The All-Star festivities will also include the official induction ceremony for the eighth class of the ECHL Hall of Fame.
The Solar Bears completed their first season in the ECHL in 2012-13, finishing third in the league, so this is a great honor. It’ll also be great for the city of Orlando.
The past nine ECHL All-Star Games have generated more than $1 million each for the local economy as guests, players, coaches and fans occupy hundreds of hotel rooms and spend three days in the host city.
“On behalf of our ownership team, staff, season ticket holders, sponsors, fans and the Orlando community, we want to thank the ECHL Board of Governors for their vote of confidence in our ability to host one of the League’s signature events,” said Solar Bears Managing Partner and CEO Jason Siegel.
The 2013-2014 Orlando Solar Bears schedule begins on October 18, 2013.
