Pittsburgh gets 2013 Frozen Four, Philly in 2014
Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Pittsburgh will host the 2013 men's ice hockey Frozen Four, and the 2014 event will be held in Philadelphia.
The Consol Energy Center will be the site of the 2013 Frozen Four, and the following year it will be held at the Wachovia Center.
"The number of quality bids submitted made the process of choosing the host sites extremely difficult for the committee," said Bill Bellerose, chair of the Division I Men's Ice Hockey Committee and associate athletic director at College of the Holy Cross. "We are extremely pleased with every aspect of both winning bids - from the venue, to the community support to the cities themselves, everything will be first-class. We are confident both sites will put forth the ultimate championship experience for the student-athletes and fans alike."
The Consol Energy Center is set to open this August and will be the new home of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The 2011 men's Frozen Four will be held in St. Paul, Minnesota, at the Xcel Energy Center. The 2012 championships will be held at the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, Florida.
