Giants Announce Postponement of January 9th Home Game against Portland
Vancouver, B.C. - The Vancouver Giants in conjunction with the Western Hockey League announced today that the home game originally scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday, January 9th at 4:00 PM against the Portland Winterhawks has been postponed. The game will be rescheduled to a later date (still to be determined) and all purchased tickets for Sunday, January 9th will remain valid.
The postponement comes as a result of multiple players and staff being added to the WHL COVID-19 Protocol List due to exhibiting symptoms or having tested positive for COVID-19.
At this time, both games scheduled for next weekend on Friday, January 14th and Saturday, January 15th at home against the Prince George Cougars are unaffected by today's announcement.
The safety of the fans, players, staff members, volunteers and all supporters of the Vancouver Giants remains our top priority. Further updates regarding rescheduled games will be made in the days to come when those details become finalized.
