3ICE, the new and totally independent, three-on-three professional ice hockey league, announced its inaugural season schedule as play will begin in North America on Sunday, June 20, 2021. The inaugural season will span 10 weeks with the playoffs and championship set for Saturday, Aug. 21, 2021. Games will air exclusively in the United States on CBS and CBS Sports Network. Canadian television viewers can watch all 3ICE games on TSN and RDS.

 

A fan vote to decide the nine tour stops was held last month and hockey fans across the continent made their voices heard as the League has narrowed its schedule down to 13 cities across the United States and Canada. Of those cities, a regular season will be held over eight consecutive weeks, with a bye-week ahead of the 3ICE playoffs and championship tournament.

 

“The fan input has been incredible, we had nearly 7,000 votes across our entire digital platform in just over a month,” said E.J. Johnston, CEO of 3ICE. “This has helped us whittle down from the original 20 markets in consideration to just 13. We are now finalizing the details in each of those markets and we’ll announce our final nine arenas and the exact order of the tour schedule later in November.”

 

Thirteen Finalist Cities for Inaugural 3ICE Season:

 

 

Boston, Mass. (USA)

Buffalo, N.Y. (USA)

Columbus, Ohio (USA)

Grand Rapids, Mich. (USA)

Hershey, Pa. (USA)

Las Vegas, Nev. (USA)

Minneapolis, Minn. (USA)

Montreal, Quebec (Canada)

Nashville, Tenn. (USA)
