PATS OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCE MEMORIAL CUP BID
The work to support this bid is well underway, with Shaun Semple, President and CEO of the Brandt Group of Companies and Chair of Regina’s Host Organizing Committee, leading a strong volunteer team. “With our amazing volunteer base and demonstrated ability to host major events, Regina is the natural choice to host the Cup,” says Mr. Semple. “It is the perfect opportunity to showcase the long, storied history of Canada’s game in the home of Canada’s oldest hockey team!”
“The 100th anniversary of the Memorial Cup aligns beautifully with our own Regina Pats 100-year celebration,” adds Pats Governor, Anthony Marquart. “We are excited to show all of Canada what Regina has to offer!”
The Pats ownership group and management team have proven their abilities since taking over in 2014 by vigorously overhauling the Regina franchise; quickly transforming it into the #1 Major Junior hockey team in the country. They are keen to extend this success beyond their home market, augmenting the profile of Major Junior hockey across Canada.
