Manitoba Moose-Iowa Wild Rivalry

Rival Team: Iowa Wild

Manitoba Moose Stadium Guide

In Game

The people of Winnipeg love hockey, and they go all out to support both the Jets and Moose. The fans come out in strong numbers to watch future Jets stars hit the ice with the Moose creating an intense and fun in-game atmosphere at every Moose game. If you want to see the future of the Winnipeg Jets, then get tickets to a Moose game.

Moose games also present a fantastic opportunity to see a game at the MTS Centre for a fraction of the cost of a Jets game. On the main level, you’ll be able to stop by the Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame and Museum, which has tributes to all the greatest players to come from Manitoba including Terry Sawchuk and Bobby Clarke. There are also several banners hanging around the arena showing off the history of the Jets and Moose, so keep an eye out for those as well.

Lastly, you won’t leave the MTS Center hungry thanks to the great selection of restaurants and concession stands found inside the arena. The MTS Center is home to four restaurants, two of which take reservations meaning you won’t have to worry about missing any of the action due to long waits. If you don’t want to shell out the cash or take the time to sit down and eat then grab a Jumbo Jet Dog, Tim Horton’s, or pizza from Pizza Pizza.

A Moose game is the next best alternative to a Jets game so if you can’t get to a Jets game for some reason, then make sure to get tickets to a Moose game during your visit to Winnipeg.
