Calling All Hockey Fans: Choice Hotels Canada's Follow the Cup Playoff Hockey Pool Is Back

Pick Your Players, Rack Up the Points and Shoot for the Grand-Prize

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 30, 2012) - For one lucky Canadian the third time really is a charm when they win a trip for two to any pro hockey city in Canada with Follow the Cup - the third annual playoff hockey pool from Choice Hotels Canada.

Between April 1 and April 13, 2012, as soon as the final playoff teams are confirmed, the action starts at FollowtheCup.com where fans can sign up for free to build a dream team of 15 players from the 2012 playoff teams. Once their players are selected, participants will rack up points not only for bragging rights, but for their chance to win a hockey fan's ultimate prize including airfare to a Canadian city, accommodations, jerseys and tickets to a 2012/2013 regular season game.

"Canadian hotel operators are more than familiar with hockey teams and their fans," says Tim Oldfield, managing director, Choice Hotels Canada. "This is one of our favourite ways to connect with guests across the country and to celebrate the game Canadians love so much."

Choice Privileges rewards program members can earn a 10-point lead by entering their card number in the pool. Plus, all participants can earn additional points when they refer friends to play.

Some restrictions apply. For official contest rules visit FollowTheCup.com.
