Dundas Place to host watch parties as Knights play for Memorial Cup

If you want to watch the London Knights face the top junior teams in Canada with a crowd, head to the city's downtown.

The Dundas Place flex street will host free watch parties for all of London's games in the Memorial Cup, starting with their Saturday contest against Drummondville.

“We are so proud to gather together on our beautiful, transformational street downtown and support the Ontario Hockey League Champions, our London Knights,” said Mayor Josh Morgan. “Many City staff, including the deputy mayor and myself, will be in our jerseys, cheering on from Dundas Place for these Memorial Cup Games. Good luck to the London Knights!”

The city, Downtown London, and Tourism London came together to make the watch party happen.

Dundas will be closed between Talbot and Ridout until the afternoon of Thursday, May 30.

“London loves our Knights and, as an avid hockey fan, I am excited to head down to Dundas Place to watch this talented team continue to put pucks in the net and wins on the board,” added Deputy Mayor Shawn Lewis. “Together, let’s make sure our team hears us cheer them on from the heart of our vibrant downtown!”

 The Knights other two round robin games are against Moose Jaw on Monday at 7:30 p.m., and then a contest with the host Saginaw Spirit on Wednesday, May 29, also at 7:30. 

The city says public washrooms will be available on site.
