Ice Hockey UK general secretary Andy French says the response to Great Britain’s international challenge game with Canada next year has been “phenomenal”.

Nearly 5,000 tickets were sold on yesterday’s first day of sale for the match-up with the world number one ranked team on Tuesday 5th May 2020 at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham.

The game will form part of both sides’ preparations for the World Championship in Switzerland later in May, when they will go head-to-head in Lausanne.

French said: “Playing Canada is a huge honour for Great Britain and it is fantastic they agreed to come to the UK as part of their World Championship preparations.

“It shows how far the programme has come in the past few years and full credit should go to Pete Russell and his players for what they’ve achieved which, in turn, means a top-ranked nation is interested in facing GB.

“We expected tickets to be popular for such an exciting game but the response on the first day was phenomenal.”

Tickets are available via the arena website, by phone at 0843 373 3000 or at the box office in person.
