For those old enough to remember, watching the 1989 rookie of the year Teemu Selanne secure his rookie goal record and throw his glove what seemed like 50 feet in the air, turning his hockey stick up-side-down to mimic that of a rifle, only to figuratively ‘snipe’ his glove in pure celebration is for many the first Winnipeg Jets memory etched into our fandom. Since then, the Jets have had their fair share of ups and downs. In 1996, then owners Richard Burke and Steven Gluckstem sold the original Jets franchise to Phoenix business tycoon Jerry Colangelo, the team played their final game on April 28th, 1996. During its hockey-less drought the Winnipeg faithful proved too strong of a fanbase, countlessly showing support as to why they deserve an NHL franchise. Finally, in May of 2011, True North Sports and Entertainment purchased and relocated the Atlanta Thrashers, officially bringing professional hockey back to the city of Winnipeg. SInce then, Jets fans remain some of the most loyal and enthusiastic amongst the entire league, and if you ever have the chance to catch a game (especially a playoff game in the ‘Whiteout’) you definitely should not reject it. WIth BookSeats.com, Jets fans can travel to Winnipeg to secure any custom combination of Flights, Hotels and Tickets, or follow the team on the road to rival cities and show others the reason why the Jets flew back to the Peg.
The Winnipeg Jets play in the Bell MTS Place. It was completed in 2004 and replaced the former “Winnipeg Arena.” It’s home to both the Jets and the Manitoba Moose and owned by “True North Sports and Entertainment.” It was originally called the “MTS Centre” after the Manitoba Telecom Services company, which was then acquired by Bell, hence “Bell MTS Place.”
Bell MTS Place can house up to 15,321 Jets faithful. For home playoff games Jets’ fans wear white, fittingly called the “Winnipeg Whiteout,” which is an incredible spectacle with that many people!
It is highly recommended to stay in downtown Winnipeg. With the arena being located just an 8 minute walk from the city centre it allows fans the ability to stay within walking distance of Jets’ games as well as the opportunity to easily experience everything the hub has to offer. Further, the downtown core is only a 14 minute drive to Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport making accessibility in and out of the city extremely easy.
They’re called the Jets because original owner Ben Hastkin was reportedly a massive New York Jets NFL fan and wanted to bring the name into the sport of hockey. Further, (and very fitting) Winnipeg also is the main location for the Royal Canadian Air Force.
