Festival Schedule Changes Due to Weather Conditions

PHOENIX, ARIZONA – Due to the extreme cold weather conditions in the morning, the schedule of games has been changed slightly for National Hockey Festival. Thanksgiving Day, all games will be 45 minutes in length and will begin at 8AM rather than 6AM. On Friday, November 25, all games will remain 1-hour in length, but will begin at 8AM rather than 7AM.

“We have had to adjust the schedule due to early morning frosts. In order to maintain quality field conditions, playing on the fields is prohibited during a frost. We are hoping for warmer weather on Saturday and Sunday and are looking forward to the next four days of field hockey,” said Collins.
