ABOUT THE WHA 50TH ANNIVERSARY

History of the World Hockey Association
The WHA had a great impact on changing the game of hockey in North America. The impossible happened. The fledgling league challenged the long-established National Hockey League (NHL), and for seven seasons presented an entertaining version of our great game.  And it all started as the puck dropped on October 11, 1972, when the Alberta Oilers defeated the Ottawa Nationals, 7-4, and the Cleveland Crusaders shutout the Quebec Nordiques, 2-0.

50th Anniversary Celebration

Fifty years later we are coming together to reminisce and fondly remember the efforts of the people and players who made the WHA happen for seven seasons.
We will celebrate the players of the era that entertained the fans and the owners and front office executives that made the league work, including all the folks that contributed to the success of the WHA: officials, media, sponsors, celebrity admirers, and, most importantly, the undying fans and supporters that gave their loyalty to the cause.

Why We Celebrate

We want to commemorate all the hard-working people involved in making history, and preserve the WHA for years to come.

Part of all proceeds will be used to create a virtual vault of WHA history so that we can preserve this part of hockey and sports history for future generations and to aid retired player/executive alumni that need assistance in their remaining years.
