Almost a decade after winning Olympic gold, one of women’s hockey most epic rivalries will return to BC.

Aptly named the “Rivalry Series”, the Canadian and American national women’s hockey teams will play in a five-game schedule this winter, with a stop at Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre on February 3rd.

Out of the five scheduled games, Canada is set to host three of them – the first Canadian stop seeing the rivals duke it out in Moncton, New Brunswick on December 17th.

Resuming in Victoria on February 3rd, the Canadian portion of the series comes to an end at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena in Vancouver on February 5th.

The American portion of the series also features games on December 14th in Hartford, Connecticut, and February 8th in Anaheim, California.

The Series was first launched earlier in 2019 as a chance to feature the top players from Canada and the U.S. to fans in both countries – after drawing over 17,000 fans for home games in London and Toronto, Canada ended up winning the previous series with a 2-0 victory at the finale in Detroit.

Tickets for the games start at $18 and will go on sale November 6th at 10 a.m. on the Hockey Canada website. Group pricing options for 10 or more tickets will also be available starting November 13th.
