Presenting sponsor of the USHL Fall Classic is CCM, as part of a new and comprehensive marketing and promotional partnership entered into between Reebok/CCM and the USHL.

The preseason event, which has become the most highly scouted event in all of hockey, will feature all 16 USHL Member Clubs each competing in three games in front of scouts from NHL teams and NCAA hockey programs.

"There really is nothing like the USHL Fall Classic anywhere in hockey," said USHL Commissioner Skip Prince. "To see scouts from virtually every NHL team, NCAA Hockey Division I and Division III school, and the League's extraordinary fans come together in Sioux City is just special. With CCM as our presenting sponsor and the Musketeers and Sioux City as our hosts, this event just keeps getting better and better."

With the expansion of the League to a record 16 teams, the USHL Fall Classic will now be played over four days, beginning with five games on Wednesday, September 22nd and concluding with five games on Saturday, September 25th to wrap up the 24-game event.

More information about the event will be posted online in the coming weeks at www.ushlfallclassic.com
