Wickenheiser World Female Hockey Festival attracts thousands of fans

Thousands of spectators gathered in Surrey January 31 to February 3, 2019 to catch the highly anticipated Wickenheiser World Female Hockey Festival (WickFest) at the Surrey Sport and Leisure Centre and Newton arena. After nine successful years in Calgary, the festival announced the expansion to Surrey in the spring of 2018 and sold-out quickly, registering over 800 female athletes from 48 teams from around the world.
WickFest aligns with the City of Surrey’s Sport Tourism Strategy and the Sport Surrey vision, which was developed to advance Surrey as a leader in the Sport Tourism industry and to maximize both economic benefits and sport development opportunities for the residents and businesses of Surrey.
