Get ready hockey fans! Steinbach has been selected as one of 25 community stops for Rogers Hometown Hockey cross-country tour this winter.

On March 9-10, 2019, Steinbach will host a two-day hockey celebration that includes live entertainment and hockey-themed activities for the whole family. The event finishes up with an outdoor viewing party of a national NHL game broadcast hosted live by Ron MacLean and Tara Slone on Sportsnet, Canada’s Home of Hockey.

“We were very happy when we were contacted about participating in the tour,” said Troy Warkentin, City Manager, “We immediately saw this as a great opportunity to not only show our amazing city to the rest of Canada, but to also celebrate what already brings our community together regularly - the game of hockey.”

As part of the national broadcast on Sportsnet, Steinbach will be profiled and local hockey stories shared.

Full event details will be available early in 2019.
