As part of last week's Speech from the Throne the  Province of Manitoba declared that 2015 will be celebrated as the Year of Sport in Manitoba.

Sport Manitoba is thrilled about the announcement as we look forward to exciting national events coming to our province that will inspire our youth and leave legacies for our sport partners.

Next year more than 200,000 people will enjoy marquee sporting events right here in Manitoba - including the Grey Cup, the FIFA Women's World Cup, the Telus Cup regional qualifier in Dauphin and the RBC Cup in Portage la Prairie. These events will boost our economy by $100 million.

Sport Manitoba looks forward to working with the Province of Manitoba in developing strategies related to the celebration of 2015 being recognized as the Year of Sport in Manitoba.  For more from the Throne Speech please click here.
