NIAGARA FALLS, ON--(Marketwire - Sep 5, 2012) - More than 100 teams and 800 players from across Canada will head to Niagara Falls this September to battle it out for the hockey Redwood Cup National Championship, taking place across the street from this hotel in Niagara Falls, Canada.

From September 27th to the 29th, 2012, 11 rinks will be set up along Victoria Avenue and just steps from the Courtyard Niagara Falls, offering hotel deals in Niagara Falls. Winners will take home the Redwood Cup and be crowned "Canada's Greatest Street Hockey Players" on National CBC Television. The national championship tournament moves to Niagara Falls after three years in Victoria, BC, and national program director Scott Hill is excited about the change. "We felt it was time to host the event in a central province in order to make it more accessible to all," he says. "Niagara Falls was selected because it is a world-class tourism destination and because the street location perfectly meets event technical requirements."
