The Mastercard Memorial Cup is now less than two weeks away.
On Monday, we learned how the 100th edition of Canada’s junior hockey championship will be opened up as a big night is planned May 17 with everything culminating with a concert by the Eagles.
There will be a musical tribute to the Humboldt Broncos which will be performed by Jack Semple and the Regina Symphony. There will be a tribute to the Cup and the Canadian military, and a huge fireworks display with everything being hosted by comedian Brent Butt who is a Saskatchewan native.
The festivities will get underway at 4 p.m. in Confederation Park with the Centennial Salute Tailgate Party.
Many, including NHL hockey greats, will be taking part in a red-carpet event which goes at Mosaic Stadium in the AGT Lounge with the night being capped off by the concert.
Before the Eagles hit the stage, those in attendance will also get performances from Chad Brownlee and Jess Moskaluke.
The next night will see the hockey tournament opening with the Regina Pats playing the Ontario Hockey League champions. That will either be the Hamilton Bulldogs or Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds with the action continuing until the championship final on May 27.
620 CKRM is your home for the Memorial Cup as we will have all games from the Brandt Centre for you.
