Hockey Canada Announces ‘Capital City Challenge’

The Nation’s Capital will serve as the backdrop for the Capital City Challenge, a four-team tournament featuring Canada’s National Women’s Team and three National Men’s Under-17 teams.

Preliminary-round action kicks off on Friday, Nov. 26 at The Arena at TD Place, home of the Ottawa 67’s.  Canada’s centralization roster will face Team Canada White in the tournament opener at 12 p.m. ET, followed by Team Canada Black taking on Team Canada Red at 7 p.m. ET.

The Capital City Challenge will serve as a one-time event to replace the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, which was cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, while providing an opportunity for Canada’s National Women’s Team to compete as part of its centralization schedule.

Preliminary-round action concludes on Monday, Nov. 29, followed by the semifinals on Tuesday, Nov. 30. The medal games will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 1.

Tickets will go on sale on Thursday, Nov. 4 at 10 a.m. ET.
