New Semi-Pro Hockey League Coming To Bay County This Fall

Single A semi-professional hockey for adults is coming to the Bay County Civic Arena beginning in October.

Civic Arena Operations Manager Al Cowan says there will be 12 teams in the Interstate Hockey League, all based in Michigan. Cowan added the Bay City Americans will play 16 home games at the Civic Arena. The IHL will purchase a video and scoreboard combination and donate it to the Civic Arena, replacing the current scoreboard, which is over 20 years old.

The Bay County Board of Commissioners will approve a contract with the league next week after passing it in the Ways and Means Committee Tuesday, June 4.
