Stanley Cup makes unforgettable ride on the TTC

The iconic Stanley Cup made an unforgettable journey today as it rode the subway from Davisville to Union Station thanks to Rogers. The unexpected trip delighted hockey fans and unsuspecting TTC customers as they shared a subway car with the coveted trophy.


“Having the Stanley Cup ride the subway to Union Station today was all about the fans and their countless journeys throughout the years, relying on the TTC to get them safely to and from thrilling events in our sports loving city,” said Toronto Mayor Olivia Chow. “As the proud host city for the 2024 NHL All-Star Game, Toronto wanted to make a grand entrance, and we certainly did that with one of sport’s most iconic trophies riding the TTC.”


“Thank you to Rogers for thrilling our customers and for putting their faith in the TTC, just as Toronto sports fans do week in and week out,” said TTC Chair Jamaal Myers. “From all the home games, to major events like the Leafs’ thrilling playoff battles and the Raptors’ historic NBA Championship victory parade, the TTC has always been the trusted companion of sports lovers.”


“We’re proud to bring the biggest stars to Toronto for the Rogers NHL All-Star game, and Rogers is excited to kick off the festivities by bringing the Stanley Cup to one of Toronto’s most iconic locations, the TTC subway,” said Terrie Tweddle, Chief Brand and Communications Officer. “As we get ready for the All-Star Weekend, we’re looking forward to more exciting events and fan experiences to come.”


It’s no secret that the TTC is also the preferred mode of travel for many elite players. They know that riding the TTC is not just a means to an end; it’s a pre-game ritual. Perhaps it’s the energy of the city coursing through the subway tunnels or the friendly banter among passengers that fuels their competitive spirit. Whatever it is, the TTC has become an integral part of their game-day routine.


“At the TTC, we consider it a privilege to provide safe and reliable transit for sports fans, elite athletes, and all Torontonians. Whether it’s a game day or any other day, we are committed to taking our customers wherever they need to go,” said TTC CEO Rick Leary. “We are particularly grateful to Rogers for making today’s historic TTC ride with the Stanley Cup possible. The experience has brought immense joy to our customers, adding to the excitement leading up to the NHL All-Star Game.”


While the Stanley Cup was on display at Union Station today, fans and commuters had the unique opportunity to get up close and take selfies with the cherished trophy.
