Friendship Four Festival of Hockey 2016

25 November - 26 November
The Friendship Four ice-hockey festival is returning to Belfast this year with 4 new colleges from the US competing at the SSE Arena for the Belpot Trophy.

Quinnipiac University, the University of Vermont, St Lawrence University and the University of Massachusetts will travel to Belfast on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 November for the tournament. Each of the teams compete in the NCAA Division One - the top level of ice-hockey in the US.

Thanks to the Belfast-Boston Sister City Partnership, the 2015 Festival of Hockey and Festival of STEM was a huge success as the Odyssey Trust opened the doors of W5 as well as The SSE Arena, Belfast for tens of thousands of young people to take part. In addition, over 20,000 fans attended the four ice-hockey games over Thanksgiving weekend with hundreds of thousands more watching on Television across North America as the NCAA took to the ice to play competitive games outside the USA for the first time.

Information on ticketing will be announced in due course.
