The Oxdog Open will be making the return to the court at the University of Guelph's, Mitchell Athletic Centre again for 2024.
This state of the art facility was one that created many great memories for last years tournament and is set to create many more this upcoming one.
The Main Gym (The Event Centre), with a capacity of 1500 people will play host to the Elite division primarily, with teams from the Open and Women's divisions also getting some games in this atmoshpere as well. Allowing for a full floorball court, the Event Centre is the perfect spot for teams to have the full floorball experience, while also allowing for spectators a safe, comfortable place to watch the games of their favourite teams.
The Mitchell Gym, with a capacity of 200 people will play host to the Open, Womens, and Kids division primarily. Just steps away from the Event Centre, the Mitchell gym offers a touch smaller of court, but allows for a quicker and fast pace game to take place. With being so close to the Event Centre, you will be sure to not miss any of the action througout the weekend.
