Express Host Sudbury Five on Family Day


The WFCU Centre will be rocking on Monday when the Windsor Express battle the Sudbury Five.

The Express are expecting a packed house since every ticket to the game is free.

The free tickets were made available after the team partnered with area unions from across the region.

Express Head Coach Bill Jones says he hopes his team feeds off the crowd.

"We want our guys to be able to feel the energy, to come out there and play with high effort, high energy and high enthusiasm," says Jones.   

He says Sudbury is ahead of the Express in the standings.

"They're ahead of us by a couple games," says Jones.  "So we'll be able to knock out a game today if we go ahead and take care of business.  We got a big game, we'll have a big crowd and we're looking to do big things."      

The game is being billed as "Solidarity Night" on Family Day.

It's the first time the Express has played at home on Family Day.

Tip-off is set for 5pm.
