For Immediate Release

December 23, 2022

Saanichton, B.C. – BC Hockey, in partnership with Hockey Canada, is excited to announce that the online 50/50 will return for British Columbians during the 2023 World Junior Championship, hosted in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Moncton, New Brunswick from December 26, 2022, to January 5, 2023. 

Individuals who are aged 19 and older and are physically located in the province of British Columbia at the time of purchase will be eligible for the 50/50 draw.  

Fans will be able to purchase 50/50 tickets from their mobile device, tablet or computer during the purchasing window. All funds raised from the 50/50 draws will remain in British Columbia and will be invested directly back into female hockey initiatives, with a focus on initiation and “Try It” programs for the growing number new participants in our game.

"We are thrilled to bring back the online 50/50 draw for British Columbians during this great hockey tournament over the holiday season,” BC Hockey’s Chief Executive Officer Cameron Hope said. “This serves as a great opportunity for hockey fans to support female hockey at the grassroots level in our province, while also having a chance to take home some cash.”

There will be three draws, and three separate opportunities to purchase 50/50 tickets during Team Canada’s tournament schedule. Two will be during the round robin, with a third and final opportunity taking place ahead of a draw on January 5th, the date of the gold medal game. 

Your first shot at winning the 50/50 will be on December 28th when Team Canada takes on Germany. Tickets will be available for purchase when the draw opens on December 27th.
