Great Britain Women will take part in the 2018 Winter Classic in Sheffield.

The tournament features EIHA Conference teams at U11, U13 and U15 age groups.

The events will take place at Ice Sheffield from 28th to 30th December.

JLMC event organiser, Gordon Douglas, said: “We are pleased to finally get the details confirmed. Ice time has been at a premium with a charity game on the Friday night and NIHL on Saturday night.

“I am grateful to Ice Sheffield for working hard with us to free up slots on pad two to enable the programme to go ahead without too many early mornings and late nights.

“For the U11 and U13 it’s their second Conference Series event, while the U15 will benefit from the addition of GB’s women who are preparing for U18 and senior world championships in the new year.

“It should be another fun weekend of junior ice hockey.”

Details of the webcast coverage from broadcasters will follow in due course, while Sheffield Steeldogs are working on a ticket offer for their NIHL North 1 game on Saturday evening for players and staff involved in the JLMC Winter Classic.
