-phone toll free at 1-800-745-3000. The ticket office is open weekdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and on game days from 10:00 a.m. until the start of the second period.

The Mallards' new Partial Punch Plan is also still available. The Partial Punch Plan provides flexibility and affordability- each Punch Plan punch card can be redeemed for ten tickets- whether those tickets are for ten different games, all for the same game or anything in between- subject to availability. Partial Punch Plans can be had for as little as $70 for youth 12 and under. For more ticket package information, fans can call the Mallards at 309-277-1364.
