We Put It All on the Line

NHL Hub City 2020

In July 2020, Edmonton was chosen as one of two hub cities for the 2020 NHL season, and the destination of the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs. For nearly three months, Rogers Place, the public plaza, and JW Marriott Edmonton Ice District were home to hundreds of NHL players, coaches, and staff. With a priority on health and safety, the NHL season was able to happen successfully and was broadcast to millions of people around the world.

More Seasons of Safe Sport

Fall and winter 2021 opened the doors for Edmonton to experiment with events they never hosted before including HSBC World Rugby Sevens. For two days, Commonwealth Stadium hosted teams from across the globe in action-packed rugby sevens matchups. The party continued in the stands with incredible costumes and unforgettable memories. As one of only two global cities to host the Sevens Series, we were proud to welcome teams safely and put on an incredible show.

Summer 2021 also invited several successful and safe events, including the 2021 Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) Championship Weekend, where the Edmonton Stingers won the second straight CEBL championships in a row, this time, on home court. There was also the 2021 World Triathlon Championship Finals that opened the gates to elite triathletes and enthusiast fans who cheered athletes on from the grandstands in Hawrelak Park.
