The series, to be played at the University of Victoria Field Hockey Turf, gets underway with Game 1 on Friday, November 4, at 4:00 p.m. (all times Pacific). Game 2 is set for Saturday, November 5, at 3:00 p.m. and Game 3, if necessary, will be held on Sunday, November 6, at 3:00 p.m.

Victoria is seeking their fourth straight championship and 15th overall title after winning Canada West with a 7-0-1 record. York is still searching for its first national title. The Lions went 7-2-1 in the regular season and won the OUA thanks to a 2-1 come-from-behind road win in Saturday’s conference final.

The 2022 championship is a rematch of the 2018 final series at York, which Victoria swept 2-1 and 3-1. 

Since the best-of-three format was adopted in 2017, Canada West has won all four championship series. The last title for the OUA came in 2010 when Toronto took the banner after a five-team round-robin tournament.

The championship series will be streamed on CBC Gem and USPORTS.ca
