Royals fans encouraged to keep tickets to cancelled games for next year’s season

Final standings for 2019-20 WHL regular season determined using win percentages

Following the conclusion of the WHL 2019-20 regular season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Victoria Royals cancelled the four remaining games.

The final standings for the 2019-20 WHL regular season will be determined using win percentages for all clubs. This means the Victoria Royals concluded the season third in the B.C. Division with a record of 32-24-6-2 for 72 points in 64 games and a win percentage of 0.563.

According to a statement, the league will continue to monitor ongoing public health developments and will make “every possible effort to conduct the WHL playoffs at a later date.”

Fans are encouraged to hold on to their tickets for the three cancelled home games, as these tickets will be valid for the 2020 WHL playoffs or the 2020-21 WHL regular season.

All Royal ticket pack members will receive full details as part of their 2020-21 renewal package to be sent out at a later date.
