The Kelowna Rockets find out Wednesday whether they will host the 2020 Memorial Cup.

WHL commissioner Ron Robison will announce the decision at approximately 2:40 p.m. PT, following a meeting of the league’s board of governors in Calgary.

Kelowna is bidding against Kamloops and Lethbridge, Alta., for the hosting rights to the major junior national championship, a four-team tournament that will take place over 10 days in May 2020.

Each of the three cities will make a 15-minute presentation, after which governors will have 15 minutes to ask questions.

The Kamloops Blazers will be first on the clock, followed by the Rockets and, lastly, the Lethbridge Hurricanes.

The governors of the 22-team league will then vote and a winning bid will be determined.

The Rockets successfully hosted the 2004 Memorial Cup at Prospera Place, winning that tournament on home ice for the franchise’s only national championship to date.
