The Heritage Classic is a series of outdoor games played in the National Hockey League (NHL). Three games have been played in the series, with a fourth scheduled for the 2016–17 NHL season in Winnipeg. To date, the match-ups have been exclusively between Canadian teams and the event serves as a counterpart to the Winter Classic. The inaugural Heritage Classic, hosted by Edmonton at Commonwealth Stadium in 2003, was the first outdoor regular season game in NHL history and its success served as the precursor to outdoor hockey games played around the world. The second, hosted by Calgary in 2011, set sponsorship and revenue records. The third was hosted in Vancouver’s BC Place stadium in 2014. The fourth game will be hosted by Winnipeg at the Investors Group Field on October, 23, 2016. The Jets will play the Edmonton Oilers.
