Eurolanche Invasion XII kicks off in a month

Eurolanche Invasion XII kicks off in a month The Fan Club’s twelfth trip to the US will begin exactly one month from now, on February 11, 2020.

During the 2019-20 season, the Eurolanche Fan Club is organizing its twelfth trip to Colorado under the name Eurolanche Invasion XII. A total of 12 Fan Club members from four European countries will take part in the upcoming Invasion. Together, they will spend two and a half weeks overseas, during which they’re scheduled to attend five Colorado Avalanche games at the Pepsi Center, one at Air Force Academy’s Falcon Stadium as part of the 2020 NHL Stadium Series and two away games in Los Angeles and Anaheim.

We’ll tell you more about both the participating Eurolanche members, as well as about the Invasion XII schedule in the upcoming weeks. But first, let’s take a look at some of the most interesting numbers in regard to the project itself:

2 500 kilometers (1 600 miles) – the lowest estimated distance Invasion XII will travel in a rented minivan between Los Angeles and Denver (the route will include several stops and four overnight stays in motels) + additional kilometers/miles during trips in Colorado
