Game Schedule and Ticket Information Announced for 2006 Four Nations Cup in November in Kitchener
July 4, 2006

KITCHENER, ON – Hockey Canada, in partnership with the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association (OWHA) and the City of Kitchener, has announced the game schedule and ticket information for the 2006 Four Nations Cup. The 2006 Four Nations Cup will be held from November 7-11, 2006 at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium Complex (The Aud) and will showcase the world’s top four ranked countries in women’s hockey: Canada, Finland, Sweden and USA.

As well as being the two-time defending Olympic Champions, Canada is the reigning 4 Nations Cup champion after claiming victory at last year’s 4 Nations Cup in Finland. Canada has won eight (’05, ‘04, ’02, ’01, ’00, ’99, ’98, ’96) of ten Nation Cup events, dating back to the inaugural event in 1996 (USA won in 19).

“After the Olympics and the World Championship, the Four Nations Cup is the top international women’s hockey event,” said Julie Healy, Hockey Canada’s Director, Female Hockey. “The 2006 Four Nations Cup represents a very important step for our Team as we prepare for the 2007 World Championship in Winnipeg, and even the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.”

Canada has hosted the Nations Cup on three previous occasions. In 2002, when Kitchener hosted this event for the first time, Canada defeated USA 4-2 in the gold medal final, then in 1999, Canada defeated USA 3-2 in the Three Nations final in Montreal, Quebec while Ottawa, Ontario saw Canada defeat USA 1-0 in the 1996 Three Nations Cup final.

"The Ontario Women’s Hockey Association is extremely pleased to be working together with Hockey Canada and the City of Kitchener on this event", said Fran Rider, Executive Director of the OWHA. "Every game in the schedule will provide exciting hockey as Sweden and Canada vie to return to the gold medal final as in the recent Winter Olympics. The United States is determined to return to the championship game while Finland, the team holding the most bronze medals in International Women’s play, gears up to follow Sweden’s lead and advance their standing."

"We are hoping to repeat the success we had when we hosted the Women's World Hockey Championship in 1997 and the 2002 4 Nations Cup where new standards were set for ticket sales for women’s hockey", said Keith Baulk, Director of Enterprise for the City of Kitchener. “We anticipate the 2006 4 Nations Cup will have standing room only crowds so it is important to purchase tickets today.”

“Hockey Canada is looking forward to a great event in Kitchener in November,” said Hockey Canada President Bob Nicholson. “Kitchener has always been a great supporter of Canada’s National Teams and in particular of our National Women’s Team. I know that the hockey fans from the area will enjoy watching women’s hockey at its best.”
