Canadian speed skating fans will have the unique opportunity to see the best skaters in the world – including members of the Canadian Olympic team who won an impressive four medals at the Beijing 2022 Winter Games – compete on the ice at home at Maurice Richard Arena from April 8-10, 2022.
Everything indicates that tickets will sell out quickly for this first post-pandemic live amateur sporting event in Montreal, so get yours as soon as possible. Ticketing options are available for hardcore and casual fans, with weekend passes starting at $34.95 and day tickets starting at $19.95.
The 2022 edition of the Short Track World Championships will mark the fourth time that Montreal will host this prestigious event after the Olympics, following PyeongChang 2018, Sochi 2014 and Salt Lake City 2002. Canada also hosted the event in Montreal in 1987, Moncton in 1982 and Quebec in 1979.
When Canada last hosted the event in 2018, sold-out crowds witnessed history as Charles Hamelin became the first Canadian in 20 years to be crowned world champion. All eyes will be on Hamelin again this time around, as the 37-year-old six-time Olympic medalist laces up his skates for the last time before officially retiring from the sport after an incredible 20-year career.
In addition to our Canadian skaters, superstars such as Suzanne Schulting (Netherlands), Ariana Fontana (Italy), Shaoang Liu (Hungary), Hwang Dae-heon (Korea) and many more will also be in action, which will make it a truly international celebration. of sports.
