The Spokane Chiefs are part of the Brett Sports family. In 1990, the Brett brothers – Bobby, George, Ken, and John – bought the Spokane Chiefs, their second professional sports franchise.
For more than 60 years the city of Spokane has had a love affair with the game of hockey. The Spokane Chiefs are just one of many franchises that have captured the Spokane community through the years. Very few sports have a history as rich as hockey in Spokane. The Chiefs look to continue the winning tradition which includes: two Memorial Cup Championships in 1991 & 2008, two WHL Championships in 1991 & 2008 and four Western Conference Championships in 1991, 1996, 2000 & 2008. Over 60 alumni have gone on to play in the National Hockey League.
The 16-20 year old players that comprise the roster have the pleasure to call the Spokane Veteran’s Memorial Arena home. Opening In 1996, the 10,366 seat facility has already hosted the most prestigious of events, the 1998 Memorial Cup.
In 1986, the Bretts acquired the Spokane Indians – the (now) single-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies. In addition to the Spokane sports franchises, the Bretts also own and operate two other single-A minor league baseball teams, the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, an affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and the Tri-City Dust Devils, an affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels. The Quakes play in the California League and are located about 90 minutes East of Los Angeles. The Dust Devils play in the Northwest League and are located in Pasco, Washington.
Each Brett Sports team has its own unique character, but they all share a common commitment: to provide quality teams, affordable family entertainment, and superior customer service for every fan.
