Hot off their 2016 Mastercard Memorial Cup victory, the London Knights will be back in London, showing off the championship trophy at Victoria Park.
Their plane is scheduled to touch down at the London International Airport between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. Monday.
The team will be escorted from the airport, down Oxford st. to Richmond St. to Angel St. and then to Victoria Park.
They’re expected to arrive downtown sometime just after 5 p.m.
Everyone is welcome to attend the short ceremony, which will include team speeches.
“It’s coming together very well,”said Mayor Matt Brown. “The folks at Tourism London and others are working hard to making sure that we’re welcoming the London Knights back to London in the absolute right kind of style. This is a big day to celebrate.”
If you can’t make it down to Victoria Park for the celebration, AM980 will be broadcasting LIVE.
Following the reception, the players will head home for some much needed down time.
The Knights captured their second Memorial Cup in franchise history on Sunday night with a 3-2 overtime win over the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies in Red Deer, Alberta.
The Knights hadn’t been defeated since April 1st, capturing 17 consecutive wins.
