The Alberni Valley Bulldogs and the city of Port Alberni are pleased to announce that two are in the process of finalizing a 5-year (Five) lease extension at the Alberni Valley Multiplex.
The new agreement would see the Multiplex remain the home of the Bulldogs through at least the conclusion of the 2024 season.
“We’re excited to be in a position to extend our great partnership with the City of Port Alberni,” said Bulldogs president David Michaud. “We’re very proud to call the Multiplex home and greatly appreciate the city’s desire to make Bulldogs hockey feasible for many years to come. Our purchase agreement was predicated on the city’s willingness to get a deal done and we’re excited to see it go before council. We want the Bulldogs to be in Port Alberni”
“Council has previously expressed a desire to keep the Bulldogs in Port Alberni, and staff are actively working on a 5-year lease extension for consideration by City Council,” said Willa Thorpe, Director of Parks, Recreation and Heritage.
The matter will appear before for council on August 12th, their next scheduled meeting.
The Bulldogs have had a big offseason with the addition of a new ownership structure, Joe Martin being named the head coach and general manager, and several quality additions to the roster.
Regarded as one of the toughest buildings in the BCHL for a road team, the Bulldogs are excited to put a product on the ice that will have the “Dog Pound” full for years to come.
