Exciting news, Nanaimo! Our community has been chosen as a stop on the third season of Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour! A total of 24 towns and cities across Canada will host this fun, community-focused hockey event.
On February 25 and 26, Maffeo Sutton Park will be transformed into a community festival atmosphere. Ron MacLean and Tara Slone will broadcast live from the park on February 26 while the Ottawa Senators play the Florida Panthers on their home turf in Miami.
This is a great event to showcase Nanaimo, our dedication to sports and recreation (hockey, in particular) and our community spirit.
Stay tuned for more updates as planning unfolds in the coming months.
We will provide regular updates on the City website, the City blog, facebook and twitter. And, check out Rogers Hometown Hockey for more information on the Tour and the match-up games.
