The Continental Cup in Angers

The Dukes of Angers, winners of the Coupe de France a few months ago, will return to the European Cup next October.

The Dukes of Angers will return to the European Cup by the end of the year. Second at the end of the regular season, the Angevins went to the final of the championship, against the Brûleurs de Loups de Grenoble. A final finally won by the Isère club, which was able to celebrate its 8th league title. However, the Dukes of Angers can be satisfied with their season, they who will return to the European Cup at the end of the year…

A first at the IceParc

Moreover, the return of these European matches to Angers will mark a major turning point in the history of the club. Indeed, from October 14 to 16, 2022, the Angers IceParc will host European meetings for the first time. On the occasion of the Continental Cup, the Ducs d’Angers defeated in turn the Hungarians of Ferencvaros, the Romanians of Miercurea Ciuc, as well as the winner of the first round on the side of Bulgaria.

Thereafter, the team that will finish in first place will participate in the rest of the competition, in Wales, with the two Cardiff clubs, as well as Karagandy and Jelgava.

Another event at the IceParc

Thus, thanks to the qualification of the Ducs d’Angers for the Continental Cup, the IceParc once again has the opportunity to shine. Inaugurated in 2019, this venue will therefore host a new large-scale sporting event, after having already announced the hosting of the 27th and 28th editions of the ISU (International Skating Union) Grand Prix de France a few months ago. The Angers IceParc will also host the Junior World Synchronized Skating Championship in March 2023. These events could in particular allow the City of Angers to fill up with tourists with the 4,000 places available within its enclosure. A great opportunity to make the city shine in the eyes of sports fans.
