A year from now, the NHL’s two newest franchises will go head-to-head outdoors. The 2024 Winter Classic will be between the Seattle Kraken and Vegas Golden Knights at T-Mobile Park in Seattle. The game is set for January 1, 2024 and will represent the first regular season outdoor game for the Kraken and the second for the Golden Knights after they took on the Colorado Avalanche at Lake Tahoe in 2021.
The home of MLB’s Seattle Mariners will be the event’s backdrop, which will be the 16th Winter Classic since it debuted in 2008. It will be broadcast exclusively on TNT in the United States and Sportsnet/TVA Sports in Canada. The league announced a long-term partnership with Discover as the primary sponsor of the event, technically making the match the 2024 Discover NHL Winter Classic.
