White Out in Tucson and its Winnipeg Origins

There is a White Out in Tucson for the playoff, right after a tail gate. We love the WHITE OUT, which is fan interactive, creates a visual spectacle, and its pretty easy to gets fans engaged. It’s also now a staple of game entertainment….so we thought it might be a good time to review where it came from as well.

The White Out by most accounts started in Winnepeg.  There is a great story on it here: Winnipeg Jets White Out creator shares story behind the phenomenon

TUCSON, AZ – The Tucson Roadrunners, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Arizona Coyotes, announced today that the club will begin Wednesday’s Game Three festivities with a tailgate party presented by Cirrus Visual.

Starting at 5 p.m. and running until 6:30 p.m., fans are encouraged to come to the TCC, enjoy music, food, drinks and activities while celebrating moments before the first-ever WHITEOUT at Tucson Arena.

“We are excited to get things started before our first home playoff game with a party to get everyone ready,” Bob Hoffman, President of the Roadrunners remarked. “Cirrus Visual has been a great partner all season long and they were catalysts in wanting to set the mood before everyone enters the WHITEOUT.”

At Wednesday’s game, all fans in attendance will receive a free Roadrunners WHITEOUT t-shirt, courtesy of Cox Communications.
