EDMONTON, Alta. – SkipTheDishes, Canada's largest and most popular food delivery network, is excited to announce a multi-year partnership with Hockey Canada, the national governing body for grassroots hockey in the country and the home of Team Canada.

The partnership comes just ahead of the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship, where the best under-20 hockey players from Canada and around the world will compete from Dec. 25-Jan. 5 in Edmonton. Skip will also serve as the Official Food Delivery App of the 2021 World Juniors, providing Team Canada athletes, coaches and support staff with Skip Credits to support some of Edmonton’s best local restaurants as they vie for the gold medal while competing in the bubble.

“We are thrilled to welcome SkipTheDishes as the Official Food Delivery App of Hockey Canada and the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship,” says Scott Smith, president and chief operating officer of Hockey Canada. “Skip’s technology and cross-country delivery network make it the perfect partner for fans, helping them support local restaurants while cheering on Team Canada safely at home this year.”

Many Canadians look forward to the World Juniors as a part of their holiday season traditions, and the partnership will help deliver the game-day experience fans crave directly to their homes.

“As a proud Canadian brand, we’re excited to grow Skip’s support of hockey nation-wide through this partnership with Hockey Canada,” says Kevin Edwards, CEO of SkipTheDishes. “I couldn’t be more excited to kick off this partnership with the World Juniors in Edmonton. I personally look forward to the tournament every year, and we can’t wait to cheer on Team Canada with fans across the country.”
