January 4, 2016
CALGARY, Alta. – The future of women’s hockey will take to the ice this week as part of the 2016 IIHF U18 Women’s World Championship in St. Catharines, Ont., Jan. 8-15.

Hockey Canada has now released single-game tickets, available starting at $5 each, and ranging in price to $20 for the gold-medal game.

“This is exciting hockey and a great, family-friendly event. We have a variety of ticket options for fans to choose from, and we want to see the Niagara region and southern Ontario come out in full force to support Team Canada and all of the players who will be battling for gold in St. Catharines,” said Dean McIntosh, senior director of events and properties for Hockey Canada.

The IIHF U18 Women’s World Championship represents a partnership between Hockey Canada, the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association, and the Niagara Sport Commission, and will feature eight teams – Canada, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States. The championship is a showcase event for the future of women’s hockey.

Last month, Hockey Canada announced the 23-player roster selected to represent Canada at the event. In addition to the newly-released single-game tickets, a Team Canada ticket package – featuring the three Team Canada preliminary-round games, one quarter-final, one semifinal, and both the bronze-medal and gold-medal games – is available for purchase for $80 plus fees. Full-tournament ticket packages are also available, starting at $125.

Capacity crowds are expected when Hockey Canada honours three Olympic gold-medallists and recent retirees from Canada’s National Women’s Team – Jayna Hefford, Gillian Apps, and Catherine Ward – at the Jan. 9 Canada-Czech Republic match-up. The full event schedule is available online.

Canada will open up the 2016 IIHF U18 Women’s World Championship against Russia on Friday, Jan. 8 at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT, and will also play the Czech Republic on Jan. 9 at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT before a showdown with last year’s gold-medallists from the United States on Monday, Jan. 11 at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT. The bronze-medal and gold-medal games are scheduled for Friday, Jan. 15 at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT and 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT, respectively.

Canada’s National Women’s Under-18 Team has appeared in every gold medal game at the IIHF U18 Women’s World Championship, winning four gold medals (2010, 2012, 2013, 2014) and four silver (2008, 2009, 2011, 2015).
