“Tickets for the World Juniors in Vancouver 2006 and Ottawa 2009 sold out one year in advance,” says Hugh Vassos, senior vice-president of business and marketing, 2010 WJC host organizing committee. “That sets the bar high - and I know Saskatchewan residents will enjoy selling out our 2010 event in record time. We have excellent seats available at various price levels in Saskatoon and Regina, and an affordable payment plan that will appeal to many.”

Ten teams will compete in the event, with a Saskatoon pool and a Regina pool. More championship information is at www.hockeycanada.ca.
