CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - Hockey Canada, in partnership with Hockey P.E.I. and the City of Charlottetown, announced Thursday that ticket packages for the 2012 Esso Cup, Canada’s National Female Midget Championship, are now on sale.

The 2012 Esso Cup takes place April 22-28 at the CARI Complex in Charlottetown, P.E.I. A full-tournament ticket package for general admission to all 19 games, including the semifinals and both medal games, is available for only $50 by clicking HERE, or at the CARI Complex customer service desk.

“This is a fantastic deal for female hockey fans,” said Colin MacIsaac, chair of the 2012 Esso Cup host committee. “Get your tickets to the 2012 Esso Cup early to ensure you don’t miss any of the action when the top female Midget teams from across the country take to the ice in Prince Edward Island’s capital city.”

The 2012 Esso Cup will bring together five regional champions (Pacific, West, Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic), along with the host Capital District Cyclones, to face off for the national championship.

The gold medal game will be broadcast on TSN/RDS, official broadcasters of Hockey Canada, on Saturday, April 28 at 6 p.m. AT. Please check your local listings for broadcast times in your area. All other games, including the preliminary round, semifinals and bronze medal game, will be available via webcast at hockeycanada.fasthockey.com.

“The Esso Cup has quickly become one of the most exciting and entertaining female hockey tournaments not just in Canada, but around the world,” said Kalli Quinn, Hockey Canada’s director of female national teams. “It is a true showcase for our country’s up-and-coming young female players, and we look forward to seeing their skills on display in Charlottetown next spring.”

The Esso Cup has also become a stepping stone to Canada’s National Women’s Program. Following the 2011 event in St. Albert, Alta., six players were invited to Canada’s National Women’s Under-18 Team selection camp in Rockland, Ont., in August, including two members of the gold medal-winning Notre Dame Hounds, Olivia Howe and Taylor Woods.

For 2012 Esso Cup host committee interview requests, media in the Charlottetown area can contact marketing and communications coordinator Amanda Hamel at (902) 314-2721.
