Fuel to participate in Toledo's 2020 WinterfestApr 22, 2020
INDIANAPOLIS - The Toledo Walleye announced today that the Indy Fuel will take on the Walleye at Winterfest 2020 on Thursday, December 31 outdoors at Fifth Third Field.
The Walleye are slated to play two games outside, taking on the Kalamazoo Wings on Saturday, December 26 and then the Fuel for a 6:00 p.m. New Year’s Eve matchup.
“We are thrilled to be involved in Winterfest,” says Head Coach Doug Christiansen. “Events like this are something that players and staff look forward to all season. It will be a meaningful game between two good teams. I know our players will be excited to play outside to end a challenging 2020!”
These will be the third and fourth games in ECHL history to be held outdoors, and the first time the Fuel will be participating. Toledo played games against Kalamazoo and Fort Wayne during Winterfest presented by ProMedica which was held December 2014-January 2015.
“Hockey players of all ages will get to play outdoors during Winterfest,” says Michael Keedy, Toledo Walleye Director of Strategic Planning and Projects. “Plus, we’ll have public open skating sessions each day as well for wintertime family fun.” More than 50,000 people attended events during the first Winterfest event.
Winterfest presented by ProMedica will be held December 17 through January 3 and will kick off with the Toledo Night Market from December 18-20.
