The World 3vs3 Championship Ball Hockey Championships
are coming to Quebec in 2016!
In December of 2015, the World Ball Hockey Federation (WBHF) selected Canada to host the 2nd World 3vs3 Ball Hockey Championship to be hosted September 20 to 24 and presented by Coupe Burrows as the host organization.
On March 31 in Montreal the official press conference for this historic event as it will be the first time the World Championships will be held in Quebec. The Deputy Prime Minister, Ms. Lise Thériault, attended and welcomed the event to the Greater Montreal area.
The Coupe Burrows joins the Complex JC Perreault in St-Roch-de-Bass for the organization of this international event, which will attract the delegations of about fifteen countries. With facilities at the leading edge and a team of passionate people who believed in the project, all the ingredients are in place to make it a winning recipe. This event will be a hub for the development of ball hockey 3 vs 3 in the world.
This is excellent news for all the ball/dek hockey fans in Quebec who will have the chance to see the different countries who will fight for the title of world champion. At present the Canada are the reigning champions in the men’s division and Slovakia in the women’s division which was held in Bratislava, Slovakia in 2015. This event hopes to add Master’s (O40) division’s for both men’s and women’s divisions
Also, during the tournament, Coupe Burrows will be hosting the Classic Burrows Montcalm during September 23 to 25. With the use of two internal surfaces which will be used for the World Championships, the four exterior surfaces of the dek hockey Montcalm will serve for the Classic tournament. We expect no less than 150 teams for this Classic that will allow everyone to see the Czech Republic, Greece, Russia, Slovakia, United States of America and Canada as host along with other nations.
This will still be in our image, a great ball hockey festival not to be missed!
