The Victoria Royals will host the Tri-City Americans on Friday and Saturday night at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. Friday’s contest is Remembrance Day where the Royals will honour the Canadian Armed Forces and Veterans.

SPECIAL JERSEYS: Victoria will wear new special commemorative military jerseys in honour of the Canadian Forces and Veterans for this event.
