Relocating and coming back home
Winnipeg was originally home to an NHL team named the Jets between 1979 and 1996. That team, however, relocated to Phoenix, becoming the Arizona Coyotes. This was not a reflection of a lack of fan support in Winnipeg, more so a result of the franchise running into financial trouble. Understandably, supporters of the original franchise and were overjoyed in 2011 when it was announced that the struggling Atlanta Thrashers would be moved to Winnipeg and the team would reclaim the Jets moniker. While the original Jets team played their home matches in Winnipeg Arena, the new franchise had the luxury of moving into Bell MTS Place, a state-of-the-art entertainment arena located in the downtown district. Slightly smaller than most professional sports stadiums, Bell MTS Place provides a uniquely intimate experience for fans. No matter where your seats are in the stadium, you will feel as though you are part of the action on the ice! Get Winnipeg Jets tickets on StubHub to have the chance of being part of the energetic crowd at the next game.
Whiteout from the ice to the stands
The Jets have long worn blue and white uniforms with dashes of red and silver. Their logo incorporates a Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) aircraft and the team has built a strong tradition of honouring the commitment of Canadian service people. A fan tradition was established by the original Winnipeg Jets supporters in 1987 when almost the entirety of those in attendance at a playoff game against the Calgary Flames wore white clothing. This became known as the Winnipeg Whiteout and has become a fan tradition for playoff matches. An engaged and devoted supporter base, fans of the Jets evoke a dynamic atmosphere with creative chants designed to rile up the opposition. The Jets supporters hold particular distain for the Nashville Predators, who they faced off against in an enthralling playoff series in 2018. Purchase Winnipeg Jets tickets to be a member of this tremendous fan culture.
