Almaguin Spartans are excited to announce they have been selected to host the 12th Annual Greater Metro Jr. A Hockey League All-Star Game. The game is set to take place January 9th, 2018 at the South River-Machar Community Centre.
Tickets will be going on sale Saturday, August 12th at the Sundridge Sunflower Festival where the Spartans will have a booth set up selling tickets along with merchandise.
The event will follow a similar format to the NHL all-star game, but teams will be split into two teams that represent the North and South conference. Prior to the game players will compete in five or six skills competitions.
With all the buzz and excitement around the city, it is expected that upwards of 500-600 people will be in attendance to the All-Star game. The Spartans are planning to have some great promotions and activities, including giveaways of team apparel and other prizes in store for fans who come out to the game.
The All-Star Game will begin at 7:30 pm with national anthems and a statement from the GMHL. This will be the first time the franchise has hosted an All-Star Game.
