The Stanley Cup is Coming to Brampton Tomorrow
You could say that this National Hockey League (NHL) championship trophy has been around!
The Stanley Cup will be making an appearance in Garden Square on Wednesday March 7, 2018, from 1-2:30 p.m. to gear the city up for Rogers Hometown Hockey. Hometown Hockey is coming to Brampton on March 10 and 11!
Psst… hey @CityBrampton… We've got the #StanleyCup making a special appearance at Garden Square TOMORROW from 1-2:30pm! Join us, snap some, and share them using #HometownHockey! pic.twitter.com/gS1YtuxsSw— Hometown Hockey (@hometownhockey_) March 6, 2018
The Cup is the oldest existing trophy to be awarded to a professional sports franchise, so this is a pretty big deal. It was originally commissioned in 1892 as the Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup, and championship-winning hockey teams have hugged it, kissed it, drank out of it, and held it in the air since.
The last Stanley Cup winners were the Pittsburgh Penguins during the 2016/17 NHL season.
Following free festivities in the Square on March 10 like live entertainment and hockey-themed activities, you can join Ron MacLean and Tara Slone on March 11 at 6 p.m. for a live, pre-game broadcast from the Rogers Hometown Hockey Mobile Studio. Then, there will be an outdoor viewing party on the big screen at 7 p.m. when the Calgary Flames, including hometown player Sean Monahan, take on the New York Islanders.
Will you head over to check out the Cup in person?
