The world famous Colisee Stadium in Quebec will be hosting its last final hockey event in the upcoming weeks. This hockey event is the memorial cup and after sixty six years of being a part of hockey history this stadium will be shutting its doors for good. There are hundreds of fans who feel attached to this stadium that’ll be attending the memorial cup just to say goodbye to this stadium.
The next Videotron Centre Stadium in Quebec City is being built right beside Colisee Stadium and will hold a total of 482 seats. This new stadium is being built with hopes that Quebec City can become the next big NHL Franchise which in return would allow for this city to grow in infrastructure by a minimum 9%.
The Colisee Stadium was home to famous hockey players before they made their way off to the National Hockey League such as Jean Beliveau or Guy Lafluer. Some of those famous players will be attending the memorial cup so that they can also see this building off. The Pepsi Colisee Stadium is slated to be demolished in the upcoming September of 2015. Certain aspects of the building such as posters, seats and more will be sold off at an auction to diehard fans & the proceeds will be sent to a local charity.
We shall keep you updated as to when the Videotron Centre in Quebec City will open. It’s slated to be opened anywhere from September to October.
