CALGARY, Alta. – After a successful season-ticket holder and priority draw sales window, Hockey Canada has announced a limited number of ticket packages for the 2023 IIHF World Junior Championship in Halifax, N.S., and Moncton, N.B., are available for purchase to the general public.
“With less than two months until the World Juniors makes its highly-anticipated return to the East Coast, we are excited to provide more fans across Canada and around the world with the opportunity to be a part of a holiday tradition like none other,” said Grant MacDonald, local event lead for the 2023 IIHF World Junior Championship. “We were pleased with the success of the priority draw and have seen first-hand the passion fans have to attend this event in Halifax and Moncton, and we know fans will be thrilled to have an opportunity to be a part of this unique and world-class experience.”
A 21-game ticket package is available for the Scotiabank Centre in Halifax and starts as low as $1,050 plus fees per package for upper-bowl seating. A lower-bowl package is also available for $1,200 plus fees. Both options include one ticket to each game in Halifax, including all Team Canada preliminary-round games, two quarterfinals, both semifinals and the bronze and gold medal games. The package will also include one ticket to each pre-tournament game played at the Scotiabank Centre, with the pre-tournament schedule set to be announced in the coming weeks.
A 15-game package is also available for the Avenir Centre in Moncton, which starts as low $575 plus fees. The package includes one ticket to all 10 preliminary-round games in Moncton featuring Latvia, Finland, Slovakia, Switzerland and the United States, as well as one ticket to the two quarterfinals played in Moncton. It will also include one ticket to each pre-tournament game at the Avenir Centre, which will feature two Team Canada games against opponents that will be announced at a later date.
With the unveiling of the official tournament schedule in September, fans from coast-to-coast-coast have started planning their trips to the Maritimes for the 2023 IIHF World Junior Championship.

New logo unveiled for Canadian-hosted World Juniors
Hockey Canada has also unveiled a new logo for the World Juniors, which will feature a consistent design for all future IIHF World Junior Championships hosted in Canada starting with the 2023 event.
The logo includes a white silhouette of a hockey player layered over a fragmented red Maple Leaf on a black background to reflect Hockey Canada’s colours. The Maple Leaf, which displays various tones of red, symbolizes the 10 provinces and three territories of Canada as well as the country’s diverse demographic. The logo will feature similar design elements for future World Juniors hosted in Canada to continue to build brand recognition in one of the marquee events on the hockey calendar.
“The passion Canadian hockey fans have for the World Juniors is second to none, and we believe we have designed a logo that is uniquely Canadian and matches the passion we see every holiday season,” said Dean McIntosh, vice-president of events and properties with Hockey Canada. “We are grateful to the International Ice Hockey Federation for allowing us to create a consistent look for Canadian-hosted World Juniors. This is something that helps us build recognition in the event each time it is hosted here while representing Canadians in all corners of our country.”
