Known as one of the greatest wrestlers of all-time, and a Canadian sports legend, Hart will be at the LEC taking part in the festivities before, during and after the Stealth game.
“Bret Hart is one of the most recognizable faces in the Sports and Entertainment industry and this will be a great opportunity for our fans to see him in person,” LEC Director of Business Development Jared Harman. He noted the team was working on getting Hart for a few months stating, “The fact that it is happening on Valentine’s Day and against his hometown Calgary Roughnecks just makes it even better.”
Fans will have three different opportunities to meet the legend on February 14:
Fans who are at the game can enter for the chance to meet ‘the Hitman’ at halftime in the FoxHole (100 lucky contestants will be chosen and will receive a 5×7″ photo to be signed in person).
There will also be a special VIP Ticket available for purchase which will include the ticket to the game, pre-game dinner in the Sapphire Sound Lounge, a meet and greet with Hart and an 8×10″ autographed photo.
