Vancouver Canucks announce road game viewing party for playoffs

The Canucks reveal plans for the pre-game festivities ahead of their first home playoff game in nearly 9 years.

Can’t make it to one of the Vancouver Canucks playoff games in Nashville? Have no fear.

The Canucks have unveiled plans for a road game viewing party, set to be held at Rogers Arena.

The first “Away Game Viewing Party” will be on April 26, for Game 3 of the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The tickets are going for $15 apiece, with the proceeds going to the Canucks for Kids Fund.

Sunday’s event is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m.

“Watch the game on one of the biggest and brightest videoboards in the NHL, be entertained throughout the experience, and receive special Rogers Value Menu food and beverage offerings thanks to Rogers,” the team said.

‘All together. All in’

This is all part of the Canucks’ “All together. All in” campaign, which the team says will bring “playoff pride … to life across the city.”

“This tagline expresses the unity between the team and our fans—bringing us together to cheer, believe, and strive for greatness in the playoffs,” the Canucks said in a statement Friday. “You can expect to see this rallying cry in the arena and around the city, on posters, billboards, buses, and beyond, spreading playoff excitement and electricity across the Lower Mainland.”

As part of playoff plans, the Canucks say fans can expect a “revitalized and refreshed Toyota Party on the Plaza” before every home game, with live programming, music, FIN, alumni, a beer garden, ball hockey rinks, and more.

Located outside Rogers Arena, the team says the party on the plaza is free, with no tickets required.

“Programming will begin two and a half hours before the game and end immediately after puck drop. Please note that Pat Quinn Way will be closed on gamedays to allow us to create a larger Toyota Party on the Plaza experience,” the Canucks explained.

Fans of the team are excited as the Canucks inch closer to their first playoff game at home in nearly a decade.

“I think the chances are great,” one fan of the team told CityNews. “We’ve done really well all season, lots of momentum going into the playoffs.”

“It kind of feels like the 2010 Olympics again, where everyone is really looking forward to what’s ahead,” another fan said.

Vancouver last made the playoffs in 2020 and got to the second round, but that was during the pandemic and none of the games were at home. For those looking to catch a home playoff game in person, tickets were still available as of Friday, with the cheapest going for around $300.
