The inaugural Britannia Cup will take place at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham, England, between the Saturday 11 and Monday 13 of January 2020. This international and club international (non-ISU) event will incorporate the British Synchronized Skating Championships 2020.
To be held at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham and National Ice Centre, the same venue as the ISU World Junior Synchronized Skating Championships 2020 (WJSYSC2020), the event is a further opportunity for British Ice Skating to showcase the strength, depth and passion that Great Britain has for skating and the synchronized skating community.
Set to be one of the biggest events in British Ice Skating’s annual calendar, with teams from every corner of Great Britain taking part as well as some of the top teams from around the world, teams will use the opportunity to prepare for the WJSYSC2020 taking place just nine weeks later. The competition weekend will be packed with action and world class competitive skating.
Amanda Hembrow-Jones, Chair of the Synchronized Skating Technical Committee said; “British Ice Skating is delighted to be hosting the inaugural Britannia Cup incorporating the British Synchronized Skating Championships 2020. This festival and celebration of synchronized skating is proving to be a hugely popular event and working with the excellent team at the Motorpoint Arena and National Ice Centre, we will ensure the event is a wonderful experience for the audience as well as the competitors”.
The Britannia Cup will see teams compete to be represented at the junior and senior world championships, forming part of the qualification process. There are also many other categories incorporating all skating age groups. The atmosphere at the event is hugely important to the teams and the supporting audiences at the arena always deliver this important role, giving great support to every team competing. It’s a competition full of action, drama and colour with passionate teams of skaters and hugely energetic supporters coming together to bring the event to life.
Synchronized skating is the fastest growing figure skating discipline and involves teams of 12-16 skaters performing in formation with speed and precision whilst skating intricate routines to music. It combines the beauty and elegance of freestyle skating with the excitement of a team sport, requiring hours of hard work and dedication on and off the ice to blend up to16 skaters into one unit. It needs skaters of all ages and abilities to work together as a team like never before.
Synchronized skating teams are spread throughout Great Britain, including the Isle of Wight, Gosport, West Wales, Basingstoke, Bracknell, Slough, Lee Valley, Sheffield, Deeside, Bradford, Solihull, Hull, Altrincham, Deeside, Nottingham, Aberdeen, Inverness, Stirling, Dumfries and Ayr who will all be in attendance.
The arena will also be hosting the WJSYSC2020 from Friday 13 – Saturday 14 March 2020. The spectacular, fast paced discipline, which requires clever choreography and highly skilled, dedicated athletes is set to be a huge hit, attracting audiences from around the globe.
