Following on from the success of the 2015 and 2016 tournaments, the SSE Arena in Belfast is proud to host the 2017 Northern Irish Connections Friendship Four tournament. This year's tournament will see Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and Clarkson University from the ECAC Hockey Conference compete against Providence College and the University of Maine from the Hockey East Conference for the prestigious Belpot Trophy.

The Belfast City Council’s Sister City agreement with Boston has played a vital role in helping to host this prestigious tournament since 2015.  This unique tournament will feature four top NCAA Division I Hockey programs competing at the highest level and will be a great opportunity for sporting fans to see future NHL stars.

“The Friendship Four tournament has been a phenomenal event for ECAC Hockey and its member institutions,” said ECAC Hockey commissioner Steve Hagwell. “All aspects of the tournament during the first two years have been first class, and created life-long memories. I know the teams participating in the 2017 tournament are eager to visit the great city of Belfast and to experience everything the Friendship Four has to offer.”
