Molson and dating app Bumble are teaming up to give five lucky Canadian couples an epic first date, especially if they like hockey.

The Canadian beer brand will foot the bill for a night out fit for VIPs at a hockey game involving one of four Canadian partner teams: the Edmonton Oilers, Montreal Canadiens, Ottawa Senators or Toronto Maple Leafs.

“The top activity our modern Canadian hockey fan is anticipating in a post-COVID era is dating.

With the Molson Matchup, Molson -- which grew share and revenue in Canada last year -- will provide transportation to and from a hockey game in one of the four cities, premium seating, dinner and beers at the game, VIP in-arena treatment and some of the best team swag available.

“We can’t wait for couples to connect in real life and have an epic first date, hopefully with a beer in hand,” Foucaud says. “We know Molson can help singles break the ice and ignite those moments of in-person connection.”
