Farpoint Films presents Champion City - The story of the 1896 Winnipeg Victorias - Stanley Cup Champions
The Winnipeg Victorias first won the Stanley Cup in 1896 by defeating the Montreal Victorias in a single-game challenge on February 14, 1896 in Montreal. The Stanley Cup trophy then made its way West to the prairies to a grand reception from frenzied fans.
This is their story. Capturing the hearts of the fiercely proud prairie hockey fans, the Winnipeg Victorias changed the game of hockey forever.
Join us on Feb 13th, 2012 at the Tom Hendry Theatre at the MTC Warehouse to celebrate the 116th Anniversary of this historic win. Winnipeg has always had a rich and deep hockey tradition. With the return of the Winnipeg Jets, hockey fever has swept this prairie town once again. See how it all began.

About the True North Foundation
The Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation is the charitable arm of the Winnipeg Jets, and ‘charity of choice’ for the MTS Centre. The Foundation allows players, their partners, coaches, board members, and True North staff to contribute to the community of Manitoba in a concerted and centralized manner.
The foundation operates under the direction of Dwayne Green, Executive Director, in partnership with a dedicated volunteer Board of Directors.
What is the purpose of the foundation?
The main goal of the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation is to strengthen and broaden the base of the Winnipeg Jets' involvement in the community. It succeeds in this area by providing funds to local, registered charitable organizations strictly in the Province of Manitoba who provide programs and/or initiatives for children/youth with a focus on healthy living.
