The El Paso Rhinos, one of the most successful sports teams in the region, is among four finalists vying to host a National Hockey League exhibition game.
The Rhinos join East Grand Forks, Minnesota; Wichita, Kansas; and River Falls, Wisconsin as the Final Four in the 2020 Kraft Hockeyville contest.
The yearly competition asks hockey team cities to demonstrate their love of the sport through an array of online contests. Including asking fans to upload videos and photos supporting their team.
The winning team gain $150,000 in ice rink upgrades and the chance to host an NHL exhibition game.
The contest was held earlier in the year and the finalists were to be announced in March. The announcement was delayed until Aug 16.
“We’re incredibly grateful that our community and our fans have helped us make it into the final four. We need their help once more so we can bring this prestigious distinction to the Sun City,” El Paso Rhinos head coach Cory Herman said in a statement.
