  • Edmonton Stingers Basketball

    Have you heard of the Edmonton Stingers? They will begin play in May (first game is May 10th) at the Edmonton Expo Centre. They will be playing in the Canadian Elite Basketball League which sounds like it has a solid plan and some deep pockets which is a stark contrast to previous attempts at basketball in this city

    Today they hired their first ever coach, here's a snippet of the article then the link.

    Another piece in Edmonton Stingers history was confirmed this morning, as University of Alberta Golden Bears head coach Barnaby Craddock was announced as the franchise’s inaugural head coach.

    Thanks for the heads up. Paul Sir has been talking about them on 1260 for the last little while. I'm looking forward to checking this out.

    In the meantime The Bears are in a 3 game playoff series against UBC starting Friday at Saville. These teams played an epic final season series. It's going to be awesome.

      I've never watched a University or College game. My daughter is in an improv tournament this weekend otherwise today's announcement would have changed that. If nothing else the Stingers will bring more attention to what we already have in town. Of course, I'm hoping they become a hot ticket.

        If you need a small push to go see the Ice Castles, the Stingers will be handing out free cocoa and coffee on Saturday.

            Nine friends and I are going to the Friday May 10th inaugural Edmonton Stingers Basketball Game at the Edmonton Expo Centre. “A rock concert meets a basketball game” are the words I remember most from their introductory press conference.
