Come See “Classic” Hockey

Black Hawks Announce September Tournament

The Waterloo Black Hawks have been playing against the Sioux City Musketeers for more than 40 years.  The Hawks’ first games versus the Des Moines Buccaneers and Dubuque Fighting Saints were in 1980.  The Cedar Rapids RoughRiders have been part of memorable matchups at Young Arena for more than a decade.

Waterloo’s closest United States Hockey League rivals will come from across the state to Young Arena September 17th to 19th for the 2015 Iowa Classic presented by Luann Gerber of Revolution Realty Team.

Each club will play two games in front of fans, scouts, and coaches just days before USHL rosters are finalized ahead of the 2015/16 regular season.

“There is always a great deal of intensity at this time of year.  Everyone has something to play for, and with Waterloo’s best rivals all in town together, this should be a great event for hockey fans from across Iowa,” said Black Hawks Head Coach P.K. O’Handley.

The complete Iowa Classic schedule is below (all times Central):

Date Teams Time
Thursday, Sep. 17 Black Hawks vs. Des Moines Buccaneers 7:05 p.m.
Friday, Sep. 18 Cedar Rapids Roughriders vs. Sioux City Musketeers 3:05 p.m.

Saturday, Sep. 19 Sioux City Musketeers vs. Dubuque Fighting Saints 11:05 a.m.

All-Session Passes providing admission for each of the five scheduled games will be available for $15.  Single-Day passes will be $7.  All seating will be general admission.  Waterloo Black Hawks season ticket holders will receive tickets for all three days of the Iowa Classic as part of their season ticket package.

“There are a few other similar events across the USHL this fall; many season ticket holders in those other markets won’t receive complimentary tickets,” noted O’Handley.  “I hope Black Hawks fans take advantage of this inaugural event to set the tone early as the most passionate fans in the league.”

Tickets for the Iowa Classic presented by Luann Gerber of Revolution Realty Team will go on sale Wednesday, August 26th from the Domino’s Black Hawks Box Office.  For more details, call (319) 291-7680.
