Hometown Hockey is coming back to 6 Nations.
The touring three-day festival will finish at the Six Nations Sports and Cultural Memorial Centre in January. 3, according to a release from the council.
“We are so excited to bring Hometown Hockey to these Nations,” said Chief Hill.
“Our community was having such a tough year with COVID and the searches of former residential school sites; our people want some fun right now. We are looking forward to celebrating as a group and welcoming Rogers Hockey to Six Nations.”
The Hometown Hockey tweet says it starts in 2022 with the visit and tells those interested in attending to follow for future details.
“We are looking forward to celebrating the Haudenosaunee people & their stories on a national Sportsnet broadcast from these Nations of the Grand River Territory,” it reads.
That broadcast hosted by Tara Slone and Ron MacLean will feature a game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Carolina Hurricanes set to drop at 7:30 p.m.
Hometown Hockey describes as an outdoor celebration of hockey with interactive communications, live entertainment and alumni greetings. It has visited more than 130 towns since it was launched in 2014.
Six Nations says it would highlight all the community offers, from sports programs to local talent and youth.
Tickets are free for the event, but anyone wishing to attend does need to register in advance.
Six Nations said strict COVID-19 protocols would be in place, including a health check, mandatory masks, and proof of complete vaccination for anyone 12 and older.
