To celebrate their first franchise championship with fans the Windsor Express 2014 NBL of Canada Champions will hold a victory parade in Downtown Windsor followed by festivities at the riverfront on Saturday, April, 26, 2014.
The parade route will begin at Ouellette Ave. and Erie Street at 2pm, and proceed down Ouellette to Train Engine 5588, known as the “Spirit of Windsor” in Dieppe Park. Players and coaches will celebrate with fans at the riverfront making themselves available for autographs and photos.
On August 1, 2012, the Windsor Express team was officially announced at the “Spirit of Windsor” location. Just two short years later they have emerged the 2014 NBL of Canada Champions for the first time.
The 2014 NBL of Canada Championships were intense for the Express. They overcame elimination twice, bounced back from a 3-1 series deficit, and forced a Game 7. On April 17, 2014, the Windsor Express defeated the Prince Edward Island Storm 121-106 on home court at the WFCU Centre to bring the The National Basketball League of Canada championship trophy to Windsor.
