Sébastien Lajoie La Tribune Even if the 2020-21 season of the QMJHL will take place mainly behind closed doors, fans of the Sherbrooke Phoenix will be able to reconnect with their favorite team on the big screen. On a very large screen. Indeed, on October 2, the organization invites its supporters to come and watch the first game of its season at Ciné-Parc Orford, while the Phoenix will receive a visit from the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada at 7 p.m.
The ninth season of the Sherbrooke concession will therefore begin on one of the screens at Ciné-Parc Orford.
A total of 320 vehicles will be able to attend the performance. The cost will be $ 20 per car and tickets will be on sale on the Ciné-Parc Orford website.
The site will open at 5:30 p.m. and the game will begin at 7:00 p.m. Jean-Sébastien Hammal and Onyx will be on hand to provide entertainment and provide a complete experience to those present. The description of the match will be provided, again this year, by Marc Bryson, live from the Palais des sports.
“We are very excited about the start of the season and we want to share this excitement with our fans. It is a unique opportunity to encourage the team in a family atmosphere, reminiscent of the games at the Palais des sports. So if you want to experience the opening match surrounded by supporters, with animation, and above all in compliance with health safety instructions, we invite you to broadcast the match live at Ciné-Parc Orford » launches the President and co-shareholder of the Phœnix, Mr. Denis Bourque, in a press release issued by the team.
“It's a great chance for our fans. If they cannot be present with us at the Palais des sports, they will be able to encourage us all together around a giant screen. Last year we really felt all the support from the fans and we want to know that they are still behind us, despite the particular season. We need them and it's a great opportunity to show them, ”says Stéphane Julien, head coach and general manager of the team.
This broadcast of the inaugural Phoenix game will mark the last weekend of activities for Ciné-Parc Orford this season.
