Ducks and The Rinks Set to Host 2013 FIRS Inline Hockey World Championships in July
The Ducks will serve as host to the FIRS (International Roller Sports Federation) Inline Hockey World Championships from July 7-21, 2013. The World Championships are set to take place on U.S. soil for the first time since 2006 (Detroit) and just the fourth time since the tournament’s inception in 1995 (also Chicago and New Orleans). The Ducks and THE RINKS expect over 60 teams from approximately 25 countries to travel to Southern California to compete in next July’s championships, set to be held at both Honda Center and THE RINKS – Huntington Beach Inline presented by Honda.

With the Ducks also hosting the 2013 Inline Hockey USA Roller Sports (USARS)-AAU Junior Olympics and the AAU Inline Hockey Adult Nationals, Southern California is set to become the epicenter of inline hockey next summer. The Ducks have hosted the USARS-AAU Inline Hockey Junior Olympics the last three consecutive years. The first week (July 7-14) of the two-week World Championships tournament will feature the FIRS Junior Mens and Womens squads from throughout the world. The Adult Mens and Womens world inline teams will take to the stage for the final week of the tournament (July 14-21). Additional Orange County sites for the 2013 FIRS Inline Hockey World Championships will be announced at a later date.

FIRS is the world governing body for roller sports and was established in 1924 in Switzerland. The Inline Hockey World Championships serve as the sport’s highest profile annual international tournament. The World Championships have grown from an inaugural 12 teams in 1995, to an expected 60+ teams in 2013. Both amateur and professional players are eligible to compete in the Inline Hockey World Championships. The United States will return to their home soil to defend their title, defeating Canada in the finals last summer in Colombia.

With THE RINKS Development Program presented by Honda launch in February 2009, the Ducks operate six local skating facilities: three ice rinks (THE RINKS – Anaheim ICE, THE RINKS – Westminster ICE and THE RINKS –Yorba Linda ICE), as well as three inline facilities (THE RINKS – Huntington Beach Inline, THE RINKS – Irvine Inline and THE RINKS – Corona Inline).
