The White Out

The Winnipeg Whiteout is a hockey tradition that dates back to 1987 when hockey fans in Winnipeg were asked to wear white clothing to home playoff games in Winnipeg, creating a very intimidating effect and atmosphere.

It was created as a response to the "C of Red" created by fans of the Calgary Flames, whom the home town Winnipeg Jets were facing in the first round of the 1987 playoffs. The Jets would eliminate the Flames in six games, four wins to two, and fans wore white for every playoff game thereafter. Fans coined it the "Whiteout".

When the Jets moved to Phoenix as the Coyotes, fans quickly adopted the "Whiteout" tradition for their playoff games.
