2015 ECHL All-Star Classic

Updated: 17 Aug 2013 03:42:00 AM

The ECHL All-Star game is coming to Orlando’s Amway Center on January 21st, 2015.

The game is slated to cap off a full week of hockey events in Orlando.

The Orlando Solar Bears made the announcement together with the City of Orlando and Visit Orlando this week, and are anticipating that the All-Star game featuring the Solar Bears against ECHL all-stars will break existing attendance records.

Events will kick off on January 16th with the Orlando Youth Hockey/Martin Luther King Day Tournament.

Over 50 youth teams are expected to participate in the tournament, which will run until January 19th.

ECHL Festivities

Afterwards, ECHL festivities will begin with an array of player meet and greets, skills challenges, and other fun-filled and family-friendly events.

Plans are also underway to have interactive games and host an ECHL Hall of Fame exhibit.

The week of hockey will finally culminate with the all-star game itself following a Hall of Fame luncheon.

Amway Center will be the primary venue for Orlando’s “weeklong celebration of Hockey”, and Solar Bears managing partner Jason Siegel hopes that the plans unveiled this week will inspire other ECHL team cities to organize similar events in the future.

The weeklong festivities should bring millions of dollars to Orlando’s economy and boost the city’s reputation as a sports-loving region.

The Orlando Solar Bears were founded in 2011 and earned the rank of 3rd most popular ECHL team in terms of attendance in their first season.
