Nanaimo Clippers are bidding to host the 2021 National Junior A Hockey Championship
The Nanaimo Clippers Hockey Club has announced that they are going forward with a bid to host the 2021 National Junior A Hockey Championship.
“This is a huge event that will bring millions of economic dollars into the City of Nanaimo not to mention plenty of publicity for the harbor city” mentioned Wes Mussio, owner of the Nanaimo Clippers. “As a resident of Nanaimo, I walk around the city and hear many fans tell me that we need more high-end sporting events after the fans got a flavor of international competition through the sold-out World Junior Hockey exhibition game in December 2018. While this National Championship will be a major financial and time commitment for the Clippers, I feel we have the infrastructure, volunteer support and fan base to host an event of this caliber.”
Hockey Canada sent a request out for any teams in the BC Hockey League that may be interested in hosting the event with all final bid documents to be submitted by April 30th 2019.
“Tali Campbell, Director of Business Operations and Darren Naylor, Head Coach and General Manager, will spearhead the bid committee, However we are going to be relying on many businesses, organizations and individuals to help out as well.” Mussio said.
If anyone is interested in being a part of this process they are asked to contact Tali Campbell at Tali@NanaimoClippers.com
