#14 - Varsity Reds Named University Cup Host

TOP 15 OF 2015-2016: #14 – UNB NAMED HOST OF 2017 & 2018 CIS HOCKEY CHAMPIONSHIPS

 

Long before celebrating a sixth CIS men’s hockey title, the Varsity Reds knew one thing… they’d be in the 2017 tournament. And the 2018 tournament.

The CIS named UNB as host of the 2017 and 2018 tournaments, in October.

It will mark the fifth and sixth time the Varsity Reds have hosted the event, having done so previously in 2003, 2004, 2011 and 2012.

“We feel privileged that the CIS has entrusted us with this event,” said John Richard, UNB’s Director of Athletics. “We’ll put our very best effort forward to provide a memorable experience for all involved.”

The 2017 tournament runs March 16-19, at the Aitken University Centre.

The 2018 tournament will run March 15-18.
