Finally after waiting for 15 years, Winnipeg has gotten an NHL hockey team. There was buzz and excitement when rumours were circulating that we may be getting a team, but nothing compares to the excitement with the official announcement.
Winnipeggers gathered at Portage & Main and the Forks for the announcement, many wearing Jets jerseys and chanting Jets Jets Jets. There has not been an announcement of the name of the team yet.
Season tickets went on sale and Winnipeggers stepped up to the plate and within hours 1,800 tickets were sold. It will be an exciting winter in Winnipeg when the first game is played in the city that fought for 15 years to get their team back.
The announcement also affected Realtors® in the city as well with the players moving to the city the market will increase slightly due to the migration of players and their families.
