The organizers of the 35th Annual CARHA Pacific Cup Hockey Tournament will host 134 adult hockey teams to Victoria January 20-22, 2012.

Victoria will again welcome over 3,000 players and family from across Canada and the USA.

“The Pacific Cup Tournament annually attracts the most teams that attend our tournaments held across Canada and despite slightly reduced available ice time due to an overlap with scheduled junior hockey home games, we have outstanding registration again this year,“ said CARHA’s Mike Ostrom.

“This tournament is an important annual highlight on Victoria’s sports calendar” says Hugh MacDonald, Executive Director of SportHost Victoria. “The current economic downturn that has affected travel in general, thankfully, does not affect the sports travel market to the same degree. We want to thank CARHA for continuing to host their tournament in Victoria. It contributes greatly to economic activity to our region.”
