25th edition of the International Piccolos Tournament in Fribourg

The 25th edition ofthe International Piccolos Tournament in Fribourg will take place in 2021. The organizing committee has decided to postpone the tournament due to the construction work in progress at the BCF Arena for the next two years. A lack of infrastructure and the uncertainty of the detailed schedule of the construction work make it impossible to organize the tournament. We will be back with a special 25th edition in 2021!

The tournament

In 1993, the TIPF (Piccolos International Tournament of Fribourg, Switzerland ) is born in the mind of some ice hockey fans. The initiators, all members of the junior department of the Hockey Club Fribourg-Gottéron, realized that the young hockey players where going to tournament in Switzerland and abroad but that nothing similar existed in Fribourg.

As result the first tournament took glace in March 1995 and this event grew regularly and is now a non avoidable event of the Fribourg ice hockey environment.

The TIPF is also called The NHL Tournament of Fribourg, thanks to an agreement settled with the NHL organization. During the Tournament each competition is wearing the colors of one of the prestigious NHL Teams.

In the beginning organized as part of the Fribourg Gottéron Hockey Club, the TIPF is since 1997 independent. It is still enjoys an excellent support from the club, for what the TIPF is thankful to HC Fribourg-Gottéron.
