WINNIPEG, Dec. 16, 2019 - One lucky rural community will play host to the Winnipeg Jets Town Takeover event on Tuesday, March 24, 2020.

True North Sports + Entertainment looks forward to celebrating the great game of hockey with a rural Manitoba community as part of the Jets Town Takeover initiative which makes Jets hockey and programming more accessible to a population outside of the Perimeter.

Fans can enter through video submission outlining why their town deserves to be chosen as a Jets Town Takeover finalist. The deadline for entries is Sunday, Jan. 5. Three videos will be selected for public vote in mid-January to determine the winning community.

Complete contest details and submission guidelines are available at

Included in the day's activities on March 24 will be Project 11 mental wellness programming for local students, including a pizza lunch, and Winnipeg Jets alumni on-ice participation with a local hockey team. A free all-ages social-style viewing party of the Winnipeg Jets at the Nashville Predators will culminate the celebration that evening, giving everyone in the community a chance to participate, complete with Mick E. Moose, fanfare and prizing.

The 2020 Jets Town Takeover follows the inaugural event hosted in Morris, Man. last season.
