During the General Annual Assembly of the Board of Governors held
today in Montreal, the Board of Governors voted to reveal the host city
of the 2015 MasterCard Memorial Cup on April 3rd, 2014, after the Golden
Timelines have already been set regarding the process. Teams
interested in making a bid for the event must declare their intent prior
to September 30th, 2013. A brief, which underlines the ability of
bidding franchises to host the event, must then be forwarded to the
Quebec Major Junior Hockey League's head office prior to December 15th,
"The Board of Governors voted to mandate an independent committee to
choose the site of the next MasterCard Memorial Cup as was the case in
the two previous tournaments in Rimouski and Shawinigan. Over the course
of the next few weeks, steps will be taken to select the members of
the independent committee, » declared the Commissioner Gilles Courteau.
The independent committee will begin touring potential sites early in
2014. A decision is expected in April 2014.
