only 2300 people (Friday) and 2500 (Saturday) at the home games a couple weeks back.  compared to over 4500 season average before the pandemic.

Well, since the Royals have rivalled the old Cougars for WHL futility lately, hardly surprised that people who have gotten out of the habit of going to games haven't been inspired to return. At least they were competitive in last night's outing.

Lol yeah, their 1-11-2 record probably has something to do with that

Victoria only supports winning teams. In addition, a lot of historic Royals support has come from the 55+ crowd and I am sure some are staying home due to covid

That’s a common trope over the years. But not sure it’s accurate.

Pre-tournament play in the world junior hockey event was pushed back Saturday because of the COVID-19 surge.

 

Hockey Canada said it amended the schedule due to the "changing epidemiological situation" surrounding the omicron variant of COVID-19. The warm-up games were set to start Sunday, with Canada scheduled to play Switzerland in Red Deer. The tournament is set to start Sunday, Dec. 26.

 

While the updated schedule hasn't been finalized, the pre-tournament games won't start until Thursday. Hockey Canada also paused the sale of tickets for the pre-tournament games. Eleven games were scheduled as part of the pre-tournament schedule, with each team playing a minimum of two games.

 

The teams arrived in Canada this week. Players and staff were required to produce two negative tests before departing for Canada and have been tested every day since their arrival.

The Victoria Royals have joined the growing list of junior hockey teams being shut down for COVID-19 protocols with seven players on the list. The Royals ceased hockey-related team activities Wednesday night with the scheduled games Friday and Saturday in Prince George against the Cougars postponed as the result of “multiple ­players and staff” being added to the WHL COVID-19 protocol list due to exhibiting symptoms or ­having tested positive for COVID-19.
