GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Thursday is Opening Day for the Greenville Drive, and the team hopes fans will pack out the stands at Fluor Field.

The home opener starts at 7:05 p.m. against the Kannapolis Intimidators for the Boston Red Sox affiliate's ninth season at Fluor Field.

Tickets are still for sale and start at $7. Fans that may not be able to make it out Thursday night can catch another game in the series against Kannapolis with games set for Friday and Saturday at 7:05 p.m. and Sunday at 4:05 p.m.

Thursday night offers fans the first chance to check out the all-new Southern Tide 500 Club on $1 Drink Night. The 500 Club has been transformed during the off-season into a nautical, seaside-themed area that includes the Skipjack Lounge, six large flat-screen TVs, and new couches and seaside chairs throughout. Southern Tide is now the official apparel provider for the team.

The stadium's suite level has also been updated.

While Thursday offers $1 drink nights, other promotional events are planned for the 2014 season, including four Reading All Stars games devoted to the celebration of reading accomplishments, the fourth annual Drive Business Downtown on May 13 and Green Day on Aug. 5.

To purchase single-game tickets, ticket plans, luxury accommodations or group outings for the 2014 season, visit the Main Street Box Office, call 864-240-4530 or buy online at greenvilledrive.com.
