There'll be much more than world class hockey action during the upcoming World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.

Five Canadian all-star teams, four European teams and the U.S.A. club are scheduled to provide exciting competition in the international tournament that runs from December 28 to January 4 at Mile One Stadium in St. John's and the Glacier in Mount Pearl.

Rick Comerford, chair of special events for the organizing committee, has announced that the 20,000 square feet of the St. John's Convention Center will be utilized for "Fan Fest" which he describes as "an interesting and very worthwhile addition to the elite competition that it will accompany."

"Fan Fest is designed to provide the ultimate hockey experience and will include interactive games, exhibits and live webcast conversations with hockey personalities. Since the Convention Centre is connected to Mile One Stadium by a glass pedway, that makes for real convenience." Fan Fest will run from December 29 to January 4 with opening times coinciding with games at Mile One. Fan Fest will be open daily two hours prior to the first game and will close one hour after the late game. Admisison will be $3.00 for adults and $2.00 for children.

"Fan Fest will feature the Legends of Hockey display, the Team Canada Photo Collection, an assortment of displays commemorating the Toronto Maple Leafs history, and impressive memorabilia from the provincial hockey hall of fame in Corner Brook, including a black and white video."

Comerford promised "great enjoyment from interactive games such as Show Down and Shut Out from the Canadian Hockey Hall of Fame and Toronto Maple Leaf games like Slap Shot, Puck, Mini-Rink and Table Hockey. It will all be popular." He went on to explain that using the latest technology and the support of Hockey Canada, there will be live connections to hockey personalities throughout Canada for discussions on issues of interest and importance to hockey.

"We know the hockey play of the Challenge will be great and we are looking to providing yet another great aspect of this international event," Comerford said.
