Black and Blue playoff hockey is nearly here, Victoria!

After almost two weeks away from the Save-On Foods Memorial Centre, our very own Victoria Royals are back in town to face the Everett Silvertips in an almost SOLD OUT game that promises to be a spirited bout and get the barn on Blanshard rocking once more – Victoria style!

The Royals officially close their regular season with another back-to-back competition with the Silvertips in Everett tomorrow night, with Everett currently holding the top spot in their U.S division. Victoria is slotted at #2 in the BC division, ensuring that these two games will be as exciting and emotionally-charged as ever!

Though tonight’s game is almost sold out, don’t fret! You don’t have to say goodbye to WHL hockey just yet – Victoria Royals playoff packs are still available, and they can be purchased either online or in-person at the box-office.

As a final farewell to the regular season, the Royals are also hosting their eighth annual awards ceremony, happening this Sunday, March 17th at Save on Foods Memorial Centre – the event starts at 4:00 p.m. with a mix and mingle available for guests, players and staff in attendance, and the awards portion will begin at 5:00 p.m. The much-anticipated event still has tickets available for purchase, so if you’d like to give our boys an official send-off into the playoffs, this is your chance!

Also, as a thank-you to fans for their continuous support throughout the 2018-19 season, the Royals are going out with a bang while hosting Fan Appreciation Night tonight, offering the first 1,500 fans to arrive an official Royals’ Team Poster. There will also be thousands of dollars in prizes will be given out throughout the evening, so this won’t be one to miss!

There is nothing in the world like playoff hockey, so don your black and blue, get that face paint out and bring your loudest cheering voice as we embark on what promises to be an epic run for the ages – the Memorial Cup is calling their name!
