Worcester State signs on with Canal District rink
Worcester State University has signed a partnership agreement to serve as an anchor tenant at Worcester Sports Center, beginning next fall.
Worcester Sports Center, under construction at the former PresMet site on Harding Street, is slated to open in the summer of 2017 and will host the Worcester State men’s hockey team, which will include all home games, practices and a permanent locker room.
“I am excited to announce that Worcester State University will be joining us as an anchor tenant in 2017 with their men’s ice hockey team,” Worcester Sports Center’s managing partner Cliff Rucker said. “Partnering with Worcester State epitomizes our commitment that this is truly a Worcester community resource – built for the residents and student athletes of Worcester.”
Worcester State joins the Becker College men’s and women’s teams [first in the Sun!] and Worcester Academy; as well as youth organizations Worcester Junior Sharks and Junior Crusaders in signing on as initial tenants along with Rucker’s Worcester Railers ECHL minor league hockey team, which is expected to begin league play in October 2017.
