All over Canada and other hockey-crazed parts of the world, children grow up spending countless hours on outdoor ice rinks learning how to skate and perfecting their slap shot and other hockey skills. It’s only fitting that the highest level of the sport should occasionally be played in the open air. This October, a pair of outdoor hockey games are coming to Winnipeg, Manitoba, for the highly anticipated NHL Heritage Classic. Use the NHL Heritage Classic Tickets and Guide to get your seat at Investors Group Field to witness this historic and thrilling event.
Outdoor hockey is rare but not unheard of. The NHL Heritage Classic has been played three times before, last on March 2, 2014 when the Ottawa Senators upended the Vancouver Canucks 4-2. Other NHL Heritage Classic games have been held in 2011 and 2003. This year’s matchup is slated for Oct. 23 between the Edmonton Oilers and the host Winnipeg Jets.
The stadium will be full of energy and excitement for this early season game. The 33,500-seat Investors Group Field, situated on the campus of the University of Manitoba, is home to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League. But for the NHL Heritage Classic, it’ll be the venue for one of hockey’s largest-attended games.
To this point, the NHL Heritage Classic has pitted two Canadian teams against one another. Along with the National Hockey League’s Winter Classic, another outdoor contest, it is one of the most celebrated games of the regular season. In the past, cold weather hasn’t deterred eager fans from filling the stadium. League officials are anticipating similar success this season.
You haven’t seen hockey at its best until you’ve witnessed it outside in the cool, fresh air. To experience this unique event, get your NHL Heritage Classic Tickets today and be prepared for one memorable evening of professional hockey.
