The 2010 Memorial Cup was a 4-team round-robin format tournament played during May 14–23, 2010 in Brandon, Manitoba. It was the 92nd annual Memorial Cup competition and determined the major junior ice hockey champion of the Canadian Hockey League (CHL). The Western Hockey League (WHL) announced on October 15, 2008, that the Brandon Wheat Kings were chosen to host the event at the Keystone Centre.[1][2] Other tournament participants included the Windsor Spitfires, champions of the Ontario Hockey League, the Moncton Wildcats, champions of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and the Calgary Hitmen, champions of the Western Hockey League. The Spitfires went 4–0 in the tournament, defeating Brandon 9–1 in the championship to claim their second straight Memorial Cup title.

Potential hosts[edit]

The Brandon Wheat Kings, Everett Silvertips and Kelowna Rockets submitted applications to host the 2010 MasterCard Memorial Cup. Bid presentations took place on October 15, 2008 in Calgary, Alberta.[3] The decision to award the hosting of the 2010 MasterCard Memorial Cup to Brandon was made by a majority vote of the WHL Board of Governors.[2]

Just prior to the August application deadline, both the province of Manitoba and City of Brandon brought forth a combined $5,000,000 (CAD) in improvements to the Keystone Centre, in an effort to boost the Wheat Kings' chances at becoming host.[2]
