The Ontario Women’s Hockey Association (OWHA) is hosting the 2018 Global Game in cooperation with Hockey Canada and the IIHF. The Canada segment of the Global Game will take place on Sunday, March 11th, 2018 at the Iceland Arena in Mississauga with festivities commencing at 5:30pm EST.
40 Federations. 50 hours. ONE female game around the world.
The global game is an International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) Initiative that is played across 40 countries, in one continuous game and aims to unite female hockey players. Over two and a half days, these countries will host 1-hour hockey games in succession beginning in New Zealand, before making its way across six continents until reaching its final destination in Canada.
Each country that participates identifies players that will represent Team Blue and Team White. As the game wraps up in one federation, it picks up in the next with the score continuing to grow. As the game surges on, females from all over the world are united as teammates!
This year, Hockey Canada will be putting together two teams of players from across all ten branches to participate in the Canadian leg of the game. The Ontario Women’s Hockey Association has a full weekend of activities and events planned for the participants, as well as participating in this Global Game.
You can follow along with the Girls’ Global Game through the IIHF website. Each country will be reporting their scores and summaries of events as the game travels around the globe:
