MNP MVT returning for 2013-14

Press Release

Brandon, MB. – Twenty-five seats for every Brandon Wheat Kings home game will be awarded to young athletes and coaches as the Western Hockey League club has announced the return of the popular MNP “Most Valuable Team” (MVT) Program for the 2013-14 season.

The initiative, introduced by MNP last season, supports youth involved in amateur athletics and recognizes the volunteer efforts of their coaches.

"A lot of these kids look up to the Wheat Kings and we are excited to give them a chance to see their favourite team in action live at Westman Place," says Dan Trotter, a Partner in MNP’s Brandon office. “Our firm has always been committed to Brandon and the surrounding communities, and this program is a great opportunity for us to support these teams and promote the importance of physical activity. We know that being social and feeling like a part of a community is one of the great benefits of local team sports and we are happy to have a program in place that helps make that possible.”

The MNP MVT program is open to western Manitoba athletes ages eight to seventeen and their coaches or assistant coaches. Youth teams from any sport can apply, from minor hockey to swimming and high school sports.

Applications to attend Wheat Kings’ Saturday night home games this season, beginning with the October 5th game against the visiting Red Deer Rebels, are now being accepted. Coaches, managers or other team officials can enter their team online at or email or at any MNP locations.

In addition to the tickets, all winning teams will receive complimentary copies of the Wheat Kings 2013-14 Souvenir Program. As well, each week the winning team will be introduced during the game on the Video Scoreboard at Westman Communications Group Place.

MNP has a long history of supporting sport throughout western Canada and is committed to helping community organizations through programs like the MVT Program and this partnership with the Wheat Kings.
