SASKATOON PREPARES FOR 2018 4 NATIONS CUP WITH CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS
Day passes, ticket packages available now for purchase
SASKATOON, Sask. – As Saskatoon prepares to welcome the top women’s hockey nations for the 4 Nations Cup Nov. 6-10, local organizers are looking for volunteers to help deliver the world-class event being hosted at the SaskTel Centre.
The 4 Nations Cup, renamed in 2000 with the addition of a fourth team, brings together the world’s leading nations in women’s hockey – Canada, the United States, Sweden and Finland – for five days of high-paced, international competition. The City of Bridges will host national team players and staff from the four participating countries, and organizers are now accepting online applications for the many volunteer roles needed to support the event – from transportation, to team and media services, and fan experience.
“The 4 Nations Cup is an outstanding showcase of international women’s hockey, and we are proud to be one of only six other Canadian cities to have hosted this event,” said E.J. Babey, chair of the 2018 4 Nations Cup host organizing committee. “It takes a lot of volunteer time and commitment to make an event like this a success, but I know that Saskatoon is filled with passionate hockey fans who will step up to ensure this is an unforgettable experience for the teams and fans alike.”
Saskatchewan has produced tremendous female hockey talent that has represented Canada on the world stage – and at previous 4 Nations Cup events specifically – including Dana Antal, Kelly Bechard, Hayley Wickenheiser, Colleen Sostorics, and Saskatoon’s own Emily Clark.
“The Saskatchewan Hockey Association is extremely excited to see the 2018 4 Nations Cup come to Saskatoon in November. It is a great opportunity to promote female hockey and the SHA is currently undergoing a lot of extremely positive change to the structure of female hockey in the province in support of its terrific growth,” said Kelly McClintock, general manager of the Saskatchewan Hockey Association. “The 4 Nations Cup will provide young girls in our province with a glimpse of who the best female players in the world are, who they can emulate their game after and who can be their new role model.”
“Playing on home ice is a special opportunity for any player,” said Gina Kingsbury, Hockey Canada’s director of national women’s teams. “The fan support brings another level of play to your game, and it’s a feeling that as a player you just can’t describe. Saskatoon is a hockey city, and we’re looking forward to being there in November.”
The 4 Nations Cup has only been hosted in Canada seven other times in its nearly 25-year history, and provides a unique opportunity for fans to see these elite athletes over a five-day, eight-game schedule. Full event ticket packages, as well as day passes beginning at $30, can be purchase at HockeyCanada.ca/Tickets.
