The Utica Comets “Puck The Virus’ T-shirt campaign has been a big success.

Comets President Rob Esche says the “Puck The Virus’ fund will cover full lost wages for all of the 166 game-day staff members who work for the Utica Comets, Utica City FC and Utica College.

About 3,000 of the t-shirts have been sold.

The T-shirts have been purchased by people in all 50 state and 10 Canadian provinces.

You can still purchase a t-shirt on the Comets website.

The Comets season was suspended on March 12th due to the coronavirus pandemic.
