University Cup Seeds/Schedule Announced

The seedings and quarter-final match-ups for the upcoming 2020 University Cup have been announced and the University of New Brunswick Reds have been deemed the team to beat, entering the tournament as the top seed.

Although many predicted UNB would face the OUA bronze medal-winning Western Mustangs in their first game, the Reds will instead meet the Canada West runner-up, and #8 seeded, University of British Columbia Thunderbirds in their opening game on Friday afternoon. The rest of the schedule looks like this (all times are AST):

THURSDAY, MARCH 12th

2PM - #2 Saskatchewan Huskies vs. #7 Western Mustangs
7PM - #3 Guelph Gryphons vs. #6 Saint Mary's Huskies

FRIDAY, MARCH 13th

2PM - #1 UNB Reds vs #8 UBC Thunderbirds
7PM - #4 Ottawa Gee-Gees vs #5 Acadia Axemen

SATURDAY, MARCH 14th

2PM - Semi-Final #1 (Thursday Winners)
7PM - Semi-Final #2 (Friday Winners)

SUNDAY

2PM - Bronze Medal Game
7PM - Gold Medal Game

Unfortunately, none of the games will be broadcast on television this year. Instead, all games will be streamed live on CBCSports.ca, CBC Gem, and the CBC Sports App.

Tournament passes are now available online. Single game tickets go on sale tomorrow at noon.
