Northern Irish Connections Friendship Four Ice Hockey Tournament

24 November - 25 November
The Northern Irish Connections Friendship Four Ice Hockey Tournament is returning to Belfast with four new colleges from the US competing at the SSE Arena for the Belpot Trophy.

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), Clarkson University, Providence College and the University of Maine will travel to Belfast on 24 and 25 November for the tournament.

Belfast City Council's Sister City agreement with Boston has played a vital role in helping to host this prestigious tournament since 2015 and also to see its return in 2017 and 2018.

During the 2016 tournament, 22,000 fans attended the four ice hockey games over the Amercian Thanksgiving weekend with 70 television networks showing the games across USA, Canada, United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland, making the tournament one of Northern Ireland's most televised sporting events ever.
