Where will the 2024 Memorial Cup take place?

  • Host city: Michigan.
  • Venue: Dow Event Center

Saginaw is the host city of the 2024 Memorial Cup. All games will be played at the Dow Event Center, home of the Spirit.

Not only is this the first time Saginaw has hosted the event, it is also the first time in Michigan's 104-year history that it has hosted the Memorial Cup. Saginaw was awarded the bid to host the 2024 tournament ahead of Niagara, Sault Ste. Marie and Kingston.

Who is participating in the Memorial Cup this year?

London Knight

London made it through the OHL playoffs and secured a spot in the Memorial Cup.

The Knights finished 16-2 in the playoffs and won the J. Ross Robertson Cup as league champions. London defeated Oshawa in four games to win its fifth OHL title. The Knights are making their sixth appearance in the Memorial Cup since 2005. The team is seeking its third Memorial Cup title.

Dale Hunter's team is led by a number of promising NHL talents, including Easton Cowan (Maple Leafs), Kasper Halttunen (Sharks), Oliver Bonk (Flyers), Denver Barkey (Flyers) and Sam Dickinson (eligible for the 2024 draft).

Drummondville Voltigeurs

Drummondville is competing in its fourth Memorial Cup after winning the QMJHL playoffs.

The Voltigeurs won their second Gilles-Courteau Trophy after defeating Baie-Comeau in the final series and winning 16-3 in the postseason. Drummondville, coached by Sylvain Favreau, has never won a Memorial Cup and has failed in its last three appearances in the tournament.

The Voltigeurs headliners are Ethan Gauthier (Lightning), Maveric Lamoureux (Coyotes), Vsevolod Komarov (Sabres) and Peter Repcik (eligible for the 2024 draft).

Moose Jaw Warrior

Moose Jaw has never participated in the Memorial Cup before 2024.

The Warriors are making their first appearance on the show after winning their first Ed Chynoweth Cup as WHL champions. The team defeated Portland in the final series to secure their ticket to Saginaw.

Paving the way for the Warriors are NHL talents such as Brayden Yager (Penguins), Matt Savoie (Sabres), Denton Mateychuk (Blue Jackets) and Jagger Firkus (Kraken).

Saginaw Spirit

Saginaw secured its spot in the Memorial Cup by being awarded the contract to host the tournament, thereby automatically receiving the bid.

The Spirit finished second in the OHL in points during the regular season before losing to the Knights in the Western Conference final of the OHL playoffs. While the franchise has Memorial Cup victories, it hasn't won one since the team moved to Saginaw in 2002.

Zayne Parekh, the top prospect for the 2024 draft, is one of many candidates paving the way for the Spirit. In addition, Chris Lazary's team features Owen Beck (Canadiens), Hunter Haight (Wild), Jorian Donovan (Senators), Matyas Sapovaliv (Golden Knights) and Michael Misa, the potential No. 1 pick in 2025.

Former Memorial Cup winners

While the four-team format has only existed since 1983, the history of the Memorial Cup goes back to 1919.

The three-team format with the three winners of the CHL leagues was introduced in 1972. Since its introduction, the WHL has won 19 times, the OHL 17 times and the QMJHL 14 times.

Of the active teams, the Oshawa Generals have won the most Memorial Cup titles with five.
