BINGHAMTON, NY – The Binghamton University Ice Hockey Club will face off against SUNY Broome once again in the 2016-2017 Presidents Cup ice hockey game, taking place at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 3, at the SUNY Broome Ice Center. The presidents are covering the tab for this year’s game, so admission is free.
The Presidents Cup pits ice hockey clubs from both schools against each another. Binghamton University and SUNY Broome have been ice hockey rivals since 1975.
"I’m a true fan of hockey and excited to watch these two teams go head to head for the third year in a row," said Binghamton University President Harvey Stenger. "The rivalry is real, and I would encourage everyone to stop by and join us for the game."
"Our two institutions partner in many different ways, from shared research projects and transfer opportunities to the new incubator in downtown Binghamton. So on the ice we are friendly rivals, and we look forward to another exciting game," SUNY Broome President Kevin Drumm said about the now traditional annual faceoff.
The winner of the game will take home the Presidents Cup trophy, which has been held by Binghamton University for the past two seasons.
The first 150 people through the door will receive a free Presidents Cup T-shirt. A shuttle bus, sponsored by Campus Recreation, will leave from the Binghamton University Union at 6:15 p.m. and return after the game. Visit binghamton.edu/presidentscup for more information.
