BCHL to review Warriors’ sale

The West Kelowna Warriors days at Royal LePage Place may soon be coming to an end.

The BC Hockey League board of governors has directed its franchise committee to review an application to move the West Kelowna Warriors to North Delta.

The board announced it would review the transfer application following its semi-annual board of governors meeting held in Richmond.

The committee will make a recomendation to the board about what the best course of action will be for the BCHL with regard to the potential sale of the Warriors.

EXTRA: Fans express sorrow over sale of franchise

“This is a result of talks between West Kelowna Warriors owner Mark Cheyne and a group interested in purchasing his franchise and moving it to North Delta’s Sungod Arena,” the league stated in a release.

“It is the responsibility of the franchise committee to make a recommendation to the board of governors as to what would be best course of action for the BCHL and all its member clubs in this matter. The franchise committee is also to determine a timeline to when this potential transfer would be voted on by the board.”
