Not a hockey fan? Here's why seeing Savannah's new team in person could change your mind
So, deep in the heart of football country, maybe you never got around to checking out ice hockey.
The ice you know best is in your beverage, perhaps while attending the annual party that is the Enmarket Savannah Hockey Classic at the Savannah Civic Center. As the college club teams scrambled around the rink with genuine intensity, you couldn’t follow the action beyond cheering for your favorite school and booing your rival, also with genuine intensity.
Minor league ice hockey coming to Savannah's new arena
The new Savannah Arena will be home to a new sport for the Hostess City —professional ice hockey, the team's president Bob Ohrablo told the Savannah Morning News.
The company hired to manage and operate the new Savannah Arena has scheduled a press conference for 11 a.m. Wednesday, when it will announce an expansion team in the minor league ECHL starting with the 2022-23 season.
As the COVID-19 pandemic has brought many industries to a halt altogether, we’ve seen construction projects pushing forward. The biggest for the City of Savannah right now, the new arena project, continues to move ahead with foundation work.
Oak View Group was the initial agreement with the venue management company to provide arena design assistance as part of a phased contracting approach before the arena’s planned opening at the end of 2021.
