SAGINAW, Mich. – The Saginaw Spirit, members of the Ontario Hockey League, are proud to announce a partnership with JK&T Wings, Inc. and Subsidiaries to make the Buffalo Wild Wings location at 2690 Tittabawassee Road in Saginaw the official “Watch Party” home of all 34 Saginaw Spirit away games during the 2017-18 regular season, with an option for the 2018 OHL Playoffs.
“The Saginaw Spirit are thrilled to partner with Buffalo Wild Wings in Saginaw to provide our fans with an experience like never before,” said Saginaw Spirit President and Managing Partner, Craig Goslin.
“Whether it was our state-of-the-art videoboard, brand new sound system in The Dow Event Center, or HD television broadcast, the Saginaw Spirit are committed to staying on the cutting-edge of fan engagement and this new partnership brings that to an all-time level. With our young crop of budding superstars, we want our fans to be able to enjoy Spirit hockey as much as possible, and combining that with the food, fun, and atmosphere of Buffalo Wild Wings immensely supports that mission.”
The Saginaw Spirit will partner with one of the most popular sports bar-chain restaurants in all of North America to provide access to their team like never before. The Buffalo Wild Wings location in Saginaw, which has already established itself as one of the “go-to” locations to watch live sports in the Great Lakes Bay Region, will now show the live television broadcasts of all 34 Spirit away games against Ontario Hockey League opponents during the upcoming season on their massive collection of state-of-the-art High-Definition televisions and projectors.
“Buffalo Wild Wings strives itself on being a part of the community and since the Saginaw Spirit are a large part of the city of Saginaw, we have a great relationship with them,” said Jon Grayeb, Manager of Marketing, JK&T Wings, Inc. and Subsidiaries.
“We wanted to be involved with the fans so this year we are working with the Spirit to show all of the away games, giving the fans a place to enjoy great food and beverage, while remaining engaged with their favorite hockey team!”
The Ontario Hockey League is the only other hockey league outside of the NHL to provide fans with its own live television subscription package called the “OHL Action Pak”. While that subscription package is only available to Ontario cable customers, OHL Live streaming channel available at www.OHLlive.com streams nearly 95% of all Ontario Hockey League games in crystal-clear High Definition on smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices live to OHL fans around the world, while also offering an On-Demand feature, allowing fans to watch their team at their convenience.
