UNIVERSITY CUP ORGANIZERS ANNOUNCE
Feb. 19, 2015
Please see below a message from the organizers of the 2015 University Cup.
HALIFAX – It is time to Show Us Your Colours, Halifax!
The CIS University Cup invites Haligonians and hockey fans to join us in celebrating the connections we have to our alma maters; whether they be Universities, Colleges, High School or our youth hockey or sport clubs! Over the next month, business owners and managers throughout downtown Halifax will be showcasing their alma mater pride via window clings promoting the upcoming CIS Men’s Hockey Championships taking place March 12-15 at the Scotiabank Centre. Also launching today as part of the Show Us Your Colours campaign is a special initiative that will allow each minor hockey association in the greater Halifax area to own a section of the Scotiabank Centre stands, giving their current and former players a chance to show their hometown rink pride! Finally, to pull this campaign together, we are designating Friday March 6th as Show Us Your Colours casual Friday. We want Haligonians to wear their favourite university hoodie or minor hockey t-shirt, all to celebrate the connection we all have to where we have come from and the role it plays in who we are today!
“We wear the logos and crests of the teams we have played on and schools we have attended proudly because of the achievements we have had and the friends we made along the way,” stated Derek Martin, Chair of the CIS University Cup. “The CIS University Cup will celebrate our connections to our past and help our children build their memories for the future.”
More information on how to get involved with any of the Show Us Uour Colours initiatives can be found on our website at www.ucuphfx.ca.
