HockeyTech to support MHL Nova Scotia Victims Fund with live rebroadcast of 2019 Canadian Tire Cup Final
Truro, N.S. (April 28, 2020) – HockeyTech, a major broadcast partner of the Maritime Junior Hockey League (MHL), have announced support of the league’s Nova Scotia Victims Fund through a live rebroadcast of the final game of the 2018-19 season. On April 19th, 2019, the Yarmouth Mariners captured their second league championship in a thrilling 7-6 come-from-behind overtime win against the Campbellton Tigers in Game 4 of the Canadian Tire Cup Final.
The game will be broadcast Friday, May 1st starting at 7 p.m. Atlantic Time on HockeyTV for free, with 50 cents from each view going to the MHL Nova Scotia Victims Fund (to a maximum of $5,000). All that’s needed to watch is a free account, which can be created at hockeytv.com.
The Fund was established in the aftermath of the tragic events in central and northern Nova Scotia to raise money that will go directly to the families, victims, and communities impacted by these events. All funds generated with this campaign will be held in trust and administered by a group within the MHL’s Board of Governors.
“The outpouring of support from coast to coast for the MHL Nova Scotia Victims Fund has been overwhelming, and the league’s partners have stepped up to the plate time and again to get this off the ground to support the victims of this tragedy,” says MHL President Steve Dykeman. “We’re thankful to HockeyTech for this initiative and hope everyone tunes in to this exciting game on Friday night.”
