On the morning of Thursday 1st November, it was announced that the 2014 Division 1 Men’s Ice Hockey Midwest Regional would be hosted by Miami University. The competition will take place in downtown Cincinnati on March 28th – 29th and this will be one of the four NCAA regional championships held. Miami University will be teaming up with U.S. Bank Arena and the Great Cincinnati Sports Corporation in order to hold the competition and it should be a very exciting time for all involved.
This will be the first time that Miami has hosted an NCAA ice hockey regional and that one has been held at the U.S. Bay Arena. Hockey fans in the area will likely be very excited about this announcement. Many residents of Miami are very passionate about the game and there is a lot of enthusiasm for it in Cincinnati. This is a great opportunity for the area to put some effort into hosting a regional and to get some great benefits out of it.
The head coach of Miami, Enrico Blasi, has said that “it is an honour and we are happy to be hosting a regional…to bring some of the best college hockey to our own town as they compete to play for a national championship will be special. Hockey has a great tradition in Cincinnati and we are honoured to be partners in this prestigious event.” The Miami hockey team is doing well, having qualified for seven NCAA Tournaments in a row. It will be interesting to see what happens in 2014 and who ends up coming out on top of the competition.
