The new start time allows fans to enjoy the World Junior Hockey Championship Gold Medal Final scheduled to start for 8 PM EST. The Sarnia Sting will host a Watch Party for the much-anticipated Gold Medal Game immediately following the conclusion of the Sting vs. Firebirds.
Doors will open at the Progressive Auto Sales Arena beginning at 5 PM EST while the puck drops one hour later. Following the final buzzer of the Sting vs. Firebirds contest (approx. 8:15 PM EST), the Gold Medal Game will be broadcast in both the rink side restaurant as well as on the new 16’ x 9’ LED screens recently installed over the holidays. Food and beverage service will continue in special locations in-arena to accommodate fans staying for the watch party.
