Cavalry Giving Free Tickets To Wildfire Evacuees
In a touching move, Canadian Premier League side Cavalry FC will offer up to 300 complimentary tickets to residents displaced due to the wildfires that have spread through both the Northwest Territories and British Columbia.
Many of those who have been forced to evacuate have found themselves in Alberta, where the government has established reception and registration centres to support those who arrived through an evacuation order.
The wildfires have heavily impacted Western Canada, where hundreds of wildfires spreading around Lake Okanagan and other areas have caused scenes of smoke, chaos, and fear as residents scramble to evacuate.
The tickets will be for the club’s upcoming match against Pacific FC, whom Cavalry have just leapfrogged for the top spot on the table.
It’s sure to be a thrilling match as the league enters its final quarter of the season. Their last meeting saw Cavalry come out 2-1 victors on the Isle, so Pacific will enter the beautiful venue of Spruce Meadows looking for some road trip revenge.
Thankfully, the air quality in Calgary is presently in a low risk situation despite the extent of the fires in neighbouring provinces.
Cavalry aren’t the only Albertan side to bring some brightness to evacuees, with Edmonton Scottish United recently having thirty young evacuees join them for a training camp.
Evacuees looking to register for complimentary tickets for Cavalry’s upcoming match can do so here.
