The Carolina Hurricanes will host the 2021 NHL Stadium Series outdoor game, set for February 20, 2021 at Carter-Finley Stadium. The Hurricanes’ opponent for the game will be determined at a later date.
“We’re proud to be the first NHL market in the Southeast to host an outdoor game,” said Hurricanes CEO, Owner and Governor Tom Dundon. “We’re going to do everything we can to make as many seats available as possible, because we know how high demand will be for this game, and the epic tailgate that will accompany it.”
The 2021 Navy Federal Credit Union NHL Stadium Series will be the 12th NHL Stadium Series game and the 32nd NHL regular-season outdoor game overall. The event will mark the first time the Hurricanes have participated in an outdoor game. Carter-Finley Stadium will become the sixth college football facility to host one of the NHL’s outdoor games, joining Michigan Stadium, Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium (Navy), TCF Bank Stadium (University of Minnesota), Notre Dame Stadium and Falcon Stadium (Air Force).
Located in Raleigh, Carter-Finley Stadium is the home of North Carolina State’s football program. Information regarding Stadium Series ticket pricing and availability will be announced at a later date.
Another confirmed venue for an outdoor NHL game in 2021 is Target Field, home of MLB’s Minnesota Twins. It is slated to be the site of the Winter Classic on January 1, with the contest to be hosted by the Minnesota Wild.
