PWHL coming to Detroit's Little Caesars Arena

Professional women's hockey is coming to Detroit next month.



The Professional Women's Hockey League is making an appearance in Detroit later this year as part of their inaugural PWHL Takeover Weekend that will also see stops in Pittsburgh and St. Paul, Minnesota. 

The matchup on March 16 in Detroit will see PWHL Boston face-off against PWHL Ottawa; as of now, the League does not feature team names. 

“Bringing these games to three outstanding venues during Women’s History Month will create an unforgettable highlight of this inaugural PWHL season,” PWHL senior vice president of hockey operations Jayna Hefford said in a statement. “For fans attending these games and players who are competing on the ice, this will be a great celebration of the advancement and opportunity for women and hockey everywhere.”

Tickets for the event go on sale later this month on February 14. 

“We’re thrilled to partner with the PWHL, and to welcome Boston and Ottawa to Little Caesars Arena on March 16,” said Ryan Gustafson, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer, Ilitch Sports + Entertainment. “It’s been exciting to see the early success of the PWHL, and we’re honored for the opportunity to put on a great event for our fans and support growing the game of hockey for young women.”
