The 15.11.2018, during the game that sees Lugano face Geneva Servette, the HC Lugano has prepared a special program to celebrate the 90th birthday of the “Presidentissimo” Geo Mantegazza.
Born the 12.11.2018, Geo Mantegazza became president of the HC Lugano in the 1978/79 season until the 1990/91 season, reaching a promotion and winning 4 national titles.
Inspired by the famous green sweater worn by Geo during the “Grande Lugano” ages, the Cornèr Arena and the jerseys of the players will become green.
The pre-game schedule will be anticipated at 19.25 and will include a special tribute for the birthday, then some of the greatest players of those years will go on the ice.
The climax of the evening will be the symbolic faceoff that Geo will make at the center of the rink, with the warmth of the fans and a green choreography.
To pay tribute to the “Presidentissimo” we ask to our fans to come at the game with some gadgets form the ’80s and wearing green clothes.
It’s available from now a limited series T-Shirt purchasable online or at the Shop ’41.
The jerseys worn by the players will be signed by Geo Mantegazza and put to auction.
