The Windsor Express and the University of Windsor Lancers have teamed up for the fourth annual Clash at the Colosseum, taking place on February 8th, 2017 at Caesars Windsor.

This year’s event will feature a triple-header of basketball games pitting Windsor against teams from the Waterloo region.

The Express will face off against league newcomers the Kitchener-Waterloo Titans at 8pm, while prior to the Express game the Lancers will take on the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks in an Ontario University doubleheader. The Lancer women will tip-off at 3pm followed by the men’s game at 5pm.

“This game is a highlight to our season and our organization does a good job of making this game special,” said Windsor Express Vice-President of Basketball Operations and Head Coach Bill Jones. “This year is also special because the University’s men’s and women’s teams will play before our game and the electricity will be awesome.”

Fans who purchase a ticket to this season’s Clash at the Colosseum will be able to attend all three games. Tickets will be on sale online December 7th, 2016 and are available at www.windsorexpress.ca.

A special discounted ticket will be available on campus in the athletic department for all current University of Windsor students.

“The Lancers, along with the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks, are excited to partner with the Windsor Express as participants in the 4th Annual Clash at the Colosseum,” said University of Windsor Director of Athletics Mike Havey. “The opportunity to play in this world class entertainment venue in a “Battle against Waterloo” provides a unique and exciting opportunity for our basketball teams to bring our product to a wider audience.”

A limited number of reserved courtside seats will be available for purchase directly through the Windsor Express. Email [email protected] or call 519-800-3665 for any courtside seating inquiries.
