Paradise ready to host 2019 Canadian Tire Para Hockey Cup

Canada, Czech Republic, Russia and the United States are ready to face off in Newfoundland and Labrador

November 30, 2019

PARADISE, N.L. – Paradise is set to open its doors to the world as four teams go for gold at the 2019 Canadian Tire Para Hockey Cup, Dec. 1-7.

The Paradise Double Ice Complex will welcome Canada, the Czech Republic, Russia and the United States. Canada has won the tournament, known as the World Sledge Hockey Challenge until 2017, five times, most recently in 2013, while the U.S. is looking for a sixth-consecutive gold medal.

"It is a very exciting time right now; the rink is rebranded, volunteers are ready and we can't wait to see these amazing athletes provide lasting memories for themselves and the fans,” said Don Dyke, chair of the host organizing committee. “This is an event we haven't seen before, and fans shouldn’t miss the opportunity to see the best of the best on the ice, including our own Liam Hickey playing for Team Canada."

In the past, the event has created more than $1 million in local economic impact, with the net proceeds of the event benefiting local minor and para hockey programs in Paradise and the surrounding area.

Full-event ticket packages are on sale for $69 at HockeyCanada.ca/Tickets. Packages include all six preliminary-round games, both semifinals and the bronze and gold medal games. All preliminary-round games, the semifinals and the bronze medal game will be streamed live at HockeyCanada.ca. The gold medal game will be shown live on TSN, Hockey Canada’s official broadcast partner, on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 6 p.m. AT/2 p.m. PT; check local listings for details.
