NEWS: players all set for Global Girls Game in Sheffield on Saturday
February 12, 2019
This year’s UK Global Girls’ Game takes place on Saturday in Sheffield.
Some of the brightest young prospects from the GB Women’s programme will go head to head at Ice Sheffield between 4pm and 5pm
The Global Girls’ Game is a worldwide IIHF ice hockey event where women’s games take place across the world on one weekend.
With the various time zones across the world, it means a game is taking place nearly every hour.
Each game sees two teams go head to head, named Team Blue and Team White, and a tally is kept across the world to give a running scoreline.
Last year’s event started in New Zealand and ended in Canada, with Team Blue beating Team White 134-129 across all the games played in 37 different countries.
Entry to the game on Saturday in Ice Sheffield is free.
