Calgary, Alta. – The Western Hockey League announced today the complete B.C. Division schedule of games for the 2020-21 Regular Season, which is set to begin Friday, March 26 in the WHL Hub Centers in Kamloops and Kelowna.

The WHL’s B.C. Division will begin with a doubleheader on Friday, March 26 as the Kamloops Blazers host the Vancouver Giants at the Sandman Centre in Kamloops (7 p.m. PT), while the Kelowna Rockets will host the Victoria Royals at Prospera Place in Kelowna (7:05 p.m. PT).

As previously announced, the WHL’s B.C. Division will play all 2020-21 Regular Season games exclusively within the Hub Centers located in Kamloops and Kelowna. The five B.C. Division teams will each play a 24-game schedule, which includes six games against each opponent.

The WHL has developed an extensive set of protocols and believe the protective Hub environment will provide a high standard of safety, for not only players and staff, but the Kamloops and Kelowna communities at large. The WHL will implement an ongoing weekly private PCR testing strategy, with all tests being processed by DynaLIFE Labs out of Edmonton, Alta.

Enhanced screening for all WHL players, billets, team staff and officials will take place on a daily basis, including regular temperature screenings as well as symptom monitoring through the WHL Athlete RMS Mobile Application. Masks must be worn by all WHL players at all times with the exception of when participating on ice for games and practices. WHL coaches will be required to wear masks at all times, including while conducting practice and while behind the bench during games.

As the WHL returns to play in the WHL Hub Centers in Kamloops and Kelowna, no spectators will be permitted to enter Sandman Centre or Prospera Place.

WHL fans can look forward to taking in games across the whole league through the newly-launched WHL Live on CHL TV. More details available by visiting watch.CHL.ca.
