Old Hockey Rivalry Sparks Historic Achievement For The PWHL

It's always thrilling when classic hockey rivalries reignite, and the Professional Women's Hockey League (PWHL) is taking full advantage of the excitement in its inaugural season.

Making a significant mark, the PWHL achieved a world record in women's hockey by selling out all 18,800 seats at Scotiabank Arena for an upcoming clash on February 16 between long-time foes Toronto and Montreal.

After a brief presale and just two hours of public ticket availability, the game earned the title of "SCOTIABANK ARENA SELL OUT." The quick sell-out underscores the tremendous interest in this matchup, setting a new pro women's hockey record with nearly 19,000 fans anticipated.




Despite Toronto's team recording the second-lowest attendance in the PWHL this season, it's worth noting they play their home games at the Mattamy Athletic Centre, accommodating just under 2500 fans.

Shifting this particular game, dubbed "The Battle on Bay Street," to Scotiabank Arena highlights the unmet demand for women's hockey in Toronto. This success suggests potential growth and profitability in the future.

For those planning to catch the game on TV, it kicks off at 7 PM ET, and numerous outlets will be broadcasting the historic event.
