2022 Tropical Freeze
Bangkok, THAILAND – July 13th-16th, 2022
In association with Asia Ice Events, Powerplay Sports & Entertainment is excited to announce the first tournament held in Thailand since the start of the COVID pandemic – the 2022 Tropical Freeze.

Held in Bangkok at the brand new Thailand International Ice Hockey Arena from July 13th to 16th, this youth tournament will have 5 different divisions ranging from U9 to U17. Thailand’s new hockey arena looks to be an absolute spectacle as it boasts Olympic sized ice in a standalone facility. With Thailand starting to open up and relaxing restrictions, we hope to feature more tournaments in the region in the near future.

Team invites have been sent to youth teams across Asia, but if you are interested in entering a team for this tournament please contact us at

Disc Ninja Update
Shanghai, CHINA – April, 2022
Last month, Powerplay Sports and Entertainment introduced Disc Ninja Ultimate Frisbee training in Shanghai. They have now updated their logo and continue to look for players interested in entering the Ultimate Frisbee scene in China.

One of the more niche sports in China, Ultimate Frisbee has been gaining rapid popularity in recent years. As an international metropolis, Shanghai has been the domestic origin for many new and interesting movements, and frisbee sports are no exception having been widely carried out across the city for over 10 years. Nowadays, active frisbee club activities can be seen at various landmarks around the city including parks, football fields and other public locations.

Our coaches are seasoned Ultimate Frisbee veterans in the Shanghai Frisbee community, and training takes place on the only fully indoor artificial grass pitch in Shanghai.

COVID League Updates Hong Kong
HONG KONG – March, 2022
There is a glimmer of hope for leagues across the HK region including the CIHL, SCIHL and HKIHL, as there is a chance that restrictions will be relaxed to the point that hockey can resume on April 20th. While uncertainty and a lack of clarity on the relaxing of restrictions still remains, there does appear to be a chance that rinks will be allowed to reopen on this date, although no official word yet. We hope you and your loved ones are doing well, and hope to bring you more information as Hong Kong begins to open up in their multi stage relaxation of COVID protocols.
